Starting at 5 PM CDT today, a stay-at-home order, issued by the Governor of Illinois, will go into effect across the entire state of Illinois due to the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A list of permitted activities during the stay-at-home order can be found here.
Due to my mother being in poor health and having to spend a considerable amount of time of each day caring for my mother, I have only recently started getting around to doing writing work on several books to be written and published, and this writing work will continue during the stay-at-home order. As a self-published author, I work from home under normal circumstances, and my work as an author is not incorporated as a business in Illinois or any other jurisdiction. However, final publishing of books that I am currently writing will not be done while the stay-at-home order is in effect in Illinois.
While the stay-at-home order is in effect in my home state, anyone with an Amazon account can buy gifts for me from my Amazon wishlist.
