A few people have asked why I’ve missed posting new installments of RATTLETRAP. Right when the action is about to go up a notch, too. Space battle! Penetrative sex! Good stuff.
There will be a new installment next week after I get back from Cleveland. Jedd and Ussim’s story is a fun one and I’m excited about returning to them. Writing is great for escape, too!
As for reasons… my reason for being in Cleveland is emotionally draining. My oldest son Mike the Conqueror and his wife had a baby, and the situation isn’t good. Mother’s water broke at 16 weeks and she was on bed rest. The baby grew without amniotic fluid, which meant he was born—last month, at 27 weeks—with underdeveloped lungs. He’s on a ventilator and both lungs have collapsed numerous times. We’re not sure he’s going to make it but he’s fighting hard and is getting the very best medical care. He’s just so very tiny! He weighed just over a pound when born and now weighs nearly three pounds, but he’s still one very small human being.
Maybe you’ve noticed by now that I’m a private person, which is why I haven’t talked much about this outside of a few friends. I still won’t be all over Facebook or Twitter, but anyone who reads my blog or my work counts as a friend. If you read this and you have prayers to give for my little grandson, they would be appreciated.
