WoW. I’ve just received the rudest email to end all emails from a reader.
“Are fuckin kidding me release ur fuckin book or put a fuckin accurate release date up dipshit!!!!!!!!!”
TO explain a little, she asked if the February 28th, 2015 release date on Goodreads for The Demon Who Loved Me was still accurate. I replied explaining: “Unfortunately, due to some difficulties with some medications I was prescribed, no. I am behind schedule. I’ll make sure Goodreads gets updated tomorrow. I’m sorry if this disappoints you. I hope to have it out in the next few months.”
Let me establish something here. My health is more important than writing and releasing a book for you to read. I appreciate each and every reader I have. I promise I do. If I could give every one of you a hug, I would. And I’m sorry that I had some medical issues (at least one severe) that required a merry-go-round for MONTHS of different medications that all had some bad reaction or whatever. Hell, I’m STILL having problems with my medications. I get that set back ALL of my writing projects and I’M SORRY. Really, really sorry. But as much as I love my readers, bloggers, characters and stories… sometimes I have to love myself and my family a little more.
I’m a mother of two little girls who are EVERYTHING to me. If there’s an archery tournament, school function, or whatever, I’m there. I make sure to spend time with them every chance I get because life is too short and I don’t want them to think of me as “that woman who always sat behind a computer writing away but never spent any time with us”.
I’m so mad right now that I’d like to throw my computer out of the second story window and tell everyone that there won’t be ANY MORE BOOKS.
I like to think I respect everyone. Readers, bloggers, other authors. Please show me a little respect in return. I’m checking out for a few days. I’ll be back… whenever.
