Change

Change…

 

That word…that one little word with so much meaning behind it. Some people say they hate change. Hate the whole concept of it. But truly, is there any way to avoid it? Doesn’t change happen daily? From small nuances not noticed to full blown “Oh hell, what just happened to my life?” I’m not sure I really thought much of this word until over the last year when “change” fell more into the latter category.

 

I write this blog with heartfelt gratitude as it is directed to those readers and friends who have contacted me about the release of After the Storm which is the third book in the Chambers of the Heart series. Thank you so much for your interest in the series! Book three will be published however not in the timing noted on Amazon or other websites. Many may have noticed the difference in the style of the cover for It Pours versus When It Raynes. This was the initial phase of my writing change. As of late, I have been fortunate to have gotten my original covers back. I had such a difficult time writing through the disappointment I had in the changes that led to the loss of my original covers. I must admit to a strong writer’s block due to this. Over this time frame, my publisher and I have decided to put a hold on our future endeavors. In fact, in the very near future and during this transition When It Raynes and It Pours will not be available for purchase. There will be some growing pain. However, my hopes are with this change there will be better growth in my creativity with the series.

 

As if this was not a big enough change, life decided to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve experienced losses and gains. All of which took its own bite out of my little fingers pecking away on a keyboard in the silence of the night as they once had done. To be completely honest with you, I feared I had lost the ability to mold words from my thoughts into a story worth telling. Through the encouragement of friends, I wrote a short story for a soon to be published anthology by Sapphire Publishing. I’m very happy to share that “Ten Hours” was chosen to be included. This I believe is the first step in accepting the effects of change.

 

So, yes there has been change. Yes, there has been sacrifice which came with it. But there has also been growth! Much growth that I hope will only lead to positive effects on my creativity. It’s time to dust off those keys! Thank you to all of you who have checked in. Stay tuned. I’m hoping for an exciting ride.

  1. Hi there! Will you stay with Saphire publishing or it that part of your changes? Either way, both my wife and I enjoy your work very much and will follow your progress no matter who publishes it. Good luck with your writer’s block and hope you can enjoy the success of your third book enough to free you from The stresses of future writings. Take care!

    • Hi

      I’ve honestly no plans right now on what I will do publishing wise. I’m really not sure if a publisher would want to invest in a part published series or not. You know? So I may have to get the books out myself. I’m sort of taking it one day at a time. This past year was such a whirlwind with it all that I’ve found little time to breath. Thank you so very much for your comments! They lift me more than I can possibly say! I’m so happy you and your wife enjoy my writing. I do hope you like the short story when it is published in the anthology. It is called “Ten Hours”. Have a wonderful day and thank you again.

      • Thank you for the heads up on the anthology. I will be on the look out for it. By the way, I was looking for your third book on Amazon and they have a message that it’s temporarily unavailable. Any thoughts?

    • Hi Liz,

      I am sorry but it will not. There has been a change in the storyline. I do so apologize for the delay and hope you will stick with me through the transition of bringing light to Sam’s story, “When There’s No Rayne”, instead of the original “After the Storm”.

  2. Hi Ms Cain! I recently started reading your books and could not put them down. You are extremely gifted and I am inspired by your work. Being raised in a conservative, catholic family was and is still difficult. I can certainly relate to your characters. Please continue to write, as you are clearly talented. I anxiously await your new books!! Your previous publishing company does not realize your worth.

    • Hi Kate,

      Thank you very much for not only stopping by my site but for your sweet comments. I’m so happy you enjoyed the books! I remember how important it was when I started writing the series to create realistic characters with depth. I wanted those reading the story to feel as if the characters were people they shared common experiences with or perhaps someone they could meet walking down the street. I can’t tell you how encouraging your comments are. They mean a great deal to me. So, truly, thank you for them!

  4. Hi Mirtha,

    Thank you very much. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day as well. I am going to attempt to attach the link to the anthology that will have “Ten Hours” included in it. Keep your fingers crossed the link works. I do think you will enjoy the book. I’m so lucky to be included among such talented authors!
