I wasn’t sure if I should put this up as #1, but it really shows the entire theme of 2018 for me. There are no tags or categories because this was a spontaneous and crushing announcement. Some things improved while others went even further south, but I guess part of me wants to revisit this. Guess I’m also curious as to how this one got the top spot since it was kind of a downer. Going to add a few notes here as well.
This post went live on August 11, 2018. (A month that will live in pain and infamy for me.)
So, this is (was) a sticky because I want to make sure people see this. Everything else is still below and I’m writing this with a heavy heart. (Not gotten any lighter!)
Due to financial issues and personal developments (UNDERSTATEMENT!), this looks like it’s my last year of publishing. (Might have been a little too dramatic here, but it felt that way.) I have to put my time and energy into something that brings in money with the hope that I can return. Maybe I can release a book or two throughout the year, but I can’t guarantee it. At best, I can do War of Nytefall: Lost in September and pray that I can get War of Nytefall: Rivalry out in December. (I didn’t pull off the second part of this.) After that, I can’t make any promises.
My blogging is scheduled until end of October and I might not add much onto it. (This was just before WordPress told me I was on a massive posting streak. I’m determined to hit 1,000.) I’ll do a Saturday update, try to keep up with a few friends, and make a post or two throughout the week once November hits. Other social media sites will be even more difficult to keep up with in the future. That’s really only Twitter, so we’ll see what happens there.
I’m not happy about this and I’m crying. I wish I could have gone the distance and find that lucky break, but my time ran out. (It still feels this way.) Thanks to everyone who supported me. The published books will always be available, so I hope they will not be forgotten. (Sales say otherwise.) Maybe things will turn around and I can return. (If even as a personal project.) To everyone else who is still in the fray, good luck and feel free to send me a guest post that I can share. (Offer still open!) I’ll try to lend a hand to others when I can.
