This month, I’d like to say I’ll be going to a ritzy chalet
in Aspen or attending back-to-back fabulous holiday parties, but most likely I’ll
be curled up in my favorite chair in front of the fireplace reading a good book.
As I look back on the last year, I’m amazed and forever
grateful for your kindness and positive feedback. Your e-mails and tweets mean
so much to me. Thanks to you, my books are now sold worldwide and this
California girl couldn’t be happier.
2012 was a busy year! In January, Home Ice was released, closely
followed by Submersed. February turned out to be a big month for
Home Ice as The Little Book That Could climbed its way into the Top 50 in
Contemporary Romance at Amazon! I was chosen as the Polka Dot Banner’s
featured author of the month and then my erotic short story Watch Me was
This summer, the Olympics kept us all entertained with
plenty of eye candy (thank you, Ryan Lochte!) and in August I started selling my books in India.
These last few months of fall, the NHL lockout has affected
hockey fans everywhere and I have sorely missed my main inspiration. Thanks to the wonderful community on Pinterest I can still get my hockey fix and trade "Stop the Lockout!" pins with fellow pinners.
As for next year...I’m excited to announce that my books will be sold in the U.K. for NOOK at Barnes & Noble...I’m hoping to have my titles available on
Smashwords...and I plan on releasing my next hockey-themed romance (fingers
crossed) in early 2013. (Phew! I'd better get busy!)
None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for you and your
continued support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So, let’s raise our glasses to those we’ve lost this year,
the family and friends we’ve gained and the memories we made.
Wherever you are in your corner of the world, Happy Holidays and may you find
everything under the tree you were hoping for.
