All of my fiction will be gone from the dusty backs of the ebook shelves as of 2/1/15. I’ll still offer free queer fiction on Wattpad & fanfiction on AO3 when the mood strikes my fancy; and when I’m not in too much physical pain.
As much as I hate to see my efforts to become a working author go to waste, I have neither the time nor the energy to maintain my smile in the face of failure. I’m seriously ill, and my condition is worsening, partially due to work-related stress. It’s best to wipe the slate clean so that I don’t dwell on the past. If I leave my books up for sale, I’ll obsess over ways to market them in order to earn more money (I come from a one-income household), and then the cycle will begin anew.
Though I will miss my job (I already do, a month ahead of schedule), I can’t ignore my deteriorating health any longer. Thank you to the few special people who have supported me on this journey. I am in tears thinking of how much I’ll miss you.
The three remaining Author/Artist Spotlight interviews will air by the end of February. After that, I’ll move on. It’s time for me to focus on my family and my fading health, rather than fight an uphill battle to earn a coveted spot on the bestseller lists. I’ll still write whenever I can, but it will only be for pleasure. Perhaps one day, if I ever recover from my various health problems, I’ll try again. They say the third time’s the charm…
Thank you for your time, your company, and your encouragement. My good memories of the wonderful, talented, creative people I’ve met in the past year will undoubtedly comfort me when I’m jonesin’ for the past.
