News from the writing cave ...
Hello dear readers,
I hope you're having a fabulous day and that life is being kind to you.
I've been sitting on some news I can no longer hide as it relates to book deadlines, promises made, and, quite frankly, my reputation as a person. So it's time for the raw, unadulterated truth.
For many months now, I've been in author burnout. I can actually date when it started: Jan 2018, when I completed Hearts & Minds, book six in the Crown of Blood series.
Since then, despite releasing three books (The Fire Thief, The Winged Assassin, and Final Moves), writing has been a daily struggle of me willing words onto the page and my brain answering back, with, "No. I'm exhausted. Stop asking me to write because I don't have it in me."
At first, I had no idea what was happening and I just forced myself to keep going—hence the two books in The Fire Thief series. I had hoped that by writing Stasha's fabulous story, I'd rediscover the magic.
It wasn't to be.
By mid-2019, I had a total collapse. I could not get out of bed in the morning for love or money. Still my conscience would not leave me alone—I had promised to finish the Crown of Blood series.
Like all candidates for burnout, I could not accept that I was sick and leave it alone. I pushed on and finished Final Moves in January 2020—two years since Heart & Minds. Despite everything, I think Final Moves is a brilliant ending to the series.
But now for the hard truth....
In the process of finishing the series, I destroyed my passion for writing fiction. I'll go so far to say that I feel physically ill when I think about it—even in worlds and with characters I love.
Not only is this heartbreaking to me, it also means that I'm not going to meet the end of March pre-order for The Crowned Killer. Erin St Pierre has mostly recovered from her long-term illness and is working on the book but my part will definitely be delayed. Obviously, this impacts on the final book in the Queen of Extinction series too.
As soon as we have release dates for these books (translate: when I feel stronger and able to write fiction again) we'll let you know. Prayers will be welcome :-)
As part of my healing, I'm working slowly on a non-fiction project that is bringing me joy—the thing I need most right now. I will keep you posted on that.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate you all. I know I haven't treated you well over the past months and I understand if you need to move on. If, however, you decide to stay the journey with me, I'll forever regard you as my friend.
Until next time,
