So, many have been emailing and asking me: "Hey, what's going on with you?"
First, let me dispell some rumors:
1) I have not moved out of the country.
2) I have not taken a vow of silence.
3) And I have not been abducted by aliens (thanks Marissa for your bit of humor)
But, now for some truths:
2011 was not the best of years for me, my family or my writing. I will confirm that I did lose my husband in a car accident and I have moved from California to be closer to my family for my son's sake.
In essence, the struggles of 2011 left me a different person: one jaded, confused, hurt, and struggling.
Over the past several months I've tried to force myself, in vain, to battle my personal demons and turn back to a place that I've called home: writing.
As many of you know, 'Full Moon' is the last in Lacey's story and it's been the hardest for me, thus far, to put to paper. Not only am I battling "the block", but it's the ending of an era for me. It's the ending of characters that have gotten me through some really tough times in the past few years and, honestly, I'm sad to see them go.
So, I've taken it on slowly: too slowly. I've lingered on plot twists and turns. I've lingered and agonized over characters. I've battled the death of a few beloved characters and contemplated witchcraft resurrection. (Which, I haven't completely veto'd at this point).
I know some have worried that 'Full Moon' wouldn't be released. However, I assure you that I am working on it and my original plan of a spin off is still in the works.
I greatly appreciate all of you that have stuck by me through this process. I have taken down my primary website for now and my primary email address has changed. I will continue to use this blog to post tidbits and updates. If you are interested in contacting me, please use: Jordan_Deen@yahoo.com.
I will be organizing a 'relaunch' in order to properly celebrate "Half Moon" and ring in the new year right. If you are interested in being a part (or help plan) this yet to be organized event, please email me.
Again, I truly thank all of you for standing by me. I wish all of you Happy New Year and hope this year brings amazing things for you and me both.
