At the moment I'm sticking with them. The owner is trying to get things into order again, so I hope that everything will work out. This has not been an easy decision for me to make. Many of my author friends, whom I greatly respect, have left or are in the process of leaving Silver. I totally understand and respect their decision to leave. It's not an easy choice to make. Silver was once a great publishing house (hopefully it will be again) to be a part of, but with its uncertain future, it's certainly understandable why people leave. I still don't know if I'm doing the right thing by staying. I have the "Damned if I do...Damned if I don't" feeling about it, so who knows if sticking with them is the right thing to do. I guess only time will tell.
In saying this, I don't know when I'll be continuing my Men of Charlestown, Kissed by an Immortal or Sons of Aphrodite series. I hope to do so soon because the characters are driving me crazy, but I'm waiting it out right now.
Because of the stress of it all, I haven't been able to write like I should. Up until the past few weeks it's been short of a miracle to get any story started at all. I've tried, but I couldn't. Writer's block and and stress from everything took a toll on my creative juices, but thankfully, I've been able to work through it and now I'm almost finished with my book. I don't know where I'm going to submit it yet, but I'm going to branch out to other houses and see where I stand. Wish me luck.
Personally, things have been going pretty good. My niece, Snow White has been excelling in her first year of Kindergarten. My husband and I are doing well and my grandmother has been feeling better lately...so all in all, I can't complain.
Thanks for being patient with me. I'll try and do better at keeping y'all informed of what's going on with me. Have a great weekend!
