Last July, I announced a suspension of projects as we learned my 12 year old son, Sam, was diagnosed with Leukemia. He underwent treatment and was in remission. He started the last stage of of his treatment a month ago. We were smooth sailing.
Yesterday, I got a call from his doctor with his latest blood tests. Sam has relapsed. His cancer is back and he will have to start treatment again.
The kicker is once returned to remission, he will need a bone marrow transplant.
We are shocked by this. Here we are, smooth sailing, end in sight, and now.....
Suffice it to say, writing takes a back seat again.
BLOOD WILL RUN is pretty much complete. It will hit within the next week. After that, I will be on a "soft" schedule, which means, basically new stuff comes out when it comes out. I can only let you know what I am working on next.
I do not see myself abandoning writing completely right now as it does serve as an emotional outlet and brings additional income to our family. (And I have a feeling I'll have some anger to work out.)
Taking care of my family will always be my #1 priority. I know all of you understand that. We have a long, hard road ahead of us.
Pied Piper of the Undead 2 is the next project on the board. If you want to know for sure when it goes live, please join the mailing list by hitting the link above. I will inform everyone with each new release using the email as I do not know when I will be back on here.
I feel so grateful for all of you who have bought and enjoyed my books. I've made connections with many of you. Thank you so much for your support.
If you have a little time sometime today, please just say a small prayer for my son.
His name is Sam. He is 12 years old. He has an identical twin brother named Joe and an older sister named Claire. He loves Legos, reading, Star Wars, and animals. He is the strongest person I have ever known.
Take care of yourselves,
