I’m Moving But I Don’t Know Where


I know I’ve been absent from the blogosphere lately. I would like to thank all of you for your kind comments and support about Miles. It means a lot.

The last few weeks have flown by. I had two major writing deadlines. Working has kept me sane in an oddly insane way. I want to keep up the frantic pace, however, the next few months will be interesting on the home front.

We’re moving this summer. Here’s the kicker, though. We don’t know where. If that sounds crazy, it is. And it’s also frustrating. We’ve known for months that we have to move since our visa is up. That’s not the frustrating part. The powers that be haven’t decided where to place us yet. For those of you unfamiliar with our story, my partner’s company moved us to London in 2011. We knew it wasn’t permanent. And now they are holding meetings on the best location to place us for the next couple of years. I know it’s not an easy decision. Lots of variables have to be considered and such.

However, the deadline is quickly approaching and I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to leave things to the last second. We are aware of two possibilities and we have never lived in either place. Hopefully soon I can share the news of where our next adventure will begin. As of now, I have my fingers crossed that the decision will be made soon.

With everything that’s going on, I have a feeling I won’t be blogging as much over the next few months. My plan is to continue contributing on IWSG day.

In other news, I released the first couple of episodes of Girl Love Happens (details can be found here), a new lesbian romance series that I had hoped to release several months ago, but life took over. Luckily, the next two episodes are almost ready to go. Such a relief.

And there’s even bigger news.

Chrys Fey’s Seismic Crimes (Disaster Crimes Book 2) is almost here. Today I want to share the cover and blurb.


SeismicCrimes_w10160_750An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.

Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.

When a tip reveals the killer’s location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

Before I go, I want to wish all of you who are getting ready for the A-Z challenge good luck. I may not pop by every day, but know that I am cheering all of you on. Have fun!

  1. exciting times, I wish you both the very best, please come and visit us here in the South West before you go.

      How is everything in your world?

      • everything here is going fairly smoothly, I’ve spent the last few weeks redoing the family bathroom which has been fun but we are nearing the end of the process at last. We’re off to Orlando in the summer before my youngest starts school.

      • TBM says:

        Orlando! I bet the kids are counting down the days.

      • I don’t think they really understand the significance of the destination, we’re not pointing it out, they know it’s in America and that means pop tarts and Hershey chocolate but not the whole theme park thing that’s actually going to melt their minds when they eventually get there.

      • TBM says:

        Pop tarts, huh. I love walking through the American aisle in a grocery store to see what’s associated with the States.

        I grew up next to Disneyland in California and I agree, their little minds will be blown. Can’t wait to see the photos.

      • they’re obsessed with America at the moment, even though you can get things like pop, tarts, Hershey’s and Oreo’s here YouTube has them convinced that America is bigger, better and yummier in every way, there are dozens, nay hundreds of video’s online of kids doing taste comparisons between different flavours. They will watch them for days given half a chance

      • TBM says:

        Interesting. Haven’t seen the videos and I fear they would depress me. Sad to think America is better because of the junk food. Not sure that’s a good thing.

      • Trust me, you don’t want to see them they’re invariably terribly filmed, saccharine sweet and bubblegummy midwestern happy people who you’d like to slap as they feed their kids crap and earn a living whilst doing so. They do also review toys and other crap but ultimately it’s all just a plug for whomever sends them stuff and pays them to open, try, taste on camera.

  2. Don’t you love it when a company drags its feet? I hope they make a decision soon.

  3. Hilary - Dangled Carat says:

    I meant to write you… UGH! Still no word? You must be going nuts! We closed on both houses two weeks ago and started construction on the new one already. you’d die if you saw me with my power drill and hammer! How is everything going?


  4. Beth Ann says:

    We all have been so busy these days—Hilary is moving, too! What a whirlwind you are going through not knowing where your next spot is going to be. Hang in there and know that even if I have not been present on your blog I have thought of you many times! Hope you find out where your new home will be soon and that you are on the road to a new adventure. Hugs and love!!!

    • TBM says:

      Thanks Beth Ann. The next few months will be exciting and stressful, but that’s expected. Every time I pass a teapot I think of you and your wonderful collection. I hope all is well.

  5. Pat Hatt says:

    Ugg that has to be beyond annoying. Hopefully they figure it out soon.

  6. Geoff W says:

    Good luck with the move! Seems like you’re already handling it better than I would. Not knowing is not in anyway okay!

  7. ChrysFey says:

    Thank you so much for including my cover reveal in your post!

    I couldn’t imagine not knowing where I’d have to move. That must be hard. Not just leaving a place you.know but going to one that you have no real choice in. I hope everything goes well for you!

  8. I don’t like leaving things until the last minute either, so I feel your frustration. Let’s hope they get their act in gear soon!

  9. Colline says:

    I hope you if d out where you are moving to soon. It can be very unnerving when you know know what the future holds.

  10. I hope you find out soon so you can start on the next adventure! Good luck.

  11. As if an impending move (not to mention a recent death in the family) wasn’t/weren’t already stressful enough… just add a tonne of uncertainty 😦 Hope you’ll get a heads-up soon!

  12. The Guat says:

    Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude it’s great to hear from you and see out here. I missed your last post so I’m not sure what has been going on with you but I will backtrack and see what has been going on with you and Miles. I’ve been a little off on the blogging front, my schedule has been pretty random this month but I’m trying to get back on the wagon. 🙂 In any case I’m glad to hear that your series is off and running I have to check it out. Hope that you are doing well and hope that the move will be smooth and that they let you know sooner rather than later. Wish you luck my friend. Buen Camino!

    • TBM says:

      It’s so hard to keep up with blogging when life presents challenges, like a crazy schedule, so I understand completely.

      Thanks so much for the luck. I’m going to need it.

  13. cheriereich says:

    It would drive me nuts not knowing where I was going to live in a few months as I like to have things planned and finished way before a deadline, but I hope they figure it out soon. Congrats to Chrys! Her cover is great!

  14. Oh gosh, I can only imagine how frustrating it is to have your future so up in the air right now. I hope you get concrete news soon and that you and your partner will love your new home, wherever it may be. I hope too that the move goes smoothly!

    Congratulations to Chrys!

  15. My son is in that sort of flux. He is trying to choose a law school and has a few excellent options, wait-listed on some others, and just trying to hang loose and not let the unknown drive him nuts.

  16. lexacain says:

    I’m so sorry that your life is up in the air abut the move. That’s stressful. I hope they decide soon, and that it’s a wonderful place! Your cover for Girl Love Happens is adorable! Congrats on getting stories done and having others ready to go. Congrats to Chrys on her cover reveal! 🙂

  17. Good luck with the move!

  18. I hope it’s a smooth move. I know it’s not an easy time. Yay for Chrys and your episodes.

  19. I would so hate to move every few years. I’ve lived in the same house for 30 years. My kids never moved! Well, I move around a lot through my writing. I suppose that’s enough.

  20. Goodness, I hope you find out soon where you’re going. Truly!

    (Chrys! Yay!)

  21. Writing does keep us sane and deadlines though scary, make sure we don’t procrastinate and waste time. Hope your move is smooth and easy.

  22. Good luck with your move. Hope you’ll get back to blogging when you get settled.

  23. Just popping in to check on you. I hope all is going well and that you are settled in some place that makes you happy. 🙂

  24. I hate uncertainty. I’d rather know for 6 months I’m moving into a cave than find out a week ahead of time I’ll be in a mansion. 🙂 Hugs! I’m so so sorry about Miles. Fur babies are so important and essential to a family.
