Earlier in the year, I thought I might be able to get back into the swing of writing and publishing on a regular basis, but then I took time off to finish getting some much needed stuff done around my home a couple months ago. Balancing everything became difficult, especially with how often I was asked to dog-sit for my mom.
And then my mom got diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of the month.
It’s been…hard, stressful, depressing, and scary. I’m trying to keep her spirits up and remind her that until we have all the test results back, worrying will do nothing but make her stressed out. She and I both have to give up a lot in the next 6-12 months while she goes through treatment.
At first, I dreaded the email and posts that I would have to write saying I was taking a break yet again, but I can’t do that this time around. Even though it’d be better for my mental health to take a break, I will need the extra income from this business to make up for all the days I have to miss from work.
I won’t be writing or publishing as often as I have when things were going well for me, but I’ll still be doing it. My releases will take longer, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve been feeling disconnected from some of my work for a long time. When I first started, the best kinks to make money in were PI, Dubcon, and Barely Legal, and I did well in those. But now as I’ve grown older and social and political times have changed, my heart isn’t into it anymore.
Whenever I think of stories to write, it’s usually based on “I think this idea is sexy” but now it’s more about “I want my readers to really feel this”. That usually comes in the form of longer stories which I want to move towards. Shorter stories are faster to put out, but neither I nor the market are really into that anymore.
Anyway, that’s enough of me rambling on about the various things going on with me. Now time for the latest releases:
New Series: Wedding Night Ritual
New Series: Naughty Sleepovers
