It's been a long time between blogs. In fact it has been six months!
Time flies when you are having fun they say. Well, I can say some of the time that passed me by was certainly fun but unfortunately not all of it was.
Summer had cliched J fall in love. Summer lovin, had me a blast... but like all good things it had to come to an end.
I did the scandalous thing and fell in love at first sight with the wrong man, an unavailable man. Although he could well have been the love of my life, and me his, it could not be. So I had to fall out of love whether I wanted to or not.
Then came Autumn and with that came my illness. A mystery virus that knocked me about for over two months and caused me to be unable to do any writing, editing or working due to 'post-viral' arthritis and carpel tunnel. Luckily during this time I also rekindled a romance with a compatible man. The man I believe is my missing piece. He is my best friend and is the most considerate man I know. Our friendship and passion is like no other I've had and he has been by my side as my friend for some time. We've had our ups and downs, dated other people and fell in love again... but we now have a relationship that I didn't think I could find. That I thought only existed in my imagination. So Sleeping Beauty was awakened. At least I had a birthday during this time to help... though getting older isn't so good!
I'm now almost completely well, the virus has taken its toll on me and my energy levels etc aren't what they were before but I'm on the mend and writing! Yes, I am currently in rewriting and editing phase and feeling great about working again after a long break. Writers block... no, perhaps heart broken and lost... but my muse is back.
On the author front, my publisher has had a change. Tim, the man who has given me such a wonderful opportunity, has unfortunatly had to relinquish Night Publishing and has resigned me with his new, more 'traditional' company - Taylor Street Books. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Tim and Kathleen. My third release under Joanne Ellis, Folk Law is currently in the hands of an editor and will be my first release under Taylor Street.
Finally, I will be soon returning to my Writers I know Wednesday reviews and shout-0uts once I finished Mockingjay and the two new Cassandra Clare books! I have a long list and so many to read but hope to begin this blog again soon.
That's all for now.
