I Just Made a VERY Hard Decision....
Updated: May 28, 2019
I have decided not to finish the Oracle of Delphi series.
There. I just came right out and said it.
I have been on a very long hiatus (since October 2018) due to the demands of my work life and other personal matters. Over this time, I have had the chance to think about why I started writing and if I even wanted to continue doing it. It's not profitable for me and never has been. It's a time and financial parasite, yet, I love it. And I think I always will.
That being said, I can't continue to lie to myself. I haven't been interested in the young adult genre for years now. Not to read it. Not to write it. I don't have anything against it. It's just not for me anymore. It's been six years since the last OOD book came out and I have to stop with the foolery. I'm not going to finish it. I'm just...not.
Trust me, this feels like a failure and I feel like shit for doing it. Not finishing something that I wanted to finish so badly, makes me sad. Not just for me, but for those readers who have continued to buy the Oracle of Delphi books even when I have long since given up on them. I'm sorry about that, you guys. I really am. I'm sorry for all of those readers and bloggers who have supported the series for so long. I love all of you and will never ever forget it. NEVER.
I've taken all of the books off sale and removed them from my site. Yes, I'm bleeding all over the place here. I feel sick. You guys don't know how much I hate this. I. FUCKING. HATE. THIS. But it had to happen for me to move on. It was like an anchor holding me down and now that I'm free of it, maybe I can finally swim to shore. That was a whack ass analogy, but I think you get my point.
However, there is some good news. The Djinn Order and Wesley Werewolves shall move forward as planned as I feel it's time to bring my hiatus to an end. It's hard to come back to writing after being away for so long, but I'm back even if it's in a smaller capacity. I'm also getting ready to upgrade to a new website and new domain. It's LONG overdue. Seriously. Blogger? Yeah right. Stop it already, Diantha.
So...many changes to come, plus did you hear that I'm hosting a signing here in Washington D.C. called Imaginarium? I am (*grins hard*) and I think it's going to be amazing. Might have found my new calling, people! Check us out at www.imaginariumbookfestival.com.
But that's all for now. I'll see you guys around...SOON. Love ya!
