Never, ever, ever, ever

This is what I feel like right now.  I am a lot... and I am trying to write the Wife, but I don't want to give you guys a half-assed piece of writing as the last book in something I've had such a blast writing. So I'm going to take my time to make sure I do it right.

I have Crohn's disease and I've been diagnosed since 2003. I've enjoyed remission since 2006, but right now I am having a nasty flare- my worst in years. And severe abdominal pain is not conducive to writing hot sex. I'm sure you'll agree. When you are in pain, sex is probably the furthest thing from your mind. What I can write, currently, is caring and nurturing in a good relationship, because I can honestly say that I have the most amazing and understanding husband. But then, he's been on this Crohn's journey with me since the beginning and knows my limitations and doesn't try to push me. He's so supportive. So if in 6-9 months, I have a book about an incredibly patient and supportive hero, know that he was my inspiration.

All that said, I'm hoping that the writing Gods will be kind to me and let me get this last installment to you by September 13th at the latest. Just because I'm having trouble writing doesn't mean that I'm not getting anything down. I'm at about 6,000 words, even though I was hoping to be closer to 14,000 by now.

Good news is that after weeks and weeks of trying to convince Amazon to price match the Professor with Smashwords and Barnes and Noble, it is FINALLY free in the US and Canada:

Better news is that I've been working on Drama Free 2003 and it should be out sometime next month, too!

Dance season starts soon for my youngest, so I'll be spending too much time at the dance studio and in hotel ballrooms. Look out for a flurry of new material!

  1. Oh, i'm so sorry you are dealing with that kind of pain! my friend's husband was diagnosed with Crohn's after weeks in the hospital. He had withered away to nothing and is just now regaining his strength months later. You are one tough lady! Added The Professor to my to reads :)
