I’d originally planned to have Shadowed Blade out in March–one a year has been my goal with The Kit Colbana series from the beginning, with the occasional short story when my schedule allowed.
Unfortunately, 2015 was a bad year.
For those who don’t want to hear reasonings…long story short, I have to push back the release date. Hopefully, I can get SB out in late April. That’s the goal. That’s it, I’m sorry and I’m trying.
For those who feel better having explanations…like I said, 2015 was a bad year. If you need more than that, I had health problems that ended up requiring surgery and tests, starting in June and not being resolved–or at least answered until January of this year. Said health problems involved several different body systems, required ridiculous amounts of tests and more meds than I really want to talk about. (I won’t say I’m fine, but I’m as good as I can be and no, it’s nothing that’s going to kill me. It just makes me miserable on occasion.)
However, between health issues, stress issues from those health issues, workloads from deadline projects and other deadlines related to a second job I had to pick up due to money issues… (Hey, I’m a writer, most of us are the proverbial broke artist) I haven’t been able to work as much as I need to get the next Kit book done on time as anticipated.
Yes, I’m sorry. I know this explanation will not satisffy some-I’ve already gotten demanding emails. However, I’m only human and like most humans, I can only do so much.
I appreciate your patience and I’ll do the best I can to get it out to you as quickly as I can.
