Kate Searches for a Daycare

The next morning, Kate had to get started looking for a daycare for Sarah. Kate dreaded having to put her there, but what was a single mom supposed to do?

A Temporary Pause

Sorry readers for not posting at all last week.  I got energized to work in my office and to get it reorganized and decluttered.  The Internet was down at our house one day, and another day I had a bad headache.  It just didn’t seem like I was ever going to get to HeirForce, which I obviously didn’t.

Yesterday, I realized I need to write a couple scenes before I can continue with posting anything in chapter 10.  So  I may need a few days to get my thoughts and direction figured out.  I only want to put my best out there.  Knowing that, I may not post until next week.  I also have been trying to figure out what other projects to work on to bring in some cash as I no longer have a steady book review gig.

Hopefully, I will be back here soon.  Thanks for the likes and follows!


Until next time,
