Robert Aston Jones

Wowzer. Has it been that long?

Allow me to apologize. And explain. I have mentioned several times that I have become a care-giver. I wasn’t going to discuss my personal life in this blog, but, since it has had a tremendous impact on my writing’s timeline, I feel I owe you an explanation. I promise to keep it short.

My wife’s physical—and, now, as I’m painfully aware, mental—condition has trended down for the past ten years. She is now living in a nursing home (and has been since October of last year), which is where I spend a great deal of my time.

Well, I promised to keep it short. So…that’s all I’ll say. At least for now.

As for the novel I’ve been plugging away on? It’s not perfect…and never will be. Nonetheless, I will read through it one more time and publish it, warts and all. This time, THAT’S A PROMISE. It WILL be published by the end of summer…and hopefully much sooner. (Unless it’s not published by the end of summer. I’ve learned that life can throw us some major curve balls.)
