I always like to ruminate on the year just passed, and this year especially so.
2014 was a good one. In a couple of ways, it was the year of accomplishing what I really hoped for, but didn’t think would happen, or at least not yet.
In my law practice, I achieved something in a case that I hoped for, but didn’t think would happen–and for that I received the Excellence in Advocacy Award. Didn’t see that coming. Truly I did not.
In my writing, I had two books come out: THE JANUS LEGACY and ASH AND BONE. I knew they’d be coming because they were accepted the prior year. I had two books accepted for publication in 2015: BLOCKBUSTER (coming out mere days from now) and SKINSHIFT (coming in June 2015).
The big surprise to me was signing the 3-year/3-book deal with DarkFuse. This falls into the category of what I wished and hoped for, but didn’t think would happen, or at least not yet. I remember the day I got the email. I was doing my usual stuff on my PC in the early morning before leaving for work, and there it came, offering the deal and with it, the opportunity to be a DarkFuse Roster Author. I actually squealed when I read it!
And so here we are in 2015. I turned in the first novel under the book deal several days ago, and am already beginning to work on the concept for the next one.
Here’s hoping for an even better 2015! Happy New Year! And to my readers, a special thank-you!
