Slight Delay

First, I would like to apologize for not having Part II of the Epilogue to The Blackmailed Bride posted already.

As those of you who follow me on twitter or on Facebook might know, since the beginning of the year, my husband has been struggling with having both a blood clot in his arm and one in his shoulder/chest. This, of course, has resulted in several surgeries, an extended stay in ICU, and basically mass chaos at our house while we wait for these clots to dissolve.

We discovered earlier this week that my husband is being sent to the Medical University here in SC (about 3+ hours away from our home), so my life has been in a bit of an uproar, trying to pack enough clothes for an indefinite period of time, making sure to spend plenty of time with my four-year-old daughter who will be staying behind with my sister while we are gone, and basically trying to make sure I have everything done before we leave.

So, I heartily apologize for not having the second part of the epilogue posted yet. That is my priority either as the last thing I do when I go to bed tonight, or the first bit of business in the morning. Fortunately, the hard work is already completed; I just have to do a proof before I post it.

But to all my fans/readers, I apologize for being off my game.

But I would ask that you keep my husband and family in your thoughts and prayers. From what I understand, the surgery he is having done is very risky and rare (only about 15 of them done a year in the whole country). And while I am not a person that usually vents all the "woe-is-me" moments in my life online, I am hoping that you will all join me in believing for the best!

And Part II of the Epilogue to follow...promise =)

((Also, I understand that some members of the LIH bookclub have already received their copies of Engaging the Earl. While I mentioned it in the "Dear Author" letter, I just want to reiterate that I welcome ALL feedback. You can reach me through the various methods on the "Contact Me" page at the top of the screen, or you can send an email to

Mandy, I had no idea your husband was doing so poorly. I'll keep him in my prayers, and I do hope things have calmed down a bit since you first posted this.

If you have time, email me. We'd like to interview you on regency blog sometime next month when Engaging an Earl releases.
