Happy New Year, everyone! 2017 was a rough year for a lot of people, me included, so I think most of us are glad to see it in our rearview mirror. Good riddance, 2017! As for 2018, it will bring a lot of changes for me personally. My oldest son will be starting high school, and my youngest son turns thirteen so I’ll officially have two teenage boys in the house (prayers welcomed!) My husband is retiring from the Navy after twenty-four years of service to begin a new chapter of his life. As for me, I’m starting a new full-time job at the end of January!
Writing-wise, I’m looking forward to the end of March, when my book POINT OF CONTACT is scheduled to be released through Carina Press. That story took me over two years from start to finish, and it’s been a huge labor of love that I’m so excited to see come to fruition. Preorder link is here! I’ve also completed the first of what will ultimately be a four- to five-book series, a huge undertaking for me but one I’m very excited about! Hopefully by the time February rolls around, I’ll have some news to share about that.
As we say goodbye to 2017, what are some of the things you’re looking forward to in 2018? Wishing everyone a year full of peace, happiness and endless blessings!
