Happy New Year, everyone!
2017 proved to be a complicated and difficult year for so many that I know and for reasons that are apparent across the world, but I have high hopes for 2018 and all that it may hold.
I’m finding new ways to manage my time and projects, lately. So, armed with a new planner (Ink + Volt has some cool notebooks that I’m trying out this year), a Midori-Style Traveler’s Notebook that I made (in the shape of River Song’s Diary, because, how could I resist?), a variety of pens and optimistic ideas, I’m trying to get my 2018 off to a good start.
One of my goals this time around is to get back to blogging in a real way — and, to try my hand at vlogging. So, I hope I’ll be here every week with something to say about the literary life and things in my experience of it. And, I hope to hear from some of you, if you want to join me in conversation.
My new book heliophobia just hit the shelves, so to speak. You can pick up a copy online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Finishing Line Press website, or directly from me (working on getting the website running smoothly, so that link will be available later.). If you’d like to review a copy, please email me or request a review copy from the publisher. And, if you’d like to leave me a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, I’d appreciate it!
From January 1 to March 31, I’m also going to be trying out a new challenge, the 85k90; it’s a NaNoWriMo-style writing marathon in which people try to produce 85,000 words toward a novel or other project in 90 days. My novel has been on the back burner for too long, and I didn’t manage to win NaNoWriMo2017, so I’m aiming to finish my first draft. Surely, I’ll have things to say — or frustrated emojis to share, about that process over the next few months, too!
So, please stay tuned for more stuff.
I hope your 2018 is off to a great start! 🙂
