Recently, I did a post regarding Haters. Link
. Today, I am going to discuss something along those lines but to me far more troubling. Indie Authors attacking other Indie Authors. Maybe together we can figure out why this is happening.
I enjoy being an Independent Author. The community, relationships I have built, assistance I have given and been granted in return, is nothing short of amazing. That is what this is; a community of driven individuals that are willing to work hard, take risks, and pour their heart and soul into each book they write. They also help whenever anyone asks them to, however they can.
My book would never have been written without the help I received from my fellow Indies, in the forms of betas, cover, editing and content suggestions, and consistent messages of faith that yes, I can do this, even when my doubts were overwhelming.
Well hey there, it’s certainly been a while hasn’t it. Our apologizes for being absent lately, we’ve had a few family issues and we’ve just been pretty busy over the past few weeks.
This is CK coming at ya in case you’re wondering which sister is writing this post, but then again I guess all you would need to do is look at the CK category just below the post title to find that out. Any-who on to my post topic.
Coming back, it’s not just us on str spat announcing our return to the blogging universe, it is also about my return to the blogging universe on my other blog.
The other day I received an email from a fellow blogger and friend who was wondering if my extended absence had something to do with my grandmother’s passing. I told him that it was partially because of my extended absence; however the other half has to do with new blog post ideas, and new material revolving around Jenny Mac.
Granted in December I said that I only needed a short hiatus but shortly after beginning my break from blogging, I realized that I need more than a short break from blogging. I wanted to come back with new ideas for the blog, new material from Jenny Mac, and most importantly I want to come back with a more serious attitude about my work and my writing.
I feel like I’m getting there, but I’m going to need some more time away from the old blog. I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the past month and I think that I will be coming back either in mid February, or the beginning of March.
So I will see you all soon, my apologies for being gone for so long, but rest-assured that I will be back and better than ever.
Last night I got a message over Facebook that I wasn’t expecting to receive. My brother wanted to talk to my sister and I over Skype; because unfortunately our phones are down. I had a feeling that something was wrong, but you can never fully prepare yourself for this kind of news.
Last night my brother informed my sister and I that our grandmother wasn’t going to make it through the night. She had a massive heart attack yesterday morning, apparently she had an infection and I’m guessing that the infection was the cause of it. It seems so crazy because she had just had a quadruple bypass a couple of months ago.
The last time I was able to talk to her she sounded like her old self and I am so grateful that I have that memory of my last conversation with her sounding so good.
I’m going to miss her a lot, the photo above was taken a few years ago on my twentieth birthday. I’ve been thinking about my childhood a lot last night and today, she always spoiled me as a kid. I would go up to Colorado Springs to visit her for a week during spring break and summer break, we always had a lot of fun.
She was always there for the family at the drop of a hat whenever there was a problem or trouble of some kind, I’ll always be grateful towards her for that. She helped me through a lot of family issues and would be the one I could go to if I needed to.
Nanna I’m going to miss you a lot and I’ll always reminisce on the fun times that we had together. Thank you for making my childhood great.
