    An Update.

    An Update.

    Hello,
    I thought I would send out a little update to let you know that unfortunately I’m having to cancel the planned Halloween special of The Faerie Folk podcast. My family and I are going through a very difficult and heartbreaking time at the moment and I need to spend all my time loving and supporting them as we try our best to make it through this together.
    Therefore, I have made the difficult decision to place the podcast on hiatus for the time being. It is certainly not the end of The Faerie Folk and there are still more stories to be told, but for now I would appreciate your patience and support as I take some much needed time away.
    Thank you for being here, thank you for listening, look after yourselves and your families and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.
    Goodbye x
