2012 was a roller coaster year for me. On the up side, I released two books and four short stories. I’m wrapping up edits on the final book in my trilogy and look forward to sharing JUST BREATHE with readers on January 8, 2013.
On the “Life sucks” side of things, I lost my dad to cancer in July. I battled intermittent bouts of depression. Debilitating self-esteem issues continue to haunt me.
It’s clear that some things need to change in order for me to be a happy person, and I’m the only one who can make those changes.
In taking a critical look at my year, I’ve come to the following conclusions:
- I spend too much time online and not enough on writing.
- I need to start focusing on myself and stop worrying about everyone else.
- I am ready to be the best selling author I think I can be.
This will be my last personal post on “Life Is but a Dream.” Once the JUST BREATHE tour (January 20 – February 20) concludes, I’m shutting down this blog permanently.
Starting January 1, 2013, I will focus solely on writing. I want people to take me seriously as an author, so I guess it’s time to pull up the big girl undies, quit whining like a bitch, and get to work. Talking about books won’t sell books. I need to write them.
It’s time for me to grow up.
To everyone who’s hung out with me here the last few years, THANK YOU. I appreciate you all so much and wish you the best in 2013 and beyond.
