From LF, with authorly love (and apologies!)

Dear Endingers,

LF, here. You may have noticed that I’ve been pretty absent lately and that almost all of the Team Lindsey correspondence has been coming from LP. She’s been so unbelievably fantastic the past few months, I’ll never be able to express my thanks for her support and sheer awesomeness adequately. That is an absolute, hands-down fact.

So here’s the deal, my friends. The true, honest, nitty-gritty lowdown. It’s not fun or pretty, but it is real and very honest. My marriage of six years has ended, and the transition period has been…well, transitory, for one, and trying and distracting and trying and surprising and trying and…let’s just say it’s caused a major upheaval in my life.

I’ve reached a fork in the road, and while I fully intend to write and write and write as much as I possibly can (the voices in my head couldn’t possibly allow for anything other than that), there are new potholes slowing my process and unexpected branches crossing the road, barring my passage. A new day job has become a staple for me, not to mention all of the joys and struggles of starting over.

After much discussion. LP and I have agreed that postponing the release of Before The Dawn a couple months is not only necessary for the quality of the story, but an inevitability, considering my new time constraints. As always, we want, more than anything, to make sure that the story we deliver—Dani and Zoe’s final act—will be satisfying and memorable. And to do that, we’re going to have to take just a little bit more time. We really didn’t want to, we really tried not to, and we really hate to do it, but it’s what has to be.

Thank you all for your endless support and love of the series, and we apologize a thousand times for the delay.

As always, happy reading!
Lindsey & Lindsey
