I’ve recently been released from hospital after having to have my gallbladder removed last week. I’d been ill for months and it has been seriously getting in the way of my life. It’s a huge relief that the pain is now gone, that I can now begin the process of healing. I feel as if this process is taking place over a lot of different levels within my life.
I finally had the authorisation through for my second audiobook from my new distributing company ‘Findaway Voices’ who are based over in Ohio. It feels as if the second book was a constant uphill struggle. It was a very painful and difficult book to narrate. It has been a long editing process too and I’m extremely relieved to say goodbye to it and let it fly away on its own path.
At the beginning of this year I decided to take a year out of my life to give my journey back to the world. I wanted to place my story out there and allow others to glean what they may from it…love it, hate it, find inspiration or simply food for thought. I have done that now. The process is now complete. I won’t be one of those people who spends their lives pushing their work. I simply wanted to give it back and let it go free.
This being the case I think my time off is about done. I will occasionally throw things up on this blog when the urge takes me but I think that I will be withdrawing for the most part and rescinding my presence on Facebook etc. I really feel as if those platforms are pointless and hold no appeal to me…I have no desire to try and raise my voice above the din of the many empty voices that seek to fill the airwaves there. I don’t need to push my reality on anyone nor do I need validation.
It feels I have gone a full circle now. I just wish to go back to my life and live it.
I want to thank any of you who have travelled this journey with me over recent months and I promise to stop by occasionally. I tend to find I write more when I’m simply working things through in my mind for my own purposes than when I feel it may be time to stick another blog post up!
I still have lots to say… I simply plan to do it in my own time.
I will place both my books on free on 23rd and 24th of November and I will let you all know when the second audiobook is available to buy.
