Death, Editing and Birthdays, Oh My!

Lost? Don’t be. Find previous episodes here.

Hi Readers,

I’m sorry for not writing you. I promised to let a certain character have his say, and I didn’t. Last week I was a wreck. My cousin disappeared and was found dead three days later, shattering our family. May he rest in peace.

Standing by my cousin’s coffin, I wished I had reached out. Maybe if I had, he wouldn’t have he sought release at the end of a noose. That day, I lost my sister all over again. Grief stabbed me, shredding my heart.

I went through the motions until my eye caught on a copy of Curse Breaker: Enchanted. It offered a refuge, and I crawled between its pages. I took my anger out on it. 20,000 words fell to my delete button as I tightened and twisted the story highlighting its epicness.  Reediting Enchanted became the calm center as anger, guilt and blame threatened to rip my family apart.

When I started this journey, I had no fan base, but I do now, and I am grateful for your time and interest. It’s been a bumpy ride, but we’re taking it together. And knowing you’re just an email away, brightens my darkest moments.

To thank you for being there, I would love for you to read the first chapter of the ‘more epic’ version of Curse Breaker: Enchanted.  You can download the pdf HERE or read it on my website HERE.

If you could take a moment to read it and hit reply, it would mean the world to me. I hope you are as excited about this as I am. I know my sister is. She’s sending two back-to-back snowstorms to give me time to polish up the rest.

If you’ve already purchased a copy, don’t worry. Amazon will update your version with the new one when it updates on their servers. (My goal is April.)

In light of everything, the vote and character interview are postponed until April/May. As you can imagine, my characters are not happy about this. Next week’s newsletter should be an interesting one. I promised to let them say their piece.

Also in honor of my birthday (3/10), I have two more presents for you. Click the pictures below to access them:
