Looking back on 2014
It’s time once again for me to look back on the year as it comes to an end. One thing I can say about 2014: There’s never been a dull moment.
It started out frantic with revving up to release my first novel while finishing my second and starting my third. And in March, the day I feared might never happen came to fruition. My first launch party was a huge success.
I’d dreamed of someday signing the famous bathroom wall at Mystery Lovers Bookshop. It finally happened.
Then I spent a few months learning to be a published author, attending book signings and conferences.
Soon I was gearing up for the launch of my SECOND book! At the same time, I was finishing the third one.
The highs were tempered with lows, namely my mom’s health issues. My goal for 2014 was finding balance. I think the Universe wanted to make sure I kept things in perspective.
The second launch party was incredible, too.
And as if that weren’t enough, I hit the USA Today bestseller list!
Then there was the trip to the west coast and Bouchercon at the Beach.
, that is. I may have played hooky
a little too much. But I couldn’t resist the sun and sand in November! Long Beach, California
On my way home, I stopped in
New Mexico for a vacation with my BFF, Leta.
As 2014 comes to a close, I have yet another book coming out…
…my first book is now available in audio…
…and more adventures on the horizon. I think it may be a little hard to top this year, though!
