All Good Things

Hello all,

I’ve been on a little hiatus lately. It’s been a long, hectic year, both personally and professionally, and so it’s a hiatus that was sorely needed. I’ve published a novel, taken care of my mom, and, with the help of my spunky sidekick Louis, have lost about forty pounds.

Louis the Tapeworm

The crazy has begun to settle a bit and so I’ll be getting back to writing very soon. My next book, The Storm, has been edited and is waiting for me to dig in. There is much I want to do to this book and I suspect these changes shall take some time but if I had to guess I’d say the book will be out just before summer. This book is really good and I hope you all enjoy it.

The Dark Layer continues to do well and I’ve gotten some very good feedback on it! Many say that they never would have predicted the ending. If one thing can be said about my books, it’s that they’re different.

Like me.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great holiday and I look forward to chatting with everyone in the upcoming new year!

P.S. Louis the Tapeworm is totally fictitious, in case anyone was taking me seriously.


Giving Thanks

This is a delayed post (I clearly suck at blogging) but I wanted to get this out there on the site before too much more time has passed.

This post is for all the folks that have supported me and my work this year.

This has been a tough year both professionally and personally. My mom was in the hospital for the first half of the year and is now in a home for people with Alzheimer’s, so spending time with her has become a full-time job.

Amongst other things.

Anyway, this post is about the good people. The ones that aren’t full of lip service. Thank you to everyone that has bought or sampled one of my books, has told a friend about them, blogged about them, tweeted about them, or just complimented them. It all helps.

In this big world of disappointments, it’s easy to forget that not everyone sucks.

My sincerest thanks and I hope to keep writing for you in the future.

Gina
