The Fate of KO

Morning Kindle-ites!

So…there has been some speculation as to what is going on with the blog, and me…not wanting to field anymore emails, (cause they are just down right exhausting) thought I would go ahead and throw all of you a bone.  Last week I posted an update saying that I was going to take some time off for writing, which I did…as a matter of fact, last Tuesday was SPECTACULAR in my world of writing.  Unfortunately, that spectacular feeling didn’t last too long.  On Wednesday my nephew passed away from his 2 year battle with cancer.  This was not a surprise, the result of cancer rarely is, but he was very young, and I loved him very much.  As a result…I have not written or read anything in over a week, (kinda makes it hard to write a review when you have nothing to write about.) That said…my head is slowly getting back to that place where I  can focus, and because of this, will return to my normally scheduled, slightly psychotic rants next week.  I am so sorry that I didn’t let all of you know what was going on, (it probably could have saved me hours of “chill…I’m not closing KO!” emails.) but in all honesty, I really didn’t know what to say. Any-who… I hope all of you enjoy the rest of your week, I will see you on Monday!

Much Love,


About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.

  1. Misty,

    I am so sorry to hear about your family’s terrible loss. It’s completely understandable that everything else takes a back seat right now. Take some time for healing. If you need anything, please let me know.


  2. Misty, I am so terribly sorry to hear of your loss. To lose anyone in their battle with cancer is heartrending, but to lose someone so dear and so young breaks the heart. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Take all of the time you need, healing is a process that takes time. You will always miss him, but I know that he will always be in your heart. I hope that you find peace as time goes by and that hopefully writing may help with that as well. I know that, for me, writing has helped me go through some dark times myself.

    *hugs* xoxo

  3. So sorry to hear of your nephew’s passing. You and your family will be in my thoughts.

  4. I wrote this in 2000, when I lost someone very dear to me, I hope
    it will bring you comfort too! Maybe the comfort comes, from the writing of it.
    You are in my thoughts and I hope you are feeling better soon.

    Sleep Softly

    Sleep ever so softly, oh dear little one;
    Dream of our Love, that will never be gone.

    The wind calls your name up to Heaven above;
    So Angels can greet you, with Comfort and Love.

    Trees whisper softly, calling kindred spirits from the past;
    Telling all to listen, you’ve come home at last.

    Now Darkness has fallen and you’ve come so very far;
    Remember a light is shining for you, forever in our Hearts.

    1. Jill, Thank you for your poem. It puts into words exactly what I am feeling at the moment and will forever.

      Dee(Misty’s mom)
