I know I've apologized for this before, so I apologize for apologizing again.
I know I tend to leave a lot of stories hanging. I either get bored, lose inspiration or just plain want to write something else. It's why I usually don't do serials. Many factors contribute to my low output and I'm not making excuses, but others post personal items here.
With one kid away to college, I have only one kid's schedule to write around now, so that helps. My job has changed to something that's murdering my soul and that it's something I don't want to do and not good at anyway (they dumped the systems that were being supported by 8 people on me and one other person, and we've received no training. I hope this job application pans out because I can't wait to hand the boss my resignation letter.) Our CIO makes Dilbert's pointy-haired boss look like a genius. No, seriously. My brother dying unexpectedly right after new years didn't help and neither is trying to settle his estate which for some reason fell on my shoulders.
That said, I'm almost finished with part 2 of Drag Queens. I've started Part 4 of The Ring. I'm almost done with part 1 of a new series that I'll have to re-name because somebody started a story with the title I had in mind. I'm 3/4 through a new stand alone. I've started Part 2 of Private Little War as well as Part 2 of Zoe. I'm trying to develop a sequel to The Changing Man and I'd love to do another Melissa Cooper story. I also want to do a final Eve story. And I haven't forgotten about doing Part 3 of The Model. I'm still trying to figure out how I want to handle the 3rd and final trilogy of Brain-Jacked. And I actually did forget about the Alex stories so I need to re-read those and see about doing another one. And I've started the process for my first ebook.
Yes, I've been a bad girl. But I'm not trying to be...
