Happy New Year!

And in the spirit of that, it’s time for all the soul searching and goal setting that goes hand in hand with the changing of the calendar year. Personally, I try to set goals for myself because I once attended a lecture that asked us…’How will you know when you’ve made an achievement, if you didn’t write down your goals to do it?”….It stuck in my mind and I find that it is really a blast when I look back at my list of goals and discover that I can place little check marks next to them.

My three Scottish historical are finished. My first sale to a large publisher was a goal for several years and I’m still giddy. Every time I look at the cover for ‘In Bed With A Strange’…I still smile. You know the smile, that one that you know is bright even when you can’t see yourself. It’s up for pre-order on Amazon.

I also finished another book that is uncontracted but I love it. So selling it is on my list of goals for 2009.

As far as writing goes, I plunged into another historical book this month. Once it’s finished I plan to sit back and take stock of what I should write after that.

I’ll be attending the Romantic Times convention this spring and even teaching a workshop.

Here’s raising a cheer for a new season and all the possibilities in front of us!
