I hate bad news and I hate letting you down even more. A lot of you might have seen my recent social media posts about my father in-law who passed away last weekend. This hit my family really hard. Even though this was something we had been anticipating due to his declining health over the past year, I have discovered it is impossible to prepare for the death of a parent. Right now, my family needs me, and unfortunately this means that I am going to have to cancel two of my upcoming signings I was really looking forward to: Apollycon and Wicked Book Weekend.
This was not an easy decision. When I accept an invitation to a signing, I have every intention on attending. Unfortunately, things happen that are out of my control. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me over the past several weeks in regards to my family. My husband and I have truly appreciated your kind words and prayers during this time.
I am sorry for disappointing anyone with my decision. I hope you will understand why I had to make this call.

You shouldn’t have to feel sorry. Those that are true fans will understand. I started taking care of my parents right out of high school. My brothers got to leave home and live their lives and I stayed home. I don’t regret my decision but after taking care of them for well over 30 years, I’m trying to find out what it means to be single for the first time. So I applaud your decision and we will be here for you when you’re ready.

I am truly sorry for your loss. You shouldn’t have to apologize. This is something that really matters and I feel like you should do what you feel is necessary.
