Well. Maybe I Should Come Clean

I gaze upon Rites of Ascension III and I feel sad and guilty. I've been letting me down; I've been letting you down; I've been letting Jurel down.
I haven't given up, I haven't stopped. I've had to take an unplanned hiatus. 
I've been ill. Very ill. I'm surprised I'm still here to write this blog. 
I am recuperating, albeit slowly. I've had some setbacks but finally after more than a year, the victories are outnumbering the losses. With the help of my lovely Cori and my two shining children, I have been able to fight my way back to the point where I can sit and write this. It's not much but it's a start.
I have every intention of returning to Jurel's story. I want to see the end of his story.
I just hope some of you are patient enough to bear with me a little longer.
I want to thank all of you who have not lost faith. I want to thank all the doctors who have helped me see this side of the debilitating and deadly disease that I almost succumbed to. I want to most thank my wife, my guardian angel, Cori, for being there at my side every agonizing step of the way encouraging me ever onward.

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Now...about Jurel...


  1. I'm really glad you survived. Take as long as you need. I'll definitely be buying the book whenever it releases.

    And, to be honest, other authors take far longer between books for far less serious reasons. Good luck in your fight.

  2. Thank you very much for the update. I'm glad to hear that you are recuperating. Keep us all update on your recovery and progress. I for one am very much looking forward to hearing the end of Jurel's story and will wait patiently for it to come out.

  3. I'm working slowly on it. A bit at a time. This convalescence is killing me.
    Maybe not the best turn of phrase?
    Tell you what (possible spoiler alert?): Metana turns out to be an important factor. A balance, if you will.

  4. Any-Update?




  5. Will we get an update at all ?


  6. Are you still writing or ?


  7. Any update on this? I know things are difficult for you but as fans I know we are all curious on your progress?

  8. Hope you're feeling better!
