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

    1. 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.
