2018: Looking Ahead
Happy New Year! We made it! There were times in 2017 when I wasn't so sure. But here we are with a fresh year ahead of us.
I'm excited about 2018! I have two (yes, TWO) new Zoe Chambers Mysteries coming out this year. Uneasy Prey will be available later this week for pre-orders and the official cover reveal will be Thursday on Dru's Book Musings Blog! The release is scheduled for March 27.
The 7th Zoe Chambers Mystery (working title: Cry Wolf) should be coming out sometime in September if all goes according to plan.
This will be the first time since 2014 that I've released two books in the same year. Back then I had no clue what I was doing or what I was in for. Not sure I do now either!
I always start out the year thinking I'm not going to travel as much as I did last year. This year is no different. I do know I'll be making my annual treks to Bethesda, Maryland, for Malice Domestic and to Aztec, New Mexico. I have a road trip planned in early April to Virginia to teach at the Writer's Project Runway Conference. And I'm looking forward to going back to Florida for the first time since...1984?...to attend Bouchercon in St. Petersburg in early September! I've even planned to arrive there early so I can enjoy a few vacation days to take in the sights and maybe connect with some family members who live in the area.
You can keep track of my appearances on my website.
During the time I'm not traveling, I have more books to write. And I have the usual on-going goals to eat healthier (darned chocolate addiction!) and exercise more and spend more quality time with my dearest Hubby.
I also hope 2018 brings opportunities to meet more of my readers in person. That's always ALWAYS the best part of this job.
Wishing you all compassion, love, and grace in the New Year. And lots and lots of good reading!
