I’m taking a much-needed break from writing to reevaluate the direction of my writing career. The industry has forced writers to pump out a book a month to make up for declining book sales. I just can’t work that way, and I’ve tried every way around that model possible to make ends meet and my work has suffered as a result.
In the Meantime, is just not going as well as I’d like and I don’t like forcing a storyline. I know this is a disappointment to you but trust when I say, it’s better this way. I don’t like adding my name to something I know isn’t up to my own standards and don’t have the passion I once had to complete this story. This is a result of being spread too thin creatively. I’m taking a step back from writing and letting that spark build again before writing something I can call my own.

I’m taking a sabbatical and I’ll return to writing renewed at a later date.
