I can't believe a new year is almost here. I have come so far as an author from where I started in 2020. In the beginning, all I wanted to do was see if I could get my book, Killer Deception, published. I never intended to go any further than that, but people or readers have been so encouraging and keep asking when I'm going to publish my next one. So, I decided to throw caution to the wind and see if I could make 'a living' at being a writer. It has honestly been something I've always wanted to do....write for a living. I have to say that I have throughly enjoyed writing these stories, creating new characters, and weaving story plots together. I truly believe that this is what I was always meant to do, and hopefully, I will be able to continue to write more stories and publish them for others to read. I'm excited to see what next year will bring and how much further my writing journey will go. So, Merry Christmas to everyone and I wish you all a happy new year!
Until next time....
I am so excited that Christmastime is finally here! I always take the week before Christmas off so I can really concentrate on my writing. Maybe, one day I won't have to do that anymore. I've sent my Christmas cards, the holiday baking is done, and all the decorations are up. There's just something about Christmas that you can get at any other time of the year. Maybe it's spending time with my family, watching Christmas movies, and not having a million things on my mind. Who knows? Anyway, I've had three new subscribers to my newsletter and I am very excited and grateful. If you haven't signed up then you are missing out. I always start the year with a book giveaway, which is right around the corner and I select one winner at the end of January. My newsletter comes out around the 4th of every month and I also send out special holiday emails and such. There's so much to do as an Indie author. I try to be as efficient as I can about it, but there's always something slipping through. But no matter how much there is to do I always go back to the enjoyment and satisfaction I get from writing. It is still the thing I want to do and never feels like work to me. Anyway, I guess that's it for now.
Until next time...
