Last year was a fantastic year. I got to do a bit of traveling, including visiting with relatives in Virginia and Alabama who I hadn’t seen for a while, was able to help with the launch of Carina Press as a freelance editor, and saw the publication of my first book in hardcover.
So far, 2011 is shaping up to be even better. My next book, Wherever Grace Is Needed, is going to be released at the end of May, and I have a story in a holiday collection from Kensington that will include a novella from Fern Michaels. Runaway Christmas, a story I’m finishing this week, features some of the characters from Miss You Most of All. It’s been fun visiting with them again.
I don’t know about you, but I love January. I love having a new year to work with–it’s like a blank slate. I always draw up a reading list for the coming year–a list that usually gets ignored in favor of spur-of-the-moment reads–and a few resolutions. (And yes, I have on occasion followed through on them!) This year my favorite resolution is to kick my knitting skills up a notch and attempt to knit something more complicated than a scarf. I’m searching for the world’s easiest sweater pattern. I know it’s out there somewhere!
