Bye 2013, Hello 2014!

2013 was a great year, especially since I didn’t have anything published in 2012 and wondered if I’d already seen my last word in print. Glad I kicked Doubt’s ass!

My alter ego and I saw three novellas and one novel published electronically in 2013. For some that might be a pittance, but for me, that was full of awesome! (especially after the drought of 2012, which really started in late 2010.) I wrote more words this year than I had in 2011 and 2012 COMBINED, and I plan to break that record in 2014.

This summer my alter ego and I both got contracts thanks to my fabo agent, which for now is the highpoint of my career–two contracts for two names/series from two different houses. I laughed, I cried, I freaked the hell out.

In 2014, I’ll see the print version of the 2013 novel, three electronic novellas, and one print novel published. That will be a personal best for me. But if I can swing it, I hope it will also see my first self-published efforts, two novellas that launch series with characters my readers are already familiar with.  If any of you are planning to attend Romance Slam Jam, I’ll be breaking the news and sharing the covers there.

The idea of seeing six new publishing credits is inspiring and motivating and stress-inducing all at once! But I am looking forward to the challenge and reaping the results of my endeavors.

All of that to say this: 2013 was a great year for me, and 2014 looks to be the same. THANK YOU for being a part of my journey!
