Okay, guys… it’s time to confess that ROGUE CHARMS is probably not going to be coming in October. 😣 I’m seriously considering emigrating to Costa Rica so I can get decent healthcare insurance. Because I am a micro-business of one without any employees, right now in the state I live, I’m not able to purchase decent healthcare insurance from a reputable company.
BUT… I can get decent health insurance and healthcare in Costa Rica. And that matters enough for me to consider disrupting my entire life. You bet it does. And you know what? I would be able to write just fine in Costa Rica.
So in order to try to figure this out – how to get residency, how to safely move my pets, what sort of things I need to get rid of and what I will ship, and pricing out all of this – has started to suck my life away. I’m also traveling down to Costa Rica on June 17 for 12 days to look around and make sure that this is a move I can live with.
I’ve got a lot to learn and I’ve not made any final decisions, but I’ve already taken my elderly dog Charlie to the vet, who says that he’s in good enough shape to take on a plane… But I think this would be a one-way trip for Charlie. So there are serious implications to considering a move like this. I will take work with me when I go to Costa Rica on the 17th, and I am certainly going to be writing through the summer as much as I am able.
So hopefully there won’t be too much of a disruption and ROGUE CHARMS will still be coming by, say, January instead of October. All I can say is, for now, things are very much up in the air. And I ask that all of you hang in there with me.
