I haven't felt much like writing lately. In fact, I've had mindbogglingly persistent writer's block since mid-February (which is partly why you all haven't heard a peep out of me in months - though quite possibly a pathetic whimper from the shadows, if you were listening hard enough.)
Trapped within that horrible limbo of wanting to write but not being able to actually put any useful words down on the page, I have - as usual - done way too much overthinking (and you may also have noticed, completely remade my website in my creative delirium - because having writer's block tends to make me insane with boredom...)
Reasons and excuses aside, I've been waging a heated battle with my depression lately and have by way of my preferred method of stubborn emotional conflict resolution - via the cathartic sledgehammer of total change - decided to tackle my mental block. So, I'm just going to do what I've been itching to do for the longest time:
TAKE IT ALL DOWN - TEAR IT TO PIECES - FIX THAT SHIT - MAKE IT BETTER - TRY AGAIN
because, in the end, that's what you do. You learn, you do better, you move on to the next. If I can't put down some fresh new wordage I might as well do some demo and salvage on what I HAVE gotten down. At the very least, it'll make me feel a hell of a lot better.
In simpler, non-Everyn-brain-hopping terms:
I will be removing ALL of my currently published work from sale on ALL channels starting May 31. This includes The Crow Series (Books 1 - 4), all published episodes of Wicked Red's Rapturous Dawn Serial, and the almost forgotten short story, Imaginary Self.
And then what?
~ I have already been working on revised and expanded Second Editions of the current books in The Crow Series (uh huh, there's more than there was before *whistles innocently*)
~ There is a new EVENTS section on the website where you will find the re-release dates (as I set them) for the books, as well as a few other things that pop up along the way.
~ The new Second Editions will be released in ebook, paperback, hardcover and audiobook formats provided I don't lose all my marbles first trying to get it all done. HA! But if I can do it, I will. You've been warned.
I will also be re-releasing my Wicked Red Serials soon, but I'll delve deeper into that project in a separate post! *wink wink*
In the meantime, feel free to wander my newly fashioned website. I've still got lots of other bitty-bits and baubles to add and tweak as I go, but let me know if you come across anything weird or wonky... cause I'm bored and I need something to entertain me. Wait, I mean on the website! So I can fix the website...
Aaaaanyway, thanks for reading!
Really. Thank You.
