There’s a ton of shit flying around in my life right now, but I thought I’d give readers a quick update on the status of the third and final book in the JUST BREATHE trilogy. I thought JUST BREATHE would be ready for publication in August. That’s not happening. It will probably be more like October or maybe even November. My editor can’t touch it until September, which is just as well since I’m very busy helping out my dad, who was diagnosed with cancer a couple weeks ago.
Some of you know that I lost my mom to cancer in 2001, so my dad’s diagnosis has been a real sucker punch. But he’s ready to fight, and so am I. I’m sharing this info because a few readers have expressed disappointment that JUST BREATHE is taking so long to publish. I hope you’ll understand and bear with me. The book is drafted. It has a cover and a blurb. All it needs now is editing and revision. I can’t control how long those two things will take. I promise I’ll get the book out as soon as I can, but my family comes first.
If you’ve recently posted a review on Goodreads, I haven’t seen it. I gave up Goodreads for Lent. Okay, not for Lent, but I quit checking it for reasons I won’t go into here. But I LOVE good reviews (and could REALLY use some uplifting words right about now), so if you don’t mind posting your review for either book to Amazon (or sending me a link to your blog if you have a review there), I’ll be happy to pimp it.
HUGE thanks to everyone who bought the books and liked my Amazon Author Page. Last week, rankings for EXHALE got all the way into the 600s on Amazon. INHALE reached the 700s. Holy shit, people! AMAZING!
