2014 Resolved. Or, My Year is Booked


This past autumn, I experienced an Epiphany. In 2014, I would clear my authorly schedule of all obligations and write. Just me, my computer and time to plot and scheme my way through two new manuscripts, followed by a serious and prayerful consideration of future projects. (With my trusty crockpot simmering in the kitchen to placate my starving family.) Yes, it was a beautiful resolution for 2014.

2014 Inspiration. "What is it, Precious?"

Can't you just hear Divine laughter?

Within one week, I'd signed a
publishing contract with multiple deadlines, allowed myself to be volunteered for a major promotional undertaking, and realized that I must prepare two additional manuscripts--spin-offs of the Books of the Infinite series.

I'm dizzied just considering my schedule (did I mention the full-time day job?), but I'm also elated and eager to test the brave new hybrid-author world.

Stay tuned, and if you're following me on Facebook, be prepared for LOTS of posts involving...caffeine!

Blessings, dear everyone, and have an amazing New Year's!

I've learned too well never to make plans. Something always comes up and changes them.

Happy New Years and enjoy your caffeine in many forms - coffee, chocolate, tea, chocolate and did I mention chocolate???

Oh yeah! Chocolate is my favorite form of caffeine. Just finished some Lindt to help me through a book I needed to finish tonight for a review due on Tuesday.

And it goes great with tea or coffee!
