As many of you are aware, Alex suffered the sudden and unexpected loss of her husband a few short years ago. An incredibly strong and resilient woman, she has spent the time since working tirelessly to help her family and friends with their grief and recovery. Although she made several attempts to rebound personally and professionally, she has been sidetracked repeatedly by the needs of those she loves and cares for.
Now, while it seems that we have all been set straight, healed, and strengthened, she has decided to finally take the time she needs to focus on herself and her own well-being, and finally begin her own healing in earnest. We have no doubt that she will return more determined and energized, but for now, it is we who owe her our support and love as she has helped us.
Thank you for your concern and understanding.
The Brown Family.
I am so very excited to announce Romantic Shorts’ return to the land of the living.
Check out our Reading Room today for our latest short story, The Dog, The Dame, and The Dick, by BC,Canada native Geoff LaCasse. A quick trip to pre-WWII Portugal will have us all feeling right as rain in no time. Welcome to Geoff, and welcome back to all of our Romantic Shorts family!
I’d also like to thank, with all the sincerity and love I can muster, all of you who stood by me, messaged me, encouraged me, through the darkest of my days. They can insist all they want that all this technology pulls us apart. Fact is, I’ve met so many new friends online – friends whose words of support and understanding have meant the world to me. How incredibly lucky I am to return to such compassion and warmth. Thank you all!
Now go check out Geoff’s story. It’s a good one.
So it seems Romantic Shorts has had a major meltdown. Sifting through the entire site today, virtually all of the internal site links are broken and giving 404 ‘No Idea What You’re Talking About’ messages. Wouldn’t it be great if they all have the same problem, and it’s just a simple one stop fix to do the whole repair? Although, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to have to nitpick through and fix every one – a little time-consuming, but a great exercise in getting back into the game.
Either way, first things first. Figuring out what the problem is in the first place. And oddly excited to tackle this monster.
In the meantime, I’ll be peeking through the submissions I have on hand, looking for more, and getting the backroom ready for the return of the online front room.
Nose to the grindstone. Back to the drawing board. Deep breath. Here we go…
