There comes a time in the creative cycle when an artist needs to take a little sabbatical and recharge one’s creative juices, but I wanted to pop back in and tell you: I’m not dead yet. It’s been almost two years since I finished writing Hearts of Chaos. A much longer sabbatical than I thought I would take, but “I’m on maternity leave” turned into “I’m taking a little break” to “Someday I will write again.” I know writers who manage full time jobs plus popping out babies plus writing a couple books a year. My hat is off to those wonder women. In good news, I can tell you that I’m starting to feel like myself again and I’m actually looking forward to writing again. I’m not sure what that will look like on the publishing front. The publishing industry has changed so much in the time since I first started writing Hearts of Darkness. Some good, some bad. I need to figure out how my little books can find their audience.

You can always order autographed copies of the Deadglass Trilogy from Secret Garden Books in Seattle. The trilogy is available in print, ebook, and audiobook.

Thanks for your support!

    Nothing wrong with taking time off to be with your family… Whew glad to hear you’re not dead yet, because I’m really looking forward to book 4 :-/

    Kira, I’m so happy to hear you’re feeling like writing again! Absolutely everyone must take a break now and then and it’s a good thing that you honored that need for yourself. But, like I said, I’m thrilled you’re back!

      I’m coming off of a several year sabbatical myself. Scary but exciting. Looking forward to reading more of your writings in the future – you are a wonderful storyteller! :)
