Deadlines and disasters  

I apologize. I wish I could say I'll do better at updating, but it's very conditional.

Last year my mother had a heart attack. We thought she was going to die, but very luckily, she didn't. However, she has taken a major hit. We are all concerned, and it takes more time to ensure that she's okay.

It's had a major impact on my life. So I do apologize because I value all the readers who have hung in there and read my books.

I will try to do better. And I thank you for continuing to read my stories.

*hugs very tightly* I am keeping you and your mom in my thoughts and prayers, sweetheart!

Thank you so much, sweetie. I fear this is the downward slope for her as she's very old. But at least she had a chance to get out of the hospital and live independently. You are always so lovely and I thank you. <3

Hi Catt! I've been meaning to drop you a line since we met in March, but real life intruded, and here we, four months later. I hope thing settle down for you very soon. I'm looking forward to reading your upcoming release. Can't wait, actually! The cover is lovely and the blurb intriguing.

Hi Mickie! RL always does. The second I returned home I came down with a killer cold and was sick for a month. I'm still running to catch up. I've thought of our enjoyable dinner often and you. Would you please tell me the title of your cross-dressing novel? I've been trying to figure out which one it is and keep getting interrupted. A title would be so much more direct. *g*

I hope you will enjoy this story. I have to admit even doing the editorial reads, I kept getting sucked back into it and I know what happens. Hee! I have to say, this may be my favourite cover that I've done for myself although I'm not sure I can top A Strong Hand. You must let me know if you like it!

My novel is Taste. It's the second book in the Horizons universe.

Maybe we'll get lucky and see each other again later on this year. We can critique our stories over a good glass of wine.

Best of luck on your upcoming release. I'm sure it'll be a big hit.

Deadlines and disasters about sums it up too. A pox on both of them!

Nothing like a good D&B kiss in the morning! I swear, I've been running for so long, and making less money doing it. Maybe my fortune is just around the corner. Let's hope.

Good to hear from you hon. Best wishes to you and your Mum!

Yes, I am alive. Last year was very scary when she landed in the hospital. I truly thought she was going to die, she looked so bad. She was in pain, she could barely breathe. And yet, she made it and out of the hospital AND nursing home! However I fear this is the beginning of the end. I have to spend a lot more time with her and my stepdad making sure they're okay. I haven't even had time to do my own self promo and keeping up with writing and friends is right out. I beg your forgiveness. Lots of love.

Thank you. Unfortunately she just fell down outside the bank. Luckily she did not break a hip or anything, although she did a pretty bad abrasion to her hand and arm. She's been falling outside since her 30s because she's always in a hurry and doesn't watch where she's going. She should stop that. *g* Thank you very much for your concern. I appreciate it.

And thank you for that! It's so nice to know you enjoy them!
