For the record, I hate anything clichéd but here I am taking stock of 2013 and looking forward to 2014. Aren't we all?
2013 was a bit of a roller coaster for me. If you would have told me on 12/31/12 that I'd be resigning from my job and living with my lover by 12/31/13, I would have passed out from shock. But here we are. I've been here with him for 4 months now and it's mostly been domestic bliss :) I'm job hunting and hoping I don't have to move from the area just when I'm finally getting what I've dreamed of for nearly three years.
He and I will celebrate our third anniversary on 1/17. I still reflect back to that simple coffee date with disbelief that all of this could have started there. Just like Mountains Wanted was born from a simple conversation over pizza about what if I proved erotica could be realistic and engaging and well-written? But I think both of those things were meant to happen just as they did.
I have learned so much from him and our relationship, and I have gathered the courage and the drive to write again. I always credit him and the 4+ years I spent blogging on the adult site for inspiring me to write. I published two novels in 2013 and am working hard on my next for release in early 2014.
I can't even begin to fathom the wild things that might be in store for me in the new year. I'm hoping for at least two books, a new job and a trip to Italy. I'm hoping for a finalized divorce and part of me dares to dream of an engagement ring on my finger by this time next year. But I'm not holding my breath. LOL
Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year whether it was by reading my books, leaving reviews, following me on social media or just being my friend. A simple thank you doesn't seem like nearly enough to express my gratitude, but words are the best tools I have at my disposal. Just know that I wish you and yours all the best in the new year.
All my love,
