What’s going on with me and TTS

Hey guys,

I know I said I’d blog a lot more in the new year but now the new year is the old year and we’re getting ready for another new year and no blogs from me. Well 2013 hasn’t exactly been a great year for me. Especially the last half of it. I know that many of you that follow my Facebook page probably already know that my dad passed away in August. If not, you’re reading it for the first time. My mother and I were swamped till October with paperwork when we thought we had everything taken care of.

Naturally, all of this has been very stressful for my mom and she’s been having seizure like episodes. The doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong with her. She’s been doing this for the last two years or so. The only logical conclusion they can come to is stress as they can’t find anything on any of the tests they’ve done.

We thought these would be over after my dad passed. After all, he was very sick and mean because of it and my mother wasn’t handling it well at all. Three weeks ago, she had another one. Because of that I’ve had to cancel my plans to attend Thrillerfest in the summer and naturally that has made me depressed as well as all of this going on.

All of you know that I’m a workhorse. I love very much what I do. I’ve been posting what I can on time when I can and trying to let people know when things are going to be late. Some things are VERY late and for some very important people. That doesn’t mean that they’re not going to be done. You know how much book blogging means to me and how much each and every one of you mean to me. Whether you’re a reader, an author, a fellow blogger, a book tour coordinator or even a publicist friend. You all gave me purpose when I felt I was totally worthless.

I just need some time. If you’re wondering where something is, please ask me. I’m honestly unorganized as all get out and it’s because my mind has been all over the place. I’m also not very happy with this layout for the site. I liked my old layout because it gave the content center stage and your books were all over the place for readers to see. I’m looking for a way to do that again. If the site doesn’t look presentable and your material isn’t getting maximum exposure then I feel the site is slightly worthless. Maybe that’s me being hard on myself but I’ve always been hard on myself.

Just please be patient with me. I’m not snubbing you on purpose. I have a whole list of books I’ve read and haven’t reviewed yet. With all this going on I’m having a really hard time sorting my feelings out about anything. I want the words to be right and I want to give you the effort you deserve. All of the stuff I’ve read is great and I’m seriously looking forward to the books in my TBR pile.

Comments are welcome. I love you all!
