The good news is that The Rake’s Vow is done and uploaded, so that will go out March 18.
However, I need to push back the release date for The Reclusive Earl. The new date will be May 7.
I was planning to finish it this week and get it to my editing team, but I have a kid who threw up tonight, and I made the mistake of eating some of his pretzels earlier today. (Something I greatly regret at the moment because it probably means I’ll be throwing up in a couple of days.) I have another kid who also feels sick. I have four kids total, and these things usually run the course through the whole house. Needless to say I’m not going to get much of anything done for a couple of weeks.
Then in mid-March, I might have jury duty. I need to make sure the schedule is clear for that. I’ve never been on a jury before. I wasn’t called in last time I got the letter, but you never know if this will be the time you are.
All of this together puts me in a very tight position. The good news is I’m about two chapters and an epilogue away from finishing the book. I want to make sure I give my editing team enough time to go over the book, so I really need to push back when I plan to have the first draft done.
I’m sorry for doing this, but it was either push the date back or rush the ending. The last thing I want to do is rush the ending because that won’t be fair to you guys. I want to make the book the best story it can be.
