Long story short: We had a miscarriage a few days before Christmas--and then I caught the flu. After trying for another child since 2010, this loss hit me hard and in a way I hadn't quite anticipated. As you can imagine, getting into my office to write and edit romance was basically the last thing I wanted to do while trying to recover from that double whammy (while also juggling the usual special needs issues that arise in this house from time to time.)
The Emma serial was written in 2013 so it's complete and just needs some editing to get it ready to go. I expect to release Parts Three and Four by the first week of February.
