So what are your plans for tonight? My plan is the same plan I’ve had for the last 14 years or so. I’m going to spend time snuggled up with my husband, watching telly and just waiting for midnight. When we’ve kissed and the fireworks have finished I’ll go to bed.
I know, it’s not a particularly thrilling sounding tradition but I like it. I’ve never been a big partier for New Year, it is the passing of time, another night, nothing terribly special to me. But I do enjoy looking back over the years previous and I enjoy wondering what the future might hold.
2011 has been pretty awesome. I’ve had 19 titles released this year. Now that’s kind of mind blowing! I’ve met more authors than I could have imagined and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’ve been mentioned on National telly (oh yes indeedy, thanks Vanessa!) and had a print novel released. Me, the short story writer! I keep telling people that it doesn’t really count. Tempting Rendezvous (US, UK) is actually 3 seperate stories written over a three year time period but still, there it is, a novel, however I wrote it!
I’ve deepened friendships, outed my erotica writing side to my vicar, spent a lovely holiday in Scarborough, my favourite place in the world. I’ve spent more time in London than I could have dreamed I would and made a double visit to the lovely Lincoln. I was delighted to find myself amongst a whole host of steampunk folks one of those times, that was a real sight to behold!
2011 has had some brilliant highs so I’m looking forward to even more in 2012. I wish you all there very best for the New Year. Health, happiness and most of all love. I hope you’ll continue to visit me here and I promise to do my best to entertain you! If there’s anything you’d specificly like to see then let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
So enjoy the festivities and…
