I will always remember 2013 as the year I became a published author and a Line Editor for Breathless Press! I have seven titles published and selling for BP and two fast tracked with them for next year. I can’t wait to get going on them. It has been my dream since I was eleven to be a writer, back in the day when I carried around a folder and a notebook and my trusty pen. Times they have changed for gone is my pen, and my notebook is now a laptop.
My mother, Joyce, was my biggest supporter of my writing. You know, I never knew that she read any of my work. When she was alive I asked her several times to read my stories, but she always put it off. It wasn’t until very recently that my Aunt Elaine told me about them sneaking into my room and reading my notebooks while I was away. My mother made it clear that they had to remember which notebook was on top, so I wouldn’t suspect their snooping. If she had only told me then that she liked my writing back then, I wouldn’t have felt a bit cheated at her never seeing me published. I’m just very grateful that my aunt came forward to tell me how proud Mom was of my writing.
I have so many things to be thankful for this year. A husband who loves me and supports my work. Fur babies, who are getting really old, but who never fail to get my attention when I’m trying to write. And a generous and family-oriented publishing house that I wouldn’t change for anything.
My resolutions for this year include the usual weight loss, exercising and diet plans(that I will be lucky to follow for a month!).and cutting back on chocolate due to a family history of diabetes. Yuck! I also want to add posting on my blog once a day and upping my promo skills. What are your resolutions for this year? I’d love to hear about them.
