Snail Pace

As another year ends I wanted to write a last blog post for 2016. In a way it’s an apology. Recently, I’ve been asked by a couple of people when the sequel to the Book of Prophecy will be out and I have to confess I don’t know. For this I’m sorry. I’m hoping for the end of spring, but there is no indication that this could be the case, it might be much later.
The Heart of Nature had been scheduled for the latter half of this year, but I’ve not been able to meet that goal. This has mainly been to misjudging the time it would take to get ready. With my health struggles I have to be very careful with how much I do in my life. Anything that takes effort/energy has to be careful regulated or I get very ill. This means with writing I have to only do small bits when I can. Once upon a time I could do a couple of hours a day of slow editing or reading, but now that is often much less. The work gets done, but it just takes a long time.
            As mentioned in the previous post, I have been working on another novel, as I really wanted to get that re-written by the end of the year. I’m glad I achieved this a few weeks ago, but perhaps I should have been working on The Heart of Nature. I am working on it now, well, reading The Book of Prophecy again, in prep for a read through of my latest edit of The Heart of Nature. I’m confident that in time the story will get published, and it will be worth the wait, but once again, I’m sorry that it takes so long.
            2017 is a totally unknown entity at this point, with very little scheduled for book related things like events etc. The main goal will be the publication of The Heart of Nature and I’m excited for when I do finally have it ready for people to read.
