Updates, and some story news.

Hey everyone!

So over the last 2 months a lot of stuff has happened. My mom passed away in the middle of March. I was her full time care provider. So when I wasn't writing I was taking care of her. Now I would have been doing it regardless if I had been getting paid or not, however I was being paid to take care of her full time. It was my only income. My mom died because of an unknown aneurysm that burst at the back of her brain. It was unexpected, we had thought she would be alive for another 5 years at least even with the COPD she had just be diagnosed with the month before.

When she passed away that set off a whole new set of problems, that I had to deal with immediately. I had to clear out her apartment, and then once I was done with that, I had to find a new job. Which I was able to do, not as quickly as I would have hoped, but I did find one. I work at a children's home, working with at risk youth now. It doesn't pay nearly as well as taking care of my mother did, I lost about half of my income. During all of this I'm having to grieve, and process this massive loss. My mother and I were close, we had similar interest and she was from time to time a beta reader and editor for me. All of this has happened in the last 2 months.

So because I haven't had the time, or the creative energy to really work on anything. I am postponing the Frank Malone series, and the Transpunzel series, until I can get refocused and I have the time to do the work that needs to be done to make them the best they can be. I am pretty upset about having to delay these awesome projects because they are going to be awesome. I might be able to get to TransPunzel in the next couple of months. I just have to see where I am emotionally and creatively. I hope you can all understand why I have to take a step back for the next few months as I work through this process of grief and loss.

If you would like to help, you can always become a patron on Patreon. I don't update it nearly as much as I should be, but I am hoping to get started on doing that in the next couple of months.  Meanwhile you can read The Lisa Goodwin Series as it's 1st season is currently done and episodes are coming out every monday.

I hope you all are having an awesome week.
