This week I got hit hard by life. Several big personal things happened. I'm okay and my family is okay. We've been dealing with a difficult situation for the last few months and while we've tried to be cooperative and helpful, the other side has not and now we're going to have to stop being nice and start protecting ourselves and engaging professional help. It's discouraging, but I am stubborn and the people opposing us have severely misunderstood my level of resolve.
I also spent some time helping a friend with her Victim Impact Statement. Her partner was killed in a hit and run and going over the impact on herself and her children was heart-wrenching. I'm pleased with the statement, which lays bare the damage that has been done to her family, hopefully in a way that will bring some justice and closure.
Next week, I"m going to concentrate on finishing up Third Eye Open so that it can go for editing and then I can release all three short stories in their final form both individually and as a group.
I've been talking to the folks at Soul Mate Publishing about changing the title of Deadly Potential and it's been a little intimidating to watch the latest scandal over similar titles unfold. The title I'd like to use is being used by other authors but our books are all very different.
I'm hoping that next week goes better and maybe life will surprise me by being better than I'm expecting.
