Cathal’s Seer Update

I am getting very close to finishing the final book in the Purification Trilogy: Cathal’s Seer. I’d intended to get it out last month, but something came up in my life.

I found myself in a situation after 36 years of law enforcement where the economy went south, prices went up, the number of shifts I got diminished, and my “finish line”, the date of my retirement, slowly receded into the distance. Realizing that I had come very close indeed to paying off my mortgage, I seized upon an opportunity: The short version is that by selling the house, buying a comparable one on the Sunshine Coast for much less, porting the mortgage to avoid the penalties, I could finally retire completely. So on top of my full time job, running the Order of Scáthach, participating in Surrey Interfaith Council, and running Vancouver PPD, I took 6 twelve hour days to stage my house in the last week of April and put it on the market. This of course led to multiple viewings, open houses, and so on, plus the endless cleaning and gardening involved. Therefore for the last month and a half I haven’t had much time or attention to devote to finishing the book.

I am happy to report that yesterday afternoon we finally closed the deal and we’re planning to move at the end of July. This means the next few weeks will be a frenzy of signing papers and packing and so on, but eventually this means I’ll be fully retired from law enforcement and able for the first time to devote all my attention to writing. So thanks for your patience.
