My Aunt Linda

Posting may be sporadic from me this week. My Aunt lost her battle with cancer over the weekend. My other Aunt already put up a nice little post with some pictures, so I'll link there. She was someone I was close to, so obviously that's the focus this week. She's been called home, and we need to be there to see her off properly.

I'm going to write a proper piece on my personal blog at some point after I've processed my feelings, but it felt right to put something up on here. My Aunt Linda was, after all, very supportive of my writing. She'd begged me on several occasions to "next time write something without vampires." They were too scary for her. Unfortunately, it seems like I was too slow.

Once I get this next book out (Fates' Motif: the first one without vampires, mind you), it's going to be dedicated to her with the tag line: "Hopefully there's a good techie with wings up there to help convert this to an h-book. You know, for her Angel Reader." Because I'm silly like that. Also, there has to be books in heaven, right? It just wouldn't be heaven for me without books...

For the record: heavenly formatted books have no typos, no plot holes, and no horrible cliches. It is known.

*hugs* Really sorry to hear that, Matt. I hope you're coping okay. :(
And of course they have books in heaven.

Thanks. The hard part is probably going to be later this week when everyone gets together to say good bye. It's both the best and worst part of such things.

I'm so very sorry for your loss, Matt. The saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes it helps, so I hope it helps all of you to remember her. Let yourself grieve; we will all still be here when you can get back to blogging.

A heaven without books is no Heaven to me.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. *hug*
