Hello Sinister Gardeners!
As you can well see, this is not an update in the regularly scheduled Garden of Malice storyline. In fact, I have an announcement to make in regards to that story but fear not. I am going to continue on with the story and it will have a definite end. I promise that it will not end on this cliffhanger. That said, I do need to explain how things will be for the next couple of months and why.
If you follow me on any of my social media, you might be aware that I have released two books through Amazon this year which you can purchase here and here if you are so inclined. I have also accomplished this despite a major move to a new city and establishing myself there as well as starting two new jobs. All of this has been exhausting but I have tried my best to avoid putting the site and the story on hiatus as much as possible. Things were calmer for a while but since I just released a second novella that was written in the span of a month, I’m way more behind and tired than I counted on. My job situation was supposed to be a little more stable but as of late, it has gone a bit off the rails on me too. My schedule has been a bit more difficult to predict and that has made it very hard to work around. As such, this has made it very hard to find the energy to write extra updates for the site on top of everything. That said, I really don’t want to put the site on hiatus for a third time this year so I came up with a bit of a idea.
Starting this week, I want to do what I call an Intermission. These would be something like the old advertisements that you would get during old radio shows but instead of actual products, I thought it would be fun to come up with things that I could pretend would sponsor this story. I have ideas on what I can do that will make this fun and that way, the site would still be updated and it would give me time to get both the Christmas Ghost story and the next chapters of Garden of Malice figured out. And yes, I do have a plan for a more involved ghost story this year so I will be working on that during the intermission time.
So to sum up, I am not putting the site on hiatus but the story will be on hold for a little while and should resume after the new year. In the meantime, I am hoping that you will enjoy a little bit of fun advertisements with me and make sure to stay tuned for the ghost story this year throughout December. As always, thank you for your patience as I sort my life out and I hope you will continue along the tales of Courtland County.
All the best and happy reading!
