Happy 2012 to all my blog followers!
I’m so excited for what this new year will bring, but I have to admit I’m sad to see 2011 go.
This is the year I got some partial and full requests from agents, set out to publish my first book, created my own publishing company, started this blog, and most importantly, gave birth to my sweet little baby girl.
(I just want to eat her up!)
My debut novel had a wonderful response on my two-day free promotion and it’s been selling steadily ever since. It may be just a handful of copies a day, but I only needed an ebook a day to cover all my book start-up costs. So I’m so pleased that people are actually reading my book out there! I also got another nice review on Amazon that you can all read here.
But sometimes it’s not about what you gained in a year but what you kept. I’m happy to report that all who matter to me in this world are alive and strong and this may have been the first year in a while that I haven’t lost one of my furry little critters. I truly hope 2012 will be as great as 2011. I have my sequel to look forward to, my sister/best friend will be having her first child very soon, and I get to keep watching my five-year old and baby take in the wonders around them everyday.
Anyway, it’s important to notice when you had a fantastic year and to appreciate the year without tears, since life rarely gifts you those. I’m so appreciative to have all the blessings in my life right now and I hope 2012 brings you all as much peace and joy.
Thank you, 2011. Bring it on, 2012!
