Life has been hectic, to say the least.
My cancer is back. My back surgery hasn’t ended the way I wanted it too, and now I’ve sprained my foot. That all sucks and I’m so stressed that reviewing has been hard for me recently.
However, it’s not all bad. I’m helping edit my first two books (Triumph Over Tragedy and Beyond the Sun). I’m also (when I screw my head on straight) going to dabble in slush reading for a magazine and I’ve even had the opportunity to beta read a few novels. I’ve decided that I’ll grow old and die before I find a career in freelance editing, so I’m trying to blaze my own trail and make it happen for myself.
This has all had an impact on my blog. I haven’t reviewed as much recently because I’ve been so stressed out about health issues, and so busy with editing projects, that I just haven’t had the brainpower. The truth is, I’m just living in some constant sphere of exhaustion and hyperstress that this past week or so anything that isn’t absolutely necessary has just been too much to handle.
I’ve been reading a lot and I hope to find time tonight or tomorrow to write out a ton of backlogged reviews. I also have some interviews I hope to write out soon, and some projects for my blog that I’ve completed (I forced myself to read some “romantic fantasy” and I will write a bit about the books I read and my impressions of romantic plots and etc). I need to write up some stuff regarding said project(s) for your viewing pleasure. I just need to unwind enough to get all that done.
Anyway, all that is to say thanks to all the people who have stuck with me through all the confusion in my life. I’m surprised I still have any readers. I can’t figure out what makes it worth sticking around, but I appreciate that you do.
