Well, here we are! We've survived the holidays! I actually really enjoy the holidays, but have to admit, I get a bit down in the dumps when its my year to work them. Its only fair, of course, but being human I tend to allow myself to sink into banal human emotions like envy and self pity! BUT, when the new year rolls around, always feel invigorated by the possibilites that lay ahead, and this year is no different. I was blessed in the middle of December with a new contract from HQN books, and an invitation to write a Christmas novella in an anthology with Stephanie Laurens and Nicola Cornick, whose books I truly adore!d
But more tidbits about the new series to come. All I will tell you is that it incorporates many of my loves, and that the books will be just straight romance between the hero and heroine--no over lapping mystery and such (although I loved writing that in the Brethren Guardian series). I am returning to my roots of deep, emotional romance, and I can't wait!
I've made my new years resolutions, and mostly they consist of writing goals, and they are to keep my website updated....Lord preserve us, I am SO bad at that, and also to keep up with this blog. I plan to be a bit more interactive with my readers as well. I also have resolved to stop and enjoy the release of my books, something I have been much too busy to do as of late!
I am excited about the new year, and all it might bring. I'm sooo excited about the new series I am going to undertake. And even though at this point I am only there in my mind, I am so excited to be back in the lovely North Yorkshire Moors writing my series. In fact, I am there now, writing the Christmas novella. Here's what it looks like where I am!
Isn't it lovely? Imagine being the lady, or in the case of my series, the duchess of such a house!
Well, back to my imaginery world, sipping tea by the fire with a strong, imposing black haired, green eyed duke staring intently upon me as he undresses me silently--and thoroughly--with his bedroom eyes!
All the best for a wonderful 2012!!!
happily forever after
