Have you ever heard the saying, 'When it rains it pours'? Well, that's what's been going on in my life. It seems that things have gone to pretty lame, to really lame around here lately. And, unfortunately, it's effected my writing as well.
I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it, or if I have this is for those reading that don't know about this, but my husband has Multiple Sclerosis, which is a mental disability that effects the way your brain communicates with your body. Well, five years ago he was placed on permanent disability because of this. Then a few months ago we were told that he needed to go in for a reevaluation. We did, and now suddenly he's not disabled any more and can go back to work. Well, if they actually looked at him and watched my husband move, he's worse then when he was originally fired from his job and then diagnosed with the MS. So, not only do I care for him, and our daughter, but now we're fighting this disability thing as well.
On top of the disability, I was attacked by our swamp cooler. Part of the fan blade shot out at me. Thankfully I wasn't hurt by it, but it was a horrible experience. We were without cooling in our house for a while, and it took a toll on my husband. He has a seizure disorder that goes along with the MS and because of the stress and heat, he had a seizure. When he came around he was very disoriented and it's been a little difficult for him the last couple of days.
So, because of these issues, it's been difficult to get Healing formatted for Smashwords. And then, luck would have it, something went wrong and my document reverted to an older version of it and I have to go back over it with a fine toothed comb. I have looked everywhere for my most recent version of Healing, and still can't find one. Part of me thinks something is saying I need to wait a bit longer before releasing Healing, even though I really want it out for those who have read Alone. But, I guess I should listen to the fates in this.
Needless to say, I am now working to edit Healing, again, and will let you all know when I have it closer to a release date. I am so sorry, and really hate what has happened. I think some past life of mine must have broken a warehouse of mirrors and it's going to stick with my spirit forever. Or something like that because I have horrible luck.
Well, goodnight from California. I hope things in the lives of my readers are going much better. And if they're crap like mine, or worse, then I hope you have an upswing soon.
