WRITING UPDATE – COVID-19 & 2020!


Dear Readers,

First and foremost – no, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! 😊 And I’m so sorry for the lack of posts & updates on social media these past few months. In a nutshell, 2020 sucks! πŸ˜… Who would’ve ever imagined any of this? 

But to make a long story short…

As you all know, I was hoping to complete book #3 in Pantheon of Dragons in 2020, followed by Blood Harvest, book #12 in the Blood Curse Series, hopefully in the same year. Then Covid-19 hit, and it was an absolute chaotic whirlwind: kids suddenly home from college (including my disabled son who lost ALL his services & activities overnight), family & friends affected & quarantined (including two back-to-back 14-day quarantines in my own household), getting sick myself (not with Covid, thank goodness!) while adapting to this strange new world. To put it bluntly, I felt like I was catapulted back to Little House on the Prairie: cook, clean, wash, sanitize, look after family… a new reality, dawn to dusk. Needless to say, there’s nothing like being faced with the immediate health and well being of one’s loved ones to reorder one’s priorities. As dedicated as I am to my work – and most especially to all of you! – I had to refocus my days and my energy on the immediate challenges in front of me and just getting through the madness. 

And there went my “New Release” schedule!

That said, I am slowly getting back into the swing of things – well, at least we have established a somewhat new normal – and I wanted to reach out to all of you with this update: 2020 has been replaced with 2021. It is now my goal to try and hit the first quarter of next year, and in doing so, I may reverse the order of those two releases – we will see how each continues to progress. Just rest assured, I have not forgotten you, and I have not forgotten the books! 😊 Most of all, thank you for your patience, support, and all the emails & messages – I greatly appreciate each one!

Finally, for those of you asking if I have anything else for you to read in the meantime, I would humbly re-post my FULL LIST of published books and remind you there are 13 released in the Blood Curse Series (including 2 short-stories), 2 released in Pantheon of Dragons, and Dragons Realm Saga is now complete, including the original & sequel: All are listed in reading order below. πŸ’—

Thank you so much for your kindness & understanding, and once again, apologies for the belated update!

Please stay safe…

Tessa

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about the illnesses that have hit your family! But, I'm also so glad to hear that all is as well as can be in these strange times! I can't wait to read the next books you throw our way (no matter how long it takes)! More time to think & write, means new ideas and new twists for the story and I'm (im)patiently waiting to read what you've come up with! Stay safe & well.

  6. I'm so sorry to hear about all that your family is going thru. And as much as I missed seeing you on social media, family always comes first. I am glad to hear things are getting somewhat back to a "new normal". I so miss being in the "worlds" of your books, but take the time you need for what is most important. Always looking forward to your next amazing book, whenever that may be. Until then, I'm looking forward to a re-read of the Blood Curse series first. Take me away to Dark Moon Vale....

  7. I know how hard it is when your life is turned upside down! I have been lucky that my special needs son didn't lose any of his benefits, but I've spent 6 months arguing with insurance about his coverage! I'm looking forward to your new books, and will still be here when you're done. stay healthy, and don't sweat the small stuff. Your fans/readers are waiting patiently!
