Merry Christmas my Nutty friends!
I love this pic. Now, why didn’t I think of that? On Christmas Day, in the midst of the chaos and family everywhere, you’ll find me tucked into a tree with a glass of wine. Okay, no arms, that may be a problem, but I’m sure I can hook up a type of extended straw from the star cup holder that I’ll rig. Who says you can’t drink wine from a party cup? LOL
No nut, today. I scheduled a couple of days off around the holidays. To take a wee break and to get my family’s holiday sorted. Phew. It’s been a big year! And I still have plenty to do before Christmas Day, even some last minute shopping and haircuts for the boys, which I am sure will be such a pleasant experience. Even if I go toting early gifts, I still may need to hold ’em down!
But do mark your calendars for Sunday, January 5th where I will do a year-in-review for Sundae With Nuts. A kind of Best-of, and take nominations for the BEST NUT of 2013!
In all seriousness, I’ve had a wonderful year as an author. My debut WATERSHED was released in March in both digital and Print and I entered into the world of romance publishing. A very proud moment, not just for me but my family. That extended pride and support from your loved ones makes it all the more special. And I’ve only just begun! The next book in the Love Where You Roam series, A WORLD APART is due out in March 2014, almost a year to the day for Watershed.
I participated in NaNoWriMo, where I completed half of PARAIC, the first book in my Rugby, Love & Other Stuff series (current title ha ha). I didn’t win the NaNo, but I got a huge chunk of it done and a great start to the book and series. Hoping to have the first draft done by March. That’s my goal, but lots depends on my kids!
One of my biggest successes this year was this Sundae With Nuts blog. I have almost 15K hits on my website and have hosted some awesome authors, all while having fun and a laugh. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday. All my guests have not only earned a spot in the Nut Hall of Fame, but have also earned one in my heart. Seriously. The lovely ladies that volunteered to bear their souls with such bravery and humor have all my admiration.
So, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my Nuts, and all my followers, anyone who has read WATERSHED, and all those excited for A WORLD APART. THANK YOU and may you have a wonderful, fantastic, brilliant, memorable, outrageous Christmas this year. And wishing you health and happiness for 2014. Happy reading!
