Help Save the Elfyverse!

Folks, I'm in another bad bind, and I need your help to save the Elfyverse. (My writing universe, and my writing life...also the title of my blog .)

In six days, the house I live in will be sold out from under me. I can't go into many details because they're not mine to tell; I can say that I've done everything in my power to avoid this outcome, and yet...well, here I am.

Please take it as read that having to come back here and tell you that things have gone way south is not my idea of a good time. I'd rather do nearly anything else than have to beg for money.

That said, this is a crisis situation. I'm in desperate need of help. As I'm a writer and editor with an irregular income stream, I'm definitely not in a position to have to make an emergency move.

Right now, I'm supposed to turn in my next book, CHANGING FACES, by the end of May to my publisher. I don't know how I'm going to do that with all this upheaval...I don't know how I'm going to do anything, other than take it day by day and hope that tomorrow will be much better than today.

I'm exploring all options right now. I don't know where I"m going to end up. I don't have any idea what will happen to me, or my little dog Trouble (thirteen years old, and fourteen pounds of feisty goodness).

So I need your help. I need it now. And I wish I could say anything else.

Thank you.
