First, let me extend my warmest wishes to all my blog-followers, readers and friends for a very blessed and happy New Year.
Lots has happened to me in 2010. I've learned a lot about not only myself the author, but myself the person. I've made great friends. I've lost some too. I've learned trust is a shaky thing—and online, it's nothing you can count on. Still, the good times out-weigh the bad ones. I look forward to making more friends in 2011.
I give a lot of thanks on this day. To my readers for sticking with me when I make a mistake in a story, and have provided me with the constant support to move forward. To my editors, Maria, Toni, Sandi and all the great gals over at Cobblestone who've held my hand, and at times bashed me upside my pointed head to make my story better and my career stronger. To my Cover Artists, who are too numerous to mention by name, for my excellent book covers. To the Mother Ship who, to this day, reminds me that just because I've gotten praise, being a writer is a humble profession where what you think you know is a lot less than what you will learn. To my Publishers, Cobblestone Press, Eirelander Publishing, Liquid Silver Books and Whiskey Creek Press Torrid for their interest in my books and their continued support.
2011 will be a challenge, one I look forward to. If you haven't heard, I've picked up two new publishers for 2011. Decadent Publishing and Breathless Press. And for those of you waiting for the next Kingdom of Stars story or the third installment in the Hellfire Club, they are coming.
So, here's to 2010!
Best to all of you!
