Hello 2014! You look so beautiful!

I confess - my writing cave has been very empty lately. I've been overwhelmed with personal stuff. Sick kids, a death in the family, and a house full of noisy workers every day - it's been busy.

Today I sat down and wrote 1,000 words in two hours. It felt good. I felt like I was back home after being away for a long, long time. Not many people understand why it is an obsession, something I need to do to feel complete. (My husband says I get crabby when I don't write.) I miss my characters. I miss my readers. No one told me the writing biz wasn't all rainbows and unicorns. It's hard. It's grueling. I've had some really bad days and some amazing, out-of-this-world great days. I wouldn't change any of it. I've loved every moment and every hour. How can I not when it was a dream come true?

Now that the holidays are over and life is getting back to normal, I hope to delve back into things. I might be absent from social media while my characters demand all of my time or I might overwhelm everyone with post after post (just tell me when to stop). Whichever it is, I can't wait for 2014 and all that it will bring. I promise to get Cash and my new book into your hands or onto your devices as quickly as humanly possible. (Ryder has been itching to get some more attention too.) A big hug to everyone for supporting me, sticking beside me, and encouraging me since April 2013. I hope to continue this wild ride called writing and publishing if you'll stick beside me. Happy New Year (a few days late)!! May it be the best ever...
