I know most of you aren't aware - some here are, I'm sure - that I'm the writer of The Unaccompanied Soul and Chancing Fate. My twitter account for "Twi-fandom" was closed a few months ago, mostly because of continuous harsh emails, dm's, and pm's about updating, etc, and I only have an account now that was meant for my published work, though I do tweet about Twi-related issues on it. I figured posting here would get a better word-spread of what's been going on and why there's been no updates to either story.

Some already know, but I've been very sick awhile now. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis, which I stated in an author's note last updates, but in May, I had gallbladder surgery and continued to have problems after. Months of testing, and I mean all kinds of testing, I ended up having to have a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago yesterday. However, that hasn't finished the issue. Today, I have a gastroscopy and in 4-6 weeks, I'll be having a colonoscopy, because they believe I have crohn's disease, and there has also come to light that it's a high possibility during my hysterectomy the doctor nicked my bladder. Believe me, I know how much that all is, and it's been nothing but a horror story for me. I've been unable to update, had to push back the release of my first novel several months, not been able to be the mommy that I'm used to being, and it's been heartbreaking and painful in many ways.

I just wanted everyone to know that despite what's going on in my RL, I have every intention of completing both stories. I know that was a big question for many, and the answer is yes, they'll be finished. I just need some time on my end to heal and recuperate. Please understand, and if you could pass the word on, I'd be so very grateful.

Thank you so much for all the support you've shown and the positivity you've brought to my life. My stories wouldn't be anything without you and neither would I.

Much love to you all!
