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.

 This is a little off topic but there are times when you need to vent. I think I've explained that my mom has dementia. It is an ugly awful decease that I hate. I watch my mom fade away a little more every day. Her dementia is different than the classic case. Does it effect her memory? Yes. Yet she knows who I am. I get a lot of I don't know and have learned that she doesn't always understand what we're saying and I have to make sure I use words she can understand.

Being a writer helps right now because I know all about word choice. It just breaks my heart to see her this way.

 Here's a quick update. I have another book coming out. This one is under Barbara Donlon Bradley and through Melange. It's a sequel to A quest for Love which was my very first futuristic romance.

Magical Quest is the working title and it's due out next year!

The Vespian Way:

Well. my publisher changed the covers on my books to make them look uniform. Aren't they pretty?

 So I fell off the face of the planet again. Sorry, Life got in the way but time is my friend again and I hope to make a better effort to show up her more often. First I need to update this page, then start posting again. Bear with me while I get everything up to date.
