I really can’t believe 2022 is coming to a close. Maybe it’s because so much has happened! My family was blessed to take two big vacations, and I hit a milestone birthday (40). It was a year full of fun and adventure. Also some stress, my youngest had an appendectomy in February which added most of the gray hair I’m now coloring (haha).
I’m so so grateful for the wonderful editors, publishers, writing friends, and my inimitable agent Dawn Dowdle for keeping me moving forward. My cowboy trilogy found a home and so did my standalone mistaken identity book. I had the most fun at Chicago Spring Fling and met some amazing people. AND! With Kara Leigh Miller at Anaiah Press, my entire four-book Home to Harmony series released in an 11-month span.
Since 2018, I’ve kept track of my monthly word counts so I can see how much I’m writing a year. I wrote a little less this year–175,000 words–but I am so excited about the new projects included in those counts.
My word of the year for 2023 is: FOCUS.
My goal is to finish writing the series I’m sending to my agent in January and start work on a few ideas I have for inspirational, romantic suspense! I’d love to manifest more contracts and more books coming out. I’ll let you know all about it!!
Thank you readers for finding my stories and coming back with each new book. I am so grateful for your support.
