Send out the old; Happy New Year’s Eve!

Good Monday morning! Can you believe it’s New Year’s Eve? Wow, it’s been a fast, and exciting year. So, what are you sending out? What do I mean, well lend an ear…

On New Year’s Eve, we promise to leave old habits behind and make new ones. Of course, by the end of January, we’ve usually given up on our promises. But, this year, I’ve already set in place some of mine… Here are my writing promises and resolutions…

I’ve already got my writing schedule completed for 2019 and my preorders ready to schedule. This new year will be my year of change as far as my writing goes. I’m more organized and I plan to push further in my writing career. 2018 has been an amazing year for my writing and I hope the trend continues for the new year.

So, what are your promises for the new year?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You in the new year!

Writing…A Resolution…

Happy New Year! Well, 2017 is up and running… New year, new you?

As I sit here writing this post, the Today show is talking about exercising for the new year. Many of you have made a vow to exercise more, but will you do it? I’ve made that same resolution, but have only stretched a couple of things. Now I’ve exercised my mind quite a bit, but not my body.

Another writer asked me if I had any writing resolutions… Don’t we all? I’ve seen several posts about writing resolutions. Some say they will write more this year… Some will publish the book they’ve been working on for a long while… Some say they will blog more… The list goes on…

The problem with this is that we still have the same amount of hours in the day. Yes, I’ve got my year of writing planned out and plotted on my calendar and schedule, but will I be able to see it through? Will I be able to squeeze out more hours in the day? Let’s just say that I’ve put my mind to staying more focused this year. We will see how that goes, but as of now, I’m behind…

Resolutions are a good thing because they make you think about your health, your relationships, and your career. Some people make drastic decisions just after the first of the year, vowing to make a change in their lives for the better. But, make sure that the changes you make are the best thing for you.

Will I write more this year? Will I publish more books this year? Will I make the New York Bestsellers list this year? Will I write full time before the end of the year? Will I write the novel of the year? These are questions I ask every year, but will they happen?

Have you made a resolution about life, relationships, or your writing? What are they?

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

2014 almost gone, here comes 2015!

It’s hard to believe 2014 is almost in the record books. The year flew by and some days it felt like I was sitting at a train station watching it zoom by. I can say it has been a great year.

As for my writing, I published seven, count them, seven books this year! Wow! I had to recount because I didn’t think it was possible, but evidently it was… I learned a lot this year as far as my writing goes. Many authors have said they learn more and more as time goes on and I believe that.

I did hit many mile markers with my writing. I hit the Amazon top 10 several times this year and even hit the #1. Yep, that made me do a happy dance and jump around like a crazy person. Then of course I had some great reviews that made me cry and some reviews that made me cringe, but life goes on and not everyone will see things as you do.

And yes, I started Horseshoe Publishing in earnest, adding many new aspects such as website design which has been really exciting. I’ve taken on some fascinating clients and enjoyed every minute of the ride. Funny the things you learn from other authors.

Romancing September Across the World hit all time highs this year. Along with Rosie Amber, we were baffled by the response and have almost filled up next years roster. It was such a great month and can’t wait for next year.

Personally this year has been great! I made a resolution last year to enjoy life and take it as it comes. I’ve stuck by the resolution and it’s been a great ride.

Now on to upcoming things for 2015! I’ll be doing a book signing before Valentine’s Day for the upcoming new release of Ridge. Also having my books put in local book store which totally makes me squeal. It’s already starting out great and it hasn’t even started yet.

This is a wish for all of you, have a Happy New Year’s Eve. Stay safe, be good and write well.

As always, great writing and May God Bless You…
