Good-bye 2015...Hello 2016

Year in Review
WOW…2015 was one hell of a year! My 40th year…10th year of marriage…10th year teaching…TONS of family time and #meaningfulmoments, a new house, a new book and LOTS of writing!

On the writing front, Write More Publications was gracious enough to publish the second Ruby Hood, The Twistedly True Guardian Tale. I also wrote more this year, than I’ve written in previous years and finished the next in the Precious Gems Series, which I hope to have out in 2016. AND I’m currently working on something new, a futuristic fiction set in 2035 after enzymes in GMOs have MODIFIED the people of the world. It’s incredibly fun to create and write!

Clearly, the writing part is great. However convincing people to read a book, and then tell others about it or write a review is MUCH more difficult! Plus, I’m not especially good at promoting myself, but I’m adapting and trying some new things.

There is an upcoming BOOK BLITZ for The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood via YA BOUND BOOK TOURS. If you are a reader, writer, blogger, fan, etc… I hope you’ll consider signing up! 

And, I’ve made my first book trailer for The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood. Check it out…

All in all, 2015 was utterly amazing and I am grateful beyond belief!

Upcoming in 2016
What’s next? GOALS! I don’t make resolutions, but I do LOVE to set goals. Is goal setting about mastering or perfection? Not usually…okay never. I’ll be honest, I’m in it for the journey. Sure the accomplishment or destination is nice, but I have an affection for the trip. Sometimes I make it to my destination, other times I end up someplace completely unexpected. However, I usually have a good time and ALWAYS learn a thing or two. Plus, most journeys are riddled with those #meaningfulmoments I love so dearly.

I do set some very specific goals, but they are always fluid and subject to change at a moment’s notice. However, some are every day constants, meant to provide general directions…purposes…destinations. Here are a few of my absolutes for the upcoming year…
  • Write: as often as possible...if there’s no time, make some
  • Read: at least once a day
  • Live: daily
  • Laugh: hourly
  • Love: every second
  • Learn: every time the opportunity arises

Wishing you and yours a lovely, delightful and wonderful New Year!
Happy 2016!
