More Waiting.

Things are… not great. But I’m in a holding pattern so we’ll see. Really, not much else I can say because I don’t know.

The hardest thing to do is focus on going forward. Life’s been rough. I mean, it feels like I’m trying to bail out a rowboat that’s built like a sieve. Luckily I have friends who I count as family and family who I count as friends. I shall hopefully get through this.

My first instinct at this point in my life is to say… no more. I’m tired. A lot of it has to do with the constant assault on my body and probably the feeling I’m being attacked by my own country. There are so many fights and man, I’ve weighed into a lot of them. I’m tired and kind of bruised.

Writing this week has taken a backseat which is not what I wanted to do. I’m fighting for words because I keep drifting. Not a good thing for me. Especially since I’m so good at keeping on track.

Except now there’s no track. But I need to find one.

I hope all of you are doing well. I’m not the best communicator of self. I know that. But if you’ve time, reach out to someone near you and say hey.  They might need to hear it.

    Sorry to hear you didn’t get good answers. I know it’s hard to stay positive and keep moving forward. I’m in my own health struggle at the moment but you’ve got a great support group so use them. I found out through this I had more friends than I realized. They are a great source of strength. I’m sending as many good vibes as I can find your way. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Rhys, sending you so much love & so many hugs.

    To my surprise & delight, I got to meet you at yaoicon in 2016 — it was the absolute highlight of my trip. I’ve read almost all of your books (and love them, thus the squee-ing and running around the table for hugs when I realized who you were 😁), & I’m grateful audiobooks are digital files these days, cuz I’d have worn out your books’ cassettes by now & had to buy new copies. You make my little geeky m/m heart happy with your bookstore owners who need to break in their Converse, murderous wingless draggonets who don’t know they’re supposed to be cowards, & ghost stories that make me pick up the pace & avert my eyes whenever I see a doll in an antique store window. Oh, and that military stretch of highway between L.A. & San Diego will never be the same for me.

    Just to say that when body, culture, & politics feel like enemies, please know there are those of us who do truly appreciate you & are passionately your literary & cultural supporters.

    And long distance hug-senders. 😘

    Sending you a big hug! Cause we all need one every now and then. I agree with Sandy. Dolls *shudder* you really creeped me out with them.

  4. I hate that you are going through this. You are totally right that waiting is awful when you just want answers and from those you can create a game plan. Just know that your family, friends, and fans love you and will be there to listen and support you. You are not alone. Hugs and love to you<3

    I hope you will know more soon (a quick solution would even be better).

    Love your books. I happen to be rereading them (once again…) and I am amazed how your mind works. What a great stories are coming out of it. I love them all 🙂

    Wish you all the best and a speedy recovery!
