Okay so it looks like I fell off the planet. Promise - I'm still here. The last four years have been ... hard. There's no other word for it. Everything is fine. I'm fine, but I've been the caregiver of my mom who has Dementia. Between her needs, work, etc I seem to have lost control of my time. I am still writing and am trying hard to get back to my blog.

In case you weren't aware Phaze and HSWF which where under the Mundania Umbrella have closed. I was smart enough to get my titles back before all this happened. I'm happy to say the three books I sold to HSWF have been picked up by Melange Books and are available through their Satin Books imprint. I have even sold a new title to them called Magical Quest due out in 2022

I have also been lucky enough to find a publisher for my Vespian Way series. I'm now with Blushing Books under the name of Bethany Drake. I have five titles out with them right now and am close to submitting two more. There's Desire's Destiny, Desire's Duty and Desire's Promise. Then there is two in my werewolf series, Tears of the Queen and Legend of the Tears. I have just finished the rough draft of the third book in the series and have plans for a fourth one the moment I submit it.

I'll probably still be sporadic here on the blog. Unless I win the lottery and can hire someone to help me I can't avoid it, but know I'm still here still working hard in the background and am hoping to do better at keeping my blog alive.

I know I've still been quiet but I have been plugging away. I'm excited to say I have found a home for my desire series plus I have a new book coming out through Blushing Books. The new book is called Tears of the Queen and is a urban fantasy.

A Portrait in Time will be re-released soon. I have the new cover and still waiting for the release date. I'm so happy to know I could find another home for it. When I read through the book after all these years I was pleasantly surprised. I did a good job considering it was my first.

I know I mentioned about me caring for my mom but I didn't mention that she has dementia. One of the reasons why I'll continue to be sporadic in posting. Over all Mom is good, she is cognizant and can do a lot by herself. But I've been busy making sure I have everything ready for when she can't make decisions on her own. 

I hope to get back to hosting authors and advising new writers but right now I'm living day by day trying to get everything back in order so I can fet things back to normal.
