Good news, bad news and an opportunity

Hi everyone!

It’s been pretty tricky, but I’m happy to say that The Legend of Nariko: The Goddess Prophecy (book 2 of The Legend of Nariko series) is now fully edited. However, an idea came to me, a significant change in the ending for Book 2 but still maintaining the story of the series to remain the same. I’m working with my editors on how best to incorporate it. Thankfully I don’t believe it will cause a significant delay in publishing. I am aiming for a publishing date of September 15th for both paperback and eBook. I am super excited about how the story finishes and how it sets up the continuing series.

However, an unfortunate situation has occurred. Due to the current circumstances, some fairly drastic changes are coming to my life. Truth be told I am not sure how this will affect my day to day life. The only thing I’m certain of is that it will be difficult for the next couple of months. I don’t think it will affect my ability to publish my book by when I want to but it has put me in a rather stressful situation. I do want to preface though, I think I will be ok! I don’t want to make anyone panic, just wanted to share that some difficult times are coming for me. I don’t think it’ll affect my plans for this blog but I will keep you all posted.

The situation has also presented me with an opportunity I hadn’t had before. For a long time, I had wanted to make some big changes to my life. I wanted to move my life in a direction that was focused more on what I considered important. Even though this isn’t how I anticipated this change, it’s happening whether I like it or not. I might as well try and make the best of it but my focus will always be my writing and book series.

Hopefully this all goes smoothly.

Thanks for sticking with me in these troubling times. 😊

P.S: Sorry for the cryptic messaging, I’m not sure how much I can disclose as I’ve never been in this situation before. I can say though it has nothing to do with the book series so that’s safe. I will make a followup post later on explaining the situation. I don’t think it’s too bad but I honestly don’t really know.
