GOOD TIDINGS AND BLESSINGS TO ALL
Another year is almost over. Where did the time go? I have received many blessings. At the top of my grateful list is the love of family and friends. The year 2017 brought its own troubles, joys, and mixed emotions. I welcomed the birth of a beautiful new grandson, born in February. My daughter moved to another city, but not too far away. My dog died in the fall. Although she is deeply missed, I know she is no longer in pain. And finally, in 2017, my health got better thanks to better food choices.
This has been my most successful year as an author. I published my fifth suspense novel and started on my sixth. I had two national promotions this year, which resulted in thousands of downloads of e-books. Many readers came back to purchase other books I have written. As well as the US, I had many sales in Great Britain, Australia, Canada, and India. I won third place in a local short story contest and became a finalist for a national contest. Still waiting to hear where I placed. Over all, writing (my favorite thing to do) kept me very busy.
It takes a village: I am forever thankful for my writer’s group who helped make my writing more polished and crisper. If you have purchased any of my books this year, thank you very much. And if you posted a review on Amazon, a BIG thank you from the bottom of my heart. To an author, reviews are like receiving applause for a job well done and also helps to sell more books.
I hope the coming year is a happy and prosperous year for you. Be sure to have some “me” time where you curl up in a chair and read inspiring and entertaining books. If only in the imagination, books offer travel and adventure. You are also introduced to some amazing characters, some you’ll like and some you’ll loathe. I got books for Christmas. I hope you did too.
Peace and good will,
