What a month it has been!
Release update, Jan furreebies and more
I’m writing this edition of The Writer Gal Letter on my phone because my laptop battery is dead. No song of the edition this week, unless you count my frustrated and exhausted screams as music.
What can I say, Postmate? It’s been a rough start to an already troubling year. The move, it is never ending. And I am constantly so tired stringing words together feels alien to me. On top of it all, I finally pushed myself to a very unhealthy place and ended up with neck nerve compression (from hauling all the boxes) gastritis and hyperacidity from popping pills so I could set up the house in the middle of my period, a sinusitis attack and debilitating body pain with nausea and slight fainting. If this sounds like a Woe is Me rant, you’re not wrong in your assessment.
For the first time, in my life, Postmate I’m so tired I can barely see straight.
The doctors (yes I had to to see two of them) have strongly advised me to rest and recuperate and not even think of working till my body is up to it. It feels alien too. Resting.
But it is what I need.
A Profoundly Sad Announcement
Which brings me to an announcement I never thought I would have to make in professional career.
I won’t be appearing in Shades of Love as a contributing author. While I have some words down on Vows - Drake and Anya’s epilogue novella that was my piece for this diverse romance anthology, unfortunately I had to stop work on it because of all the health concerns. You have no idea how painful it is to say this, because I ALWAYS manage to scrape through to the deadline. But this time, I could not.
And for that, I’m profoundly sorry.
Vows will definitely be releasing along with a bunch of other Ruthless Billionaires stuff but not this week, in Shades of Love.
I am absolutely heartbroken at this update and I really hope you don’t think too harshly of me for having to choose my own health at this, frankly, harrowing time of my life. 😞
But it is not all gloom and doom in the Aarti-verse. Read on for freebies from cherished authors :)
