The time to move on

The devastation of my cancer diagnosis has settled in as much as it can. And as I sit today, bone thin and wrapped in an electric blanket that’s dialed up to eleven, I realize it’s time to stop crying–for now–and carry on.

Today was the first day I awoke and the path was clear. I am still breathing. There is still creative work to be done. Time to stop sulking. I must make the most of the time I have, what little is left.

So here I am. I was halfway through the major revision of Book Three in the Guardians of Salt Creek series when I started to feel ill and had to stop. Today, I began working on it again. It feels good.

On that note, I will also reveal the cover for the first time here today.

I know, I know. I’m breaking a lot of author rules by posting the cover reveal without any accompanying marketing buzz or even an Amazon copy ready for preorder. Honestly? Don’t care. This is about finishing the series for the people who have read it and loved it. And it’s about me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. I want to show it to you. I want you to know I’m working hard, through adversity, to get the book in your hands. Plus, it’s a beautiful cover. So here it is. enjoy.
