Progress Report: Summer Edition (UPDATED)

  1. Life can get Complicated. (AND IT HAS DONE SO AGAIN)
  2. “Complicated” and “Write Book” don’t play well together. (BUT I KEEP AT IT)
  3. The guilt of not living up to one’s own expectations—and announced goals—is horrible and by no means helpful, especially when Complicated is being dealt with.
  4. Aside from taking many, many work hours to produce, a book that has any aspiration toward quality has some costs involved that, depending on circumstances, can be felt anywhere along the range from costly to downright expensive.
  5. It can be less than motivating during Complicated times to know that publication means immediate loss and only theoretical over-a-long-time break-even gain.
  6. I am trying. Maybe I’m not trying my best in terms of writing speed, but I am trying my best in terms of quality. (YEP. STILL AT IT.)
  7. I am trying to do better with both.
  8. The Vale of Silence will be available as soon as it can be made so.
  9. I am sorry for the wait…and I am hopeful it will not be much longer than another month or two (barring any more Complicated). (WITH THE ARRIVAL OF MORE “COMPLICATED,” THIS MIGHT BECOME DECEMBER OR MORE LIKELY JANUARY.)
  10. Thank you for your patience. (THANK YOU.)

  1. So excited to see there is a third book to come. I just finished the first two, having picked them up this late summer. The world you have created is thrilling and the characters are flawed, complex, and alive in my imagination. Keep at it and don’t give up! Many thanks for your tales and I look forward to reading more.


    1. Thank you! I appreciate this very much and am so glad you’re enjoying the books, and the characters especially. Hopefully I’ll be able to get the third out in December…not sure of the exact date, but I’m working on it!


  2. Just finished The Darkest Midnight…..Thank you for the story. Truly enjoyed the book.


    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for letting me know—it means a lot, especially coming today as I’m working to finish the much-delayed next book.

      (I know better now than to make promises as to publication dates, but I’m trying and hoping for late February. *knock on wood, fingers crossed, etc.* 🙂)
