Last week was a difficult week for me. Annie’s funeral was on Thursday, then I got home from that to find out about the piracy of my books. (Yes, the person apologized for it, and yes, I do believe they’re sorry and won’t do it again.)
No, not a good day, for sure. I’m not really ready to talk about the funeral yet, although I do want to write a post about it sooner rather than later. Annie was a wonderful woman, and the funeral home was literally overflowing by several hundred people. I’m…still processing. And anyone who’s followed me for a while knows that grief is an extremely difficult thing for me to process.
I feel like I’m losing my mind right now.
The fibro flare I’m in isn’t helping either. And, oh joy, let’s add insomnia to the list of symptoms. The past three nights, I haven’t been able to get to sleep until after 3 a.m. and this is killing me. I don’t mind the occasional intentional staying up late on the weekend, like for a play party or whatever, but this consistent insomnia is killing me. Yes, I am normally a night owl. However, I’m still waking up at my normal time. Sometimes I could get a couple more hours sleep, sometimes not, and this erratic sleep schedule is hell on a fibromyalgic.
On the other hand, at least I’m making good, steady progress on book four in my Triple Trouble series. (Working title: Triple Dog Dare.) The bridge book is turned in and my tentative release date from Siren is March 26th, so yay! 🙂 I’m hoping to have book 4 turned in by the end of this month. I’m going to have four releases in the span of about seven weeks. Wow!!!
To celebrate this, I’m giving away an e-reader next month on my newsletter group, so make sure you sign up to stay posted on that.
If you’re a member of the list, you can also access the calendar where I’m listing release dates and other events:
Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you’d sign and share the petition I created to get Goodreads to remove the ability to add e-book files to book listings to help prevent file piracy:
And don’t forget to visit my Facebook page and click the Like button. (I prefer, due to Facebook’s restrictions on the number of friends, that you like my page rather than friend my profile. Plus, my profile will clog your feed with pictures and miscellaneous stuff, whereas I keep my page mostly focused on my writing and related information.) Yes, I know it says Lesli Richardson. Facebook won’t let me change the name because I have over 100 followers. *sigh* But that is my official Tymber Dalton Facebook page.
