Bring Me To Life

I have been going through a tough time in my personal life, and as a result I took some time off from writing. I went through a difficult divorce, some health problems that required surgery and worked to rebuild my life as a result of those challenges. I am still dealing with the lingering effects of these events, but after some time in hybernation, I am coming to life again as a writer.

I have sent out some submissions. I am reviewing the current guidelines of several publishers as I look for homes for several pieces sitting on my hard drive. And I am starting to reread old works-in-progress to see if I can resume writing them.

Along the lines of finding publishers, I have come to hear through the grapevine that my romance publisher Venus Press is running into some kind of difficulty. They have not responded to my submissions from last fall and, from the chit chat I've heard, I am not the only one getting a big dose of silence from them. So I am looking for a new home for my orphaned Kinsmen series.

As I figure out what I am doing and get back into the groove, I'll be posting my progress here once more.
