First off, I want to say thanks to everyone who offered kind words on my last post. You guys are all so nice. You made me smile. Janey, you made me laugh out loud. :) To all of you, I send my appreciation. You guys are the best!
In truth, this is a decision that I have made for many reasons. And I have thought this through a GREAT deal. And I feel good about it. That's why I made the photo essay with the silly/creepy clowns and ship sailing off to the Gray Havens. (Lord of the Rings inside joke. Why yes, I am a nerd. :)
Anyway, I want you all to know these things.
1. No way on earth am I giving up writing. No way. Or my dreams of publication. Absolutely not. I am just turning my focus now to book two.
2. I do not set Miss Midas aside with any feelings of, "This book sucked." On the contrary, I still love it. A lot. I just feel that I need to put it away for a while. And, who knows, I just might come back to it one day.
3. I feel good. Better than I have in a while. :)
