I'm interrupting the regular publication of my blog to say that there may be times in the next couple months when I don't get a book review published. I'm going to continue to do my best, though.
My husband, Jim, has been diagnosed with metastic cancer. It is located in at least four parts of the body, and it's rapidly progressing. We'll meet this afternoon with our family doctor to discuss hospice.
Jim told me he doesn't want an obituary when the time comes. What he does want is a book-related blog telling about his life as it relates to books. And, he asked that I write it so he can read it before he dies, and save it for that time. So, this is also the appropriate place to mention that I'll be here every day, at least with a note, but for a short time, the blog might not be as fine-tuned as it has been.
Thank you! Books are going to help get both of us through, and I'm doing a brown bag luncheon today. So, books are still the main focus of the blog. Consider this an interruption to mention that many thriller writers are about to lose one of their biggest fans.
