A Personal Message To My Readers @Adele_Downs #Bereavement

Life often gets in the way of our plans, but the loss of a loved one can derail us like nothing else. Since the death of my dear husband of 30 years earlier this year, I have placed my publishing career on hold while I grieve.

To keep my creativity alive I’ve put my love of reading to work by becoming a professional reader for NetGalley, by cooking unique and healthy meals for one, through long walks and Tai Chi classes, and by taking photographs to share with you. But I won’t lie; the grieving process is brutal, relentless, and slow going.

Soon, I hope the writing will come. Publishing has been a huge part of my personal identity for many years and I can’t imagine life without it. I also know that the pieces of my broken life and broken heart will be reshaped in the months and years ahead, and that’s bound to be reflected in the stories I write. We’ll see. When I’m ready to publish a new book, you’ll be the first to know. I hope you’ll be here to welcome me back.

Best–Adele

Goodbye, My Love #Grief #Bereavement #LoveandLoss

Please excuse my silence. I haven’t posted much to social media the past few months, talked to my readers about my books, or started writing a new novel. How could I? My loving, sweet and kind husband of thirty years passed away suddenly in March and I’m devastated. My career has been put on hold while I grieve. At the same time, I’m packing boxes for the move from my family home in Pennsylvania to a little house for one in Delaware.

I hope you will be here when I return.

Best–Adele
