Hard to believe. Where did the time go?
But, oh, what a difference a year makes. When my husband, Patrick, bought me a Kindle a few years back little did I know that it would change my life, rediscovering my love of reading. After two years of marathon reading, I finally came up for air and was struck with an epiphany. I wanted to write a romance novel and determinedly set out to learn the craft. I signed up for some online classes and buried myself in library books and started my manuscript for Protecting Rose.
I went into total book mode and for the next year, I spent every spare moment learning and writing. It became my obsession, taking nearly a year to write and edit.
Imagine my joy and excitement when two out of the three publishers where I submitted, Protecting Rose, wanted to publish it. Then, to top off the year, it was chosen as a finalist in the 2011 Launching a Star Contest. Life is good!
I just added, Protecting Rose, to my bookshelf. Whoo Hoo! 2011 has been a wild ride and I'm looking forward to seeing what 2012 brings.
My goal for 2012 is to complete my second manuscript. I'm about a third of the way into my first draft. I'm also thinking about trying my hand at a couple Novellas. They seem to be pretty popular on the Kindle.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
