So Long 2013, Hello 2014

The New Year is just about here and like many people I've been reflecting on how my year went.

2013 was another tough year for me personally. I’ve had to deal with more family problems; even though it’s been an emotional rollercoaster I’ve kept my head up and remained positive. Heading into 2014, I’m hoping things will finally turn around for the better for my family.

While my personal life wasn’t so great, my professional life flourished.

I released the fourth volume in the Westmore series and I got started on volume 5, which I hope to release soon. I also got the rights to my first book Going Home Again back and re-released it through self-publishing.

Now that 2014 is coming, I’ve got a list of writing goals I hope to accomplish.

• Release Westmore volume 5
At the moment I'm aiming for a March date, although it is subject to change.

• Finish my paranormal romance novel.
I've been working on it for a while, but with my other books it got neglected. This year I want to concentrate on it and finally release it.

• Start Westmore volume 6
That's right there's going to be a sixth volume and I hope everybody's ready for more drama.

• Offer Guest Posts and Author Interviews
This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, but with work and other things I haven't had the time. But I do want to help out fellow authors and for anyone interested stay tuned for more information.

Taking a Break From Writing

I don't know about anybody else, but when the holidays roll around I find it difficult to get any work done.

Maybe it’s the stress of the holidays that’s causing it, but for the last couple of weeks I’ve hardly got any work done. I had a goal of trying to finish Westmore 5 by Christmas, now it seems like I won’t be reaching my goal.

Although I'm disappointed my goal won't be accomplished, I realize maybe it's for the best. My mind's been clogged lately and I've decided to take a break and enjoy the holidays. The time off will help me relax and recharge my batteries. Then when the new year arrives, I'll be rested and ready to get back to writing.
