So sorry for the late response. Well, I've been struggling a bit with what direction I want to go with in the Angel of Death Series - either stay with the current publisher, or ask my rights back, self-publish books one and two and then book three as well.

I don't spend as much time on Goodreads as I want to, unfortunately! I think about two hours a week.
