Many of you on WordPress have become good friends over the years. This is a hard post for me to write, and it may very well be my last on this site. My Beloved and I are traveling more, and I find myself spread too thin with all of the social media venues available these days. I’ve decided to cut back on most of my social media activities.

I’d like to stay in touch. If you’d like to do the same and if you haven’t already done so, I invite you to “Friend” me on Facebook.

If you’d like to continue learning more about my latest writing projects, book releases, offers, and adventures in the publishing world, and perhaps a little songwriting and poetry along the way, please follow and “Like” me at my Facebook Author Page:

Thank you for the love, kindness, support, encouragement, and friendships so many of you have given to me over the years on WordPress. I wish you and your loved ones a life full of blessings.

With Love,

    Russ, this is a sad post to read, but on the flip side, it’s a happy one for your next chapter with your beloved. I have enjoyed our friendship throughout the years and I pray that we stay in touch. I will friend you on FB as requested and ‘like’ your page as well.
    I wish you and your beloved a lovely travel experience filled with magic and more books! I have always been inspired by your ability to write and publish all of your books, including the poetry ones that you so kindly included me in.
    I regret that due to my tumultuous circumstances in the last few years that I haven’t stayed in touch as I once did. It is with a little sadness that you won’t be writing on your blog as I always enjoyed reading when you did post.
    I wish you and your beloved all the best in this world and I hope we can stay in touch via FB or email. I still have my mom’s stories that I’d like to publish one of these days. Perhaps you would give me some pointers when I’m ready?
    Thank you again for your friendship, your kindness, your support and your connection with me. Our blogging community will miss you and I will miss you, but I wish you all the best!
    Love and appreciation to you! xo
