Not everything is a success story. Today I had to cancel the pre-order of the tenth book in my series Lost Dogs. There was too much book left to write, and not enough time left to write it. It was a pretty tough decision to make, but the difficulty lay in the making, and not in whether or not to do it. The other option was to release an unfinished book, and that just wasn't going to happen. It feels a bit like failure to not be able to deliver the book on time, as I'd said I would, but I guess that's part of life. I believe the book will be better for it. I know I will be less stressed, and I think that in the bigger scheme of things, it won't be that big a deal - but it's still no fun. Sometimes, bad stuff happens, and we just have to deal. It's a life less, but one I wouldn't recommend.
