everyone, I thought I’d post a personal blog today. All about me and what I’ve
been doing. Not writing, heaven forbid, writing –
what is that? I know, excuses, excuses. Here's what I've been doing instead?
the data on income and expenses for tax purposes. Always a fun adventure. NOT!
But a necessary evil. The good news, 2017 ended up being a positive year for
sales – no red ink.

This month’s Question is - What steps have you taken or plan
to take to put a schedule in place for
your writing and publishing?
My answer: I’m always working on a plan. Setting goals are and always has been an essential part of my life. The first thing I
did this New Year’s Day was to write out
a definite set of goals and a plan to achieve them.
This year was a wild one, but in
the end, several goals were achieved. A
book was published, and we are now living
on the coast with a lovely view of the ocean. A dream come true. The journey
here was a bit crazy, but not all paths run straight. Still, we are blessed!
While I was absent
most of the time from blogging and social media, I did manage a few posts, and I did my best to keep up with friends. I
know I’ve missed some critical changes in
many lives, but I hope to catch up and will try my best to be more active this
I feel that it’s
important to acknowledge several of the folks that never lost faith in me this last year. Most significant is Denise Covey, my
partner in crime at the WEP. I may be speaking out of turn, but the relationship
that we’ve developed over the years proved invaluable this year with all the
emergencies, travel plans & moves, and all the chaos that filled 2017.
Thank you, my
friend! I love you dearly!
And I value the creativity and
artistic input of NilanjanaBose andOlga Godim.
We are now an unbeatable team! Thank you, Denise, Nila,
and Olga! I
am so proud to be part of such a unique writing team!
I also need to
thank Susan Swiderski, Michael Di Gesu, Chrys
Fey. Without them, The Snowman
would not have been released in 2017. But more important than just support for
the writing these amazing individuals
were there when the personal got to be
too much! Thank you!
Thank you all
for always being there when I needed input, editing, and hand holding! A special Thank You for all those who've read and commented on my blog posts. Your support has inspired my faith and keeps me striving for the possible!
May the New
Year help you reach the goals you've set!
