I believe it appropriate that I should say something, since it has been quite some time since I made a post here. Well, I could provide you all with a laundry list of excuses, but I'm of the impression that everybody had a pretty rough 2020, and I'm sure we all have a few stories to share. In 2021 things have shaped up well for me, but there's been a lot of runaround, catching up with life, a few health issues, some family losses, the daily grind, and so forth. (It would seem I provided a list anyway...ah well.)
There are, of course, my own efforts with my latest manuscript to consider, and believe me when I say that I understand your grind, writers of the world! I have been on this opus journey longer than any other I have ever undertaken-more than three years-but the goal is finally in sight!
At any rate, I have not forgotten about this blog, and I would like to offer my apologies to those of you who have submitted your works to me and are still waiting for a review (some of you, I know, have been waiting far longer than merely the date of my last post). Rest assured, if you submitted anything to me before today, I HAVE read your book. As of today I'm caught up on every outstanding reading obligation - it's just a matter of organizing my thoughts to generate a worthwhile review. As a result, I will be making my next few review posts more rapidly in order to catch up, and see that everybody gets the time and attention they deserve for their work. I will also be getting in touch with each of you individually to let you know the status of your submission.
Thank you for your interest in RainHandBooks - I appreciate it, I really do, and I'm looking forward to getting back to the business of helping to recognize the talent of indie authors. The time to read is once again nigh, and I can't wait to go on some exciting new journeys with you all!
