I am breaking away from the Beaumont series this holiday season. It feels weird because I enjoy returning to Sheraton Beach to spend the holidays with one of my favorite families. Also, I will not finish the Seduced into Submission series’ final book, Unwound, this winter as planned. I had the option of writing another book or graduating in May and opted for completing my doctorate. This year has been about mental health and self-care, and I needed to step away from the stress of deadlines and focus on my own priorities. It has been a long five years. I am ready to finish and get back to writing the final book you are waiting for me to complete.
