I have a book release today. And I'm very excited about it. I love the 'Secrets of Neverwood' Anthology, I love my characters in 'The Growing Season', and I love the two writers I wrote the anthology with. G.B.Lindsey and Libby Drew are both people of prodigious talent, and I'm honored to have my name listed with theirs. So, yes, I'm excited. I'm also sad.
I'm sad because yesterday I moved my Dad, who I love more than anything on this earth, into assisted living for memory care and Alzheimer's. Over the last year, I've been his full time caregiver. And I've watched this wonderful, kind, brilliant man slowly fade away. I promised him I would keep him home as long as I could, and I did. But when he looked at me today, and I saw fear in his eyes... God. I may never be able to erase that from my mind.
I'm happy about the anthology release. Very happy. I believe all three novella's tell compelling stories about love, and loss, and growth. But today, it's tempered with a heavy heart.
The first book in the Anthology is called 'One Door Closes'. It seems particularly appropriate to me right now. Man, I hope somewhere a window opened.
