I'm Back

Sorry I've out of touch for so long. My back has been trying my resolve for the past two months and is just getting back to some semblance of painlessness.

Anyway, while I've been recouping, I've been tossing around an idea for a new book. This one would be a story of what I've been through for the last year fighting to rebuild my body and life. I'd write it as a fiction, but with the facts of my journey.

What do you think? It may be cathartic for me to get it all out of myself emotionally and mentally, but I'm not sure how people would react to it. Or should that matter?

Give me your feedback.

Onto other matters.

I'm nearly done with Double Vision being reformatted for CreateSpace, the Amazon company who is publishing my books now that I fired my old publisher for non-payment. If you've been having a hard time finding the Eyes of Garnet trilogy online, fear not, they'll be up shortly.

And what about this weather? We're bracing for yet another blockbuster snowstorm this week. The Weather Channel is running out of adjectives to describe how bad it will be. They're on "colossal" now. How much worse can it get? And what if this becomes the norm? I do enjoy watching the videos clips on the crazy people trying to get to work on icy roads at the same speed they think they do when it's dry. Twisted, I know.

Let me know about my idea for a new book. Yay or nay?

I think it is a wonderful idea. It may help someone else who gets diagnosed with cancer. Perley is reading Despite Them right now! Been thinking of you a lot lately. Hope you are doing well.

Whew~ I finally get to sit down and respond to this post! I wholeheartedly agree with Jericho8 that you should write about your story. I was going to say the same thing, that it will not only be cathartic for you but may be comforting and useful to someone else in the same boat who feels that nobody understands what they are feeling and going through. Hope you are feeling better too and not too cold with all the snow. xoxoxox

It seems unanimous. Write the book about my ordeal. I will do it. How helpful it will be to someone else, I'm not sure, but it will get it off my chest. Still get weepy thinking about that 7 weeks in the hospital wondering if I'd wake up the next morning or not, and sometimes wishing I wouldn't.
Thanks for all the emails supporting the idea as well.
