What’s up with the last Reed Brothers book?

So… what’s up with the last Reed Brothers book?  It’s not ready yet.  I’m sorry.  I’d hoped it would be out and you’d all be loving it by now.  But I’ve had a couple of setbacks. I hate disappointing anyone, so I thought I’d take a minute to explain.

About two years ago, I had a pretty big change in my life when I left my day job.  There hasn’t really been a time in my adult life when I haven’t worked at least a 40 hour a week job, until then.  I decided to write full time.  But I soon realized that my brain quit writing after a certain period of time.  In other words, I could only write so many words per day, no matter how much free time I had.  So, I decided to go back to school.  I always wanted a degree in deaf studies (it fits, right?) so I went back to school.  I quickly realized though that it took a lot out of me doing school work.  Where I used to work all day and then write at night, I found it was much more difficult to LEARN all day and then write at night, so my production schedule slowed down dramatically. Yet, that was okay, because I was still writing, even if at a slower pace.

Then some other personal stuff happened and OMG! life happened.  And the book is late.  Now, I know that I didn’t have a schedule set up so it’s technically not late, but I feel like it’s late, because people are asking me about it all the time. And I felt so bad about it being late that I kind of disappeared off social media to avoid having to answer the question about when it would be done.  I don’t want to disappear anymore, so I’m here posting an update. It’s not done yet.

I think part of the problem is that it’s the last Reed Brothers book, and I’m suffering from some separation anxiety.  I don’t want to leave the Reed Brothers’ world.  So, I’ve decided I’m not going to. You’re going to see more of them, and so will I.  Whew!  I feel better just having said that.  It’s like saying goodbye to a group of friends. And I’m not going to do it.

So, that’s my status update!  I’m sorry I’ve kept you waiting longer than I thought.
