It’s almost 2023, thank goodness!!

I feel like I keep saying this at year’s end, ever since the beginning of the pandemic. I’m so tired of the pandemic and illness and depression and feeling hopeless.

I’m DETERMINED that 2023 is going to be better!!  And I’m sending out all wonderful thoughts and hopes for you that your year will be wonderful too.

That said, on the book front, I have to say that I tried.

But I am psychologically incapable of letting a book go to publishing without one final personal read, no matter that my team is wonderful.
And guess who is sick again and still on deadline with another book?
So, next week sometime for ADEC instead of the 31st.
Yes, I know.
Sorry. 🙁
I hate ending 2022 feeling like a failure, but maybe i can begin 2023 feeling like a success if you all love this book.
xoxo and non-contagious hugs,

    Now I know what all the fuss about with COVID. After three weeks, I’m finally negative and feeling alive again. No hospital, thank goodness but miserable has a whole new meaning to me. You have my sympathy. As for the book, I can wait. Have TOO many books to read out of my Kindle anyway. Have a Happy New Year and pray for a better and healthier year.

    Will you notify us when you are ready to put DEAD END CHRISTMAS out. Get well and cut back on your publishing schedule. It is causing too much stress and stress makes us sick.

    This 100%. Especially as Amazon keeps deciding to cancel the pre-orders rather than rescheduling them.

    Feel Better!
