I know I haven't posted much this year but it's been a whirlwind year as I have gotten back into doing events and writing books. In case you missed it, The Ties of Time, the second in the Kelly Watson YA Paranormal mystery series, finally published in print. I'm awaiting my small order that I placed last week. No fretting though the books will get here when they get here. If you are still in need of a gift, remember books do make great gifts. No guarantees as to when they will ship but ebooks are always available and if you purchase The Ties of Time ebook and send me a copy of your receipt, you will receive a free ebook of Finally Home.
I've also been busy crocheting and creating items for all the events I've been doing including my market bags or library book tote bags or whatever you decide to use them for and have added several new colors to the bookworm colors for a total of 24 colors available now. I found an angel ornament pattern I like and have been busy with the angels until recently.
I have started Dark Truths, the third in the Kelly Watson YA paranormal mystery series, but haven't worked on it much of late but that will be one of my first projects in the new year to get that series completed. I will also be working on Imogene: Innocence Lost in the upcoming year. Those are my two goals for next year, writing wise that is. I'm also making a resolution to post more on my blog and I'm starting a mailchimp campaign so that my followers will get updates as I post them. A few changes, hopefully in the right direction.
I've also become a member of the YA Author Rendezvous group and have started following several of those folks (more to come, I'm sure) and have found that the group is such a wonderful supportive group with loads of information available. There will be more from this group too as I'll share postings and other information as available. If you haven't read Kimberly Readnour's series, I recommend it even though as of now I've only read the first one - Visions. There are almost 80 authors in this group and we are all about promoting YA authors. If you get a chance to check out the website, I highly recommend that you just pop over for a browse. You never know what new author you will discover.
My biggest announcement is that I'm going to be a first-time grandmother next year. My youngest son and his fiancée are expecting in May and they are planning on tying the knot in February. So I'm gaining a daughter and new grandbaby within the first part of the year.
Below are the covers and other items I've been working on.
