It’s a fresh new year and full of possibilities (and decisions to be made).
My day job is not very fulfilling, but pays the bills. So my hobbies fill in the gaps 🙂
Here’s a rundown of what was accomplished :
Ice Fairy 3, Cid, This Time Around, Upstaged 3, Complications, and re-released Love by the Numbers. Plus work on other new projects and rewrites
I knit four cushion covers, two cat blankets, five washcloths, and a sawtooth shawl!
I painted about four paintings (mostly for family).
Here’s a smidgen of what I did:
Ice Fairy 3 Coming Together
Love by the Numbers
So what’s shakin for this year? Rewrites, more paintings, but cutting back on the knitting. My job takes my hand strength and the only options are PT, or a cortisone shot. Oy. We’ll see what else I can do.
Plus, a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s joined this blog since I moved it over here to WordPress. I plan to post a lot more in the new year and change up the content, so stay tuned!
What’s shakin’ for your 2019?
Oh yes, construction. Rework, redo, refurbish, you name it. If you go to my page on Amazon, you will notice several titles now missing…why?
- They need a makeover. Not just lipstick and mascara, but a full-face makeover worthy of a Kardashian!
- They will be put into box sets. Most of my works are series (if you can tell from my tabs). People love to get a bargain, so I will be working those into box sets.
- There will be paperbacks! Who doesn’t miss the sweet smell of the pages or the joyous sound of those pages flicking by, or perhaps the feel of a glossy cover. I miss it! I’m sure readers do too, so when these are refreshed, they will be all be available in physical form.
- I am diverting my focus to newer works that are coming out a faster pace than I can currently handle (as well as the market). All good things in time.
That’s just the beginning, but I won’t divulge it all now. The best I can say is…stay tuned. 🙂
Thank you for your support!
It’s a new dawn for me! After a long time of being somewhat ‘off the radar’ as far as book releases, etc…I am very happy to report that things will be a’changing!
Perhaps inspired by age, the year, or by death itself (a reminder always that life is short and we should do what we were born to do) and part of that for me is always…. a writer.
Luckily my well did not run completely dry. There have been great stories penned between myself and Nephylim (The Upstaged series) as well as the Ice Fairy series. (finishing edits on book 2).
But that isn’t enough and hasn’t been enough. School took over my life, then finding work, and then again (most work now is contractor) so that’s a constant.
Finally! Some stability is creeping into my world again. I am signed on to be working at least til the end of this year, we’re staying put in our current abode, the cats are healthy, I’m getting long overdue medical work done, and life is finally calming down. What better time for writing?
After nearly 8 months of not putting ‘pen to paper’ I am finally back…and to quote Michael Buble:
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me……and i”m feelin’ good!
Thank you all very much for sticking by me, with me, and supporting me during these dark times.
Much love to all and cheers!
