Love is Complicated

Book heart

Wow! Here it is February and I haven’t written a blog since the New Year. I’m so sorry. Life has been kind of exciting around here, to the point where I had to move my deadline for “Trapped In Shadow” back to March. Still not sure of the exact release date, but I will let you know as it gets closer.

For those of you who are signed up for my newsletter, you’ve seen pictures of my granddaughter, Amilya. She was born a preemie and had a hard time coming into the world. She and I bonded while she was still in the womb and I delight in every second we have together. So when my son said he was taking his family to live in Florida, I was heartbroken.

I had been doing so well with my writing, too. Up to Chapter 14 in “Trapped” and planning four or five more. Now however, I am grieving the loss and break up of my family and have a hard time even thinking of what words to put on the paper. I’m afraid it may take me a couple of weeks to get my mojo back.

You probably think that’s funny since I’m writing this blog without a problem. But the truth is, writing this blog helps me get some of my emotions out so I can move on. I keep reminding myself that the world is different from when I was a child. We have Facetime and Skype now. I may not be able to hold Amilya, but chances are with some effort on my part she won’t forget me.

So bear with me. I will get my act together soon and the next and possibly last Shadow Walker book will come your way. I know you’ll love Hugh and Stacey’s story.

  1. It is far from being easy when your family grows up and they start going their separate ways. They take a part of your heart with them but they also leave a part of their heart with you. You can only take it one day at a time. Gradually a new life rhythm settles in and your grow from this. Hugs and kisses to keep you going for as long as you need them. Linda

    • Thank you so much, Linda. I know this is part of the process of being a parent. It’ll all work out and I will get back to writing. I appreciate your kind words. It helps to know people understand.

  2. Hi Caryn,
    I’m so sorry about your son moving all the way to Florida. I sympathize with you. My husband and I moved from Long Island to VA when we retired about 10 years ago and I think our children are still having a problem with it. they do come to visit and we do Google Hang Out but you’re right, it’s not the same. Go slow and take care.
