I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for all of your encouragement and support! I was dreading telling you Champions about the book delays because it felt like I was letting you down, but your outpouring of emails and comments on the blog, discord, and my facebook pages reminded me just how special our community is, and how blessed I am to have some of the best readers ever. I can’t even put into words how much your support and concern for my health means to me. (There’s been some ugly crying as I’ve been reading your kind and heartfelt messages.)
And to reassure you all, I really am doing okay. Out of all the health stuff and issues I’m facing, I was most concerned about how you all would take the delay. As a reader, I’ve also experienced the disappointment that comes with an author delaying a book release and I never wanted to delay something so far out like this as a result. I can’t tell you how much happier I’ve been since I told you all, and your messages have come poring in. (In a funny twist, I’ve been able to write more of Retha #4 the past two days than the previous week–I think it’s the sheer relief.)
Thank you so much, Champions, for everything.
