The only real news I've got is that I've been asked to be a contributing writer to the Easy-Writer Blog, with a focus on my experiences as a parent of someone who has a mental illness, which I hope to tackle with sensitivity and some insight. Unfortunately, the story doesn't really have a happy ending, but it is what it is.
