I've been trying to find the correct wording for this blog posting for more than a week. Like many authors, I tend to be a private person and prefer to keep my family out of my writing life out of respect for their privacy. Unfortunately, my private life has begun to leak into the rest of my life.
As you may have noticed on my blog and twitter, I have been very quiet recently. A family emergency has occurred and will be taking up a great deal of my time and attention during the near term. I wish I could say that everything is going to be fine and work out, but then it wouldn't be an emergency if I could say that.
For the next few weeks to couple of months, I will be focused on my family, with my writing deadlines falling second in the line of priority. If you're expecting an email from me, I will try to catch up on them this weekend.
I am sorry if you feel neglected for a while. I haven't forgotten about my dear readers. I have already begun to miss our interaction, but for now, I need to step away and focus on my family.
I will pop in when I can. Thanks for your patience during these next few weeks. I greatly appreciate it.
