Happy 2014! Reviewing 2013 and looking ahead.

I can't believe it's been a year since the creation of my Facebook fan page and Twitter account.  I've had a blast interacting with many people who follow my releases and weekly writing challenges.  Thanks for all the encouragement.  Please "like" my fan page to stay on top of the latest happenings.

Last February brought me the opportunity to attend a Heritage Cultural Event and time to work on three of the many stories in my head, including a post Civil War piece which seems to come to mind every February.

"A Beautiful Girl" celebrated her second birthday on April 7th.  I spent an entire week sharing trivia about this story.  If you've read this inspiring story, leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, and your favorite online store.

My online radio interview with Dr. Lila Robinson in May was a great success.  If you haven't heard it yet, take a listen here.

July was super busy.  With an overhauled website, a second novel called "Love's Intensity" released on July 11th, and my very first writer's camp, that month proved to be packed with successful events.

In August/September, I submitted two manuscripts, received the cover for my soon to be released novella, and even tried a little acting in a friend's play.  I also participated my first Blog Review Tour for "Love's Intensity."  I'm so grateful for the 4-star reviews received from the blog hosts.  Check out their reviews and others on Amazon and on my site.  I even hosted a Blog Hop Tour sponsored by Wild Child Publishing, the publisher of my teen romance paranormal novel, "Love's Intensity."  I also had a couple friends hound me about a couple stories I mentioned to them.  They can't wait for me to finish 'their stories.'

I could hardly contain my excitement when editing began for "Billiard Buddies" in October.  Check out some more information about this story here.  The Collingswood 2013 Book Festival also went on without a hitch.

I spent November featuring a couple of the stories I submitted earlier.  As of January 1st, I'm still waiting to hear of their acceptance, although one seems to be close to a 'yes.'

Then, finally in December, I hosted mother/daughter authors, Leslie and Terri Talley, on my blog here.  I spent the rest of the month dreaming up and writing over 16,000 words for two new stories.

So what's next?

Finally making the time to type in scenes currently written on too many sheets of paper.  My hope is that I understand what I wrote as some of them were written while still sleepy.

That's plenty, yet only a snap shot of all I did.  Stay tuned for the upcoming release date.



  1. Sounds like an amazing year! Congratulations on your book and may 2014 be even better for you!
