After my surgery last week I am feeling much better. I am only having small pains and some soreness now. It is so much better than the pain that was driving me insane in the previous months. Now I am rooting for my mother. She just had surgery for an illness that killed another family member earlier this year. I’ll have to get checked for it myself soon. My battle is not over. Yet if my characters can bear the pain and danger and still find happiness then so can I. I haven’t met my quota of finishing the publication of the entire Black Tree series this year. Slowly but surely I will continue publication over the next year. There are four more books to go and then I can start publishing a new series. I’m excited about that. In the meantime I will do more to engage with my health. In my family it is impossible to take for granted. Only my stories are allowed to take me down completely. But my health is worth fighting for, especially when I never asked for any of this.
Thank you for your patience.
