Sorry for the long length between updates. A lot has happened between this and other updates. The most important stuff will be shared here first. That relates to the Templar Series updates.
I have not had a chance to get Templar: Resonance edited yet. I will get on that when I can find a good stopping point but I cannot make any promises on when that will happen. Until I can get free time, I cannot promise a release date. I assure you that it and following novels in Shaman songs and Jena’s Blood Legacy are done, but things are happening in my personal life right now that need my attention. you will see below
I still need to finish the Black September saga as that is a good pause for Shaman Songs and Jena’s Blood legacy. Finishing Black September will allow me to work on getting edits on the books already finish as well as working on the Ascendant series. Everything is in one universe so there is a timeline that everything runs in. that is why I want some Ascendant books to be released in line with the later Templar books.
Enough about the plans about the series that seem to turn into long term plans. Let me explain what has been delaying everything in my personal life.
My wife needed knee surgery near the end of May, she is still in the hospital from it and will continue to be for quite some time. it was not an easy surgery and there were issues with it. this is the fourth surgery on that knee and her seventh total knee surgery. as such, both of us have been going through a lot of separation anxiety in the past couple of weeks as I have to stay home and take care of the animals and she is stuck in the hospital. normally, a person in our position would be able to take our children and go see her daily except I have seizures and should not be driving. that makes me housebound. because of my seizures, the grandparents have been taking care of our children as well in case something happens to me. i see them and talk to them, just like i talk to my wife but i am still stuck to my house and whatever is in walking distance which is a lot of houses.
I don’t think this would be a big deal but I have been going through HRT for the past 3 months. What is HRT, you ask? It is Hormone Replacement Therapy. I liken it to Puberty 2.0. my first puberty wasn’t as bad as it is this time. Maybe my memory is foggy, a symptom of the seizures, or maybe it is because this time around it is fresh but it has been a chore. they just increased the Estradiol so I feel extra different now. more like myself but more like 35 going on 16 now. reining in long forgotten knee jerk reactions is tiresome as well as the constant craving for protein and milk and sleep. the body is changing and i am changing again. it makes concentrating on anything a chore.
Recently, a person in our lives that was going to help with the life changes after surgery moved out. we thought it was going to be a problem but we saw that she had been a negative influence on our lives for a while and a lot of positive changes had come from it. until the surgery, our lives had become a lot easier to manage and the children quickly learned from our positive behaviors and modeling as opposed to behaviors she presented before.
One thing to note, she had posted online a one sided account of everything going on in the house. I am sure it was meant to be hurtful as well as self serving. I wont state everything, but I will say these rebuttals; lying to our faces throughout the whole event was also hurtful. heel stomping our phone and saying you will pay for the insurance then not is also a low blow. destroying my case for my 3 traditions tarot deck, and not replacing it is cruel. Don’t forget, you have also run both of my cars into cars and stationary objects through the years, and left me high and dry recently when I had a life threatening allergic reaction and no working vehicle to get to the hospital. You have distorted events on a public forum without giving anyone on this side an option to input their side of the story; just to make you look like an angel. I will admit, no one is perfect, maybe hurtful things were said, maybe things were misinterpreted, that happens all the time with everyone. That said, have a good life. If we never see each other again for the next several lifetimes, it will be too soon.
