Can you believe it? Two days left of this crazy busy year? 2008 has been wonderful in so many ways and the blessings continue to mound. I hope it's been good to you too.
One note of thanks goes to the many fabulous friends I've met or bumped into here this year. Thank you for following my posts and my writing career. Thank you for stopping to answer my questions or leave a comment on some of my posts. Thanks for making me laugh with me when I needed it most and for your constant encouragement. It's meant the world to me.
Looking back on 2008, I have no complaints. Family is doing well, we're all healthy, kids are in college and we're all gainfully employed. We also managed to slip in a few much needed mini vacations this past summer too. I'll admit though that I've spent the large majority of the time editing/proofreading and getting the second book in the Sam Harper Crime Mystery series, "The Devil Can Wait" to press. It was released on November 3, and thanks to Pump Up Your Book Promotion
, I kicked things off with a month-long virtual book tour that ended on December 23.
If you are learning about this tour for the first time, no problem! All the archived links to the tour are available on my Prose and Musing blog
. There you'll find links to interviews, articles and reviews.
So what's up for 2009? Much of the same, I hope. I'll continue to work outside the home and at night, work on the next book in the series. I have several talks lined up in the coming months to local book clubs and I'll continue to admin the Murder by 4
authors' blog too. We've had some fabulous guest bloggers in our first year. I hope you'll have a chance to stop by and pay us a visit soon.
I also have a few things up my sleeve that I'll announce in a few weeks. Hope you'll join in the fun.
