So this post probably won't be a good one for a lot of you, but it's something I've been thinking about on and off for the last few months. October was a complete nightmare for me. Aside from being in the hospital over half of the month because of an infection with my catheter, I was having more issues with said catheter when I left the hospital and then lost power for a few days because of high winds from Hurricane Zeta. Anyway, these last few months have been entirely too much for me to deal with, which has severely impacted my desire to write. I'm having to cancel the pre-order for The Sins of Luther because it just won't be finished in time. When I reset the pre-order date to November, I hadn't expected to be in the hospital for as long as I was. I didn't expect them to want to do another surgery to fix the catheter. Shit happens and it was out of my control. In all honesty, I don't know when the book will release. I'll also be canceling the Rules of Bennett pre-order for now as well. I need some time away from the book world before I attempt to write anything else, but with that being said...
The Sins of Luther and the Rules of Bennett boxed set with the Moreno Forever book will be the last things I publish.
This doesn't come as an easy decision, but it's one that I've been thinking about for a while. It's to the point to where I have massive anxiety whenever I open my document and can't write anything at all. I don't like feeling this way. I'm at the same crossroads that I was at last year before I decided to create the Ember Michaels pen name but only this time, it's not something I can ignore or try to rectify with another pen name. I think I've just reached the end of the road with this career and that it's time for me to move on to something else. I'm sure this will be upsetting to some of you, but I can't keep pretending that Im fine when I'm not. I can't keep pretending to be excited about giving you new books when I'm not. I just can't keep pretending. I won't keep pretending.
I won't be taking down any of the books currently available, so you don't have to worry about anything disappearing from stores. There just won't be anything new published after The Sins of Luther and the Rules of Bennett boxed set is released. I'm sorry to be springing this on you guys but at this point in my life, I think this is the best decision. Thanks so much for all the support for the dark stories I've created and allowing me to have an outlet for the dark crevices of my mind. I really appreciate that a lot! When I have release dates for The Sins of Luther and the Rules of Bennett boxed set, I'll let you all know. They'll be live releases, so they won't be announced until I've uploaded them to Amazon. Until then, keep reading the other fantastic dark books out there and I'll see you around.
Until next time,
