Please, forgive me

I am so sorry that I have been lacking in my posts lately. I know many of you have been waiting for the next installment of The Chronicles of Shane and I feel bad for letting you down. I promise to have one up very, very soon. I feel so stupid, because I let people and certain events pull me down into a slump. Not only the situation with Joie, but I was on the receiving end of some pretty mean emails. I won't go into detail, but one of them was so bad that it almost made me physically ill.

Then I realized something, by reacting this way, I was giving certain people power over me and that's weak of me. So, I'm putting on my big girl panties and moving on. I'm going out for a nice spa day this evening with a dear friend of mine and then I'm getting back to doing what I do best...writing.

So,thanks for hanging in there and I promise there are plenty of more Shane, Lost Shifters, EMS Heat, Drone Vampires and other characters to come.

  1. Nothing to forgive. You're busy being a famous author and all that stuff. Oh yeah and Mom and sister and friend and ack. How do you have time for us at all? ;-)

    Sorry you had a rough patch with the e-mail but you're right, it's THEIR issues, not yours and don't let them toss it to you. Enjoy your spa day and looking forward to all the new stories coming our way.

  4. Chris-I'm getting ready to leave soon and I plan on having a great time. I won't be doing any drinking, though, I'm still trying to recover from NOLA O.O

  5. Enjoy the spa day! Good for you for making the conscious decision to retain the power over how things effect you. (We don't always win these battles, but it worth the effort to try.)

    Mean people SUCK! [flipping them the bird]

    hugs

  7. Have a great spa day Mom and I shake my fist at whoever sent you bad emails! You are awesome and I hope you have an awesome day and that your weekend is amazing. People who are toxic like to spread their poison and I'm glad that you've decided to stop taking in their poison. Hugz!!

  8. Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I WILL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW"

  9. Whatever you give to life, it gives you back
    Do not hate anybody
    The hatred which comes out from you will someday comeback to you
    Love others, and love will comeback to you..

  16. I really don't get people. You are like the third author that I've read about who has recently had an issue with people being jerks. I'm not sure why people feel the need to be so negative. If they don't like something, just don't buy the next book or movie or comic or whatever. No need to be an ass to the person/people creating. I hope you enjoyed your day at the spa. I for one am most definitely looking forward to more of your work. I 'm particularly excited about Russel's Reversal.

  18. Thanks avatarminx and littlemeiga-the last email contained a link of a video of a teen boy being gay bashed. Seeing as how I am the mother of a gay son, you can understand how that upset me so much.

  19. So sorry to hear about the hate mails. People are sometimes very stupid. Especially if it's about something they don't understand.

    If they continue to harass you, let me know. I got a bunch of knights on retainer and they have real swords and not only know how to use them but aren't afraid to do so ;-)

  20. LOL Lis. Are they like the stone ones from the last Harry Potter movie, because they were really cool.

  21. They are way cooler and way hotter too! Think tall blond/dark/auburn and gorgeous in chain mail! Well some of them. Way easier to cuddle up with! One of them even does a mean Wolvelrine-halloween-outfit!
