Wishing you a slightly belated Happy New Year and hope you all had a lovely holiday season. I enjoyed spending time with family and was nice to have a bit of time off work. Still back to the grindstone now, EDJ has started again and have back to the editing all week.
New Year does tend to a time for reflection and looking back over the last year is actually quite surreal. I had my first book published, as well as signing a contract on another one, finishing a full length off as part of Nano and getting a request on the same one from Harlequin – as well as various other shorts and another full length currently in progress. It’s probably been the most manic year I can remember, with frequent 12 hours days and working most weekends – but it’s also been really rewarding and productive so it’s worth it I think 🙂
For the coming year, well I have another busy time ahead it seems. I’ve already sent in my first submission of the New Year so have fingers and toes crossed for that, and of course that means I’m already back to the obsessive inbox stalking! I have a short story coming out as part of an anthology in March, so I’m very excited to be in with some extremely talented other authors. I’m also hoping to get my first novel finished off (I keep getting distracted from it), two shorter WIPs finished and I have quite a few other ideas floating around just waiting for me to ‘let’ them come out and take over 🙂
So it’s looking quite exciting, watch this space! I hope you all have a wonderful 2013, you achieve everything you aim for and have some fun along the way 🙂
