And We're Off!

Happy New Year!

I hope your year has been a happy and healthy one so far. Yes I know we are only two weeks in but being a "list" person I have started the year with my share of "to-do's which vary from items like: shred old papers and files, clean out my closets to more important and thought -provoking tasks such as updating my will; consider long term health care, etc. Each task carries significant weight, some more than others, but still these are things I want to complete this year. There will always be more to do so I figure I might as well get a jump on some things.

I have lowered my to-be-read book list for 2024 in order to give myself time to finish my fourth novel in The Enchanted Blood Line series. Yes, I promised myself this would be the year I would finally get it out into the world. Tentatively titled Blood and Ashes it features all of my favorite vampires and a few mere mortals as well. At any time the title could change but for the moment Blood and Ashes will do. For those of you who have read my previous novels perhaps a title jumps out at you. If so, please let me know.

I am also working on a novella titled Annie Frost. I hope to share her adventures with you this year as well. Yes, I have put snippets of both pieces in my newsletters but my goal is to complete both for you dear reader. My editor Eleanore will be very busy! I am thinking Fall of 2024 to launch both of them.

Aside from my other "to-do" items like eat healthier, exercise more, I have added a few unusual ones such as complete the daily Connections puzzle, finish the word play puzzle, have one friend or neighbor over for dinner each week; get involved with volunteering, go on more adventures with my husband. Listen more, be there more for others.

I ended the year reading Tom Lake by Ann Patchett, Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll and Sun Damage by Sabine Durrant. All excellent novels.

I would love to know how you are doing. What adventures you have planned for this year as well as some of your hopes and wishes.

Thank you for being here. Happy New Year!
