Because, I am.
Because I just got my head above water again.
I’ve been on a journey. An important one. A super big one. But it got harder than we ever thought it would. And then, a few months ago, it became impossible.
We are still adopting our little boy. Things are on a different track than they were, but we’re sorting through what will be the best for all the members of our family.
And during all this, my mom died unexpectedly in her sleep. This crisis on top of the ongoing one put us underwater. There was so little keeping us going.
But I’m here now. Back. Hopefully able to talk to fans, and write books without dying from the pressure of even getting a few paragraphs down. And so, looking at all I missed talking about, to catch up the blog, here is what happened:
My trilogy for kids is being released by Spellbound River Press! Jinnie Wishmaker has already been re-released. Marcus Mender will come out in the fall. And (now that I can finish it!) Elektra Chaos will be out next spring!
I wrote another book this spring, a standalone romance called The Billionaire’s Ballet. It’s a fun story, inspired by Sabrina, and a light summer read. Learn more about it at www.deannaroy.com/ballet
My Forever series hit a ridiculous number of books sold. It’s just awe-inspiring to me to see these books go. You guys write me every day about how the story impacted you, and your notes truly kept me going. The response to the video on the series was also just tremendous, and we’re at something crazy like 800,000 views on Facebook. Thank you.
Here’s to being back in the world again, not just head down and slogging through immeasurable struggle.
