Some might say a blog is not a blog without comments, and while I do not agree, I opened comments as of July 2020, though registration to this site is required to leave a comment. This helps cut down on spam and the time required to monitor comments. Please keep in mind that I reserve the right to remove any comment that is snarky, mean-spirited, disparaging, or has nothing to do with the post.
And if you are ever curious about the reason behind lack of commenting in the past, or periods of inactivity on social media, here it is . . .
I adore readers—those who follow this blog and those who don't—and appreciate every second, minute, and hour we spend together in my books and online.
I devote many hours a week to writing, and what I have left is spent on my businesses, family, reading, other hobbies, and living a bit of life. Time is a precious commodity, and while I could wish that I had plenty of it to spare, I do not. I blog because I enjoy it, and because I hope to offer you some entertainment and extras between the stretches of book releases.
I am not a social person by nature. What time I do spend online with readers is all I am able to give—mentally, creatively, and emotionally. To pretend otherwise would be unfair to both you and me. Sometimes this means periods of absence while I recharge.
I have worked with some wonderful author assistants in the past, but their voice wasn't my own. I decided it was better to share only my voice with you sporadically rather than someone else's more often. I hope you agree.
You have my deepest appreciation for your understanding, and while I do have comments on the blog, you are always welcome to contact me with comments and questions. I respond to all non-spam emails as quickly as my schedule allows.
I find that the majority of the site visitors likely to comment on a blog post prefer to contact me directly, and I hope you will, too. Email is a little like exchanging letters, and I'm old-fashioned enough to enjoy those exchanges.
Your devoted author,
