Checking in to say that things are finally settling down into an even keel again here at Casa Jaken. Thank you to all of you who have continued to buy my books and support me in that way over this past year, and by spreading the word about how much you've enjoyed them to your friends. It's been an incredible help to me as I've been struggling through the financial insecurity and uncertainty of these past months due to the pandemic. Every single comment I've read or email I've received letting me know how my books have touched your lives has been treasured and lightened my spirits immensely. I can't tell you how much your support and encouragement have meant to me.

Now that I'm feeling more stable and focused once again, I'm planning to get back to conquering my writing goals. The first one of those is to finish the new book in the Sacred Guardian series. Poor Kaori and Hunter have been languishing for far too long waiting for me to finish the final polishing of their story and get it out there for all of you to read. I'm planning to get started on tackling that this afternoon and intend to have a finished book ready to publish in the very near future.

That being said, I think it would be in my best interests to start focusing on marketing the series once again, and hopefully picking up some new readers who might not have had an opportunity to read the earlier books yet. So look out for those notices as I will likely be planning some giveaways and other goodies as we move forward toward the publishing of book 4.

If you aren't familiar with the series, you can find out all about it on my website here: bit.ly/SGseries

Here is my latest promo graphic for the series to hopefully start getting you excited about it: :)

Happy New Year, everyone! Hoping you all got through the chaos and challenges of 2020 with a minimum of damage and are looking forward to getting a fresh start in the new year. I've been through my share of personal tragedy and challenges these past months, and am looking forward to the opportunity to take a breath and move forward again with my writing goals.

This is going to be a quick entry because the chaos has not yet settled down entirely for me. I just wanted to check in, let you know I'm okay, and that I hope to be interacting more with you in the coming months. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with all of you. I miss my online community. :)

Take care and stay safe. Much love to all!
