So, it’s been awhile since I really did a thorough update, peeps. I have done some on my Patreon, and my newsletter, but not across the board. So here goes.
For those who don’t know, long story short I found a new doctor and turns out, well, my asthma went from moderate to uncontrolled and severe. I have been in an oxygen deficit for a long time. Chances are, over a year. And it’s been exacerbating my MCAS, which in turn has been exacerbating my asthma. Woohoo, right?
That’s been impacting my energy, my focus, and the past few months it’s just been rough. I am being treated and am on three new medications which are definitely helping, but I am going to have to take it slowly. I probably should have been in the hospital the last couple weeks before seeing my new doctor. She was surprised that I was still on my feet.
Add to that, sales have been down and KU is no longer working for me. Going wide is scary because it’s tough there too, but I can’t depend on KU for a viable income now. If I wrote steamy romance, I would probably stay in KU. I really do wish that I could write more romance (and I’m actually trying) because it’s a much more lucrative market.
So it’s been a rough couple of years emotionally and physically and, with publishing of all kinds hit hard, it’s not been all that comfortable financially. I’m just digging in, trying to find a way to expand my audience, and trying to build my health up again. Don’t mind me today. I’m just a little down today but then again, I have been exhausted for quite awhile and am just starting to pull out of it.
In other things, the cats are fine, Sam is doing well, and life continues.
