Don't You Just Love A New Year?

I love a new year. It's a fresh new chance, you know?

Many people say the same thing every year; they say, "I'm going to travel." Or they say, "I'm going to lose weight." I say the same things every year too. I even tend to say I'm going to lose weight, just like everyone else - but from there my resolutions are usually a little different from the people around me.

"I'm going to read more," because I love to read, but I rarely find time for it. "I'm going to knit more," because although I'm pretty good at it, I still can't follow a pattern to save my life since I lose count of stitches and rows constantly. Because of this, I mostly knit little things like scarves, cowls, hats, etc. Someday I'd like to tackle a baby blanket or something, though I suppose it will have to be quite plain in order for me to keep up with it.

"I'm going to write more."

Every year I say it, and every year I fail to do it. I failed to blog, because I didn't find the time. I failed to write my first novel for most of my life - though I started countless ones, countless times. But now that I've done it? I really did write more.

In one month, I wrote my first novel, and within a few short weeks, To Love A Selkie was on virtual e-book shelves at

With 2013 looming before me, I still plan to write more - but this time, I'm giving myself a head start. My second novel is expected to release in February, followed by its sequel sometime in the summer. Soon enough, this second novel will have become a series of six (or more).

In the meantime, as 2012 draws to a close, I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and good luck on your resolutions.

Happy reading!


  1. Hi! I love this site! I'm a writer myself, so I can relate to your wanting to write more. I wanted to check out your e-book, but when I looked up "To Love A Selkie", there were no e-copies available. Hmmm. I'm not sure what's going on with that, but I hope you'll be writing more novels in the future! Writing books is like having babies. A writer can't really rest until the whole book is written and published. I know from first hand experience. Keep on writing! It's a gift that not everyone has!

    1. Thanks for the interest, and for wanting to check out To Love A Selkie! Actually, the reason that book is no longer available is because it's now the first half of a longer novel - Selkie, which is the first book in my Selkie Trilogy. I'd like to invite you to check those books out for sure - I'm still totally in love with those characters and that story. Just click on "My Books" in the navigation bar at the top of this blog!
