Scaling Back

Life is catching up with me again and I need to make adjustments. Isn’t it strange how that happens? You get settled into a certain routine (I love routine), you’re comfortable with that routine (I love routine), the routine works for you (I love routine), then life happens and you have to readjust and change the routine (I hate changing routine).

So . . . the adjustment I must make involves this blog. I have a new contract with my publisher in the works. Now, usually, I don’t say anything about a contract until I’ve signed it but things look like it’s pretty much a done deal. If I’m wrong and it falls through, oh well. But since part of the contract is going to be that I deliver a finished manuscript of my next novel, Darlington, by September 1 I need to get cracking. And that means I have a time crunch. And that means I need to scale back even further on this blog. So from now on I’ll only be blogging “occasionally.” What does that mean? I have no idea. I guess it means when I feel like it or when there’s news I need to pass along or something that’s really heavy on my mind I just need to share or something funny that happened or . . . you get the picture.

I hate to do it, really I do, but September 1 is closing in quickly and I need the extra time in the mornings to write.

Please keep in touch, though. I’ll miss your regular comments. And I know I don’t say it enough but thanks for all the comments and prayers.

    Mike, I’ll miss your regular blog but it’s a small price for your readers to pay when we have another novel to look forward to. Congrats and can’t wait to read the next one.

    You are a legend Mike! Hope you don’t have to scale back reading ‘B is for Burton’ for occasional comic relief πŸ˜‰ Is Darlington going to be about that giant snake/croc hybrid? God bless heaps.


  7. Tracy McFeaters

    I am going to miss your blog, it’s part of MY routine πŸ™‚ But I understand. I am so glad to hear that there’s a new novel in the works. I’ll be praying.
