Happy 2013! :) The year of an attitude of gratitude.
Thursday, January 3, 2013
Well, edits are turned in for It's a Sweet Life, my Coffeeshop Coven prequel that releases on 1/18. And...for those of you who don't follow my Facebook page, I'm happy to announce that Siren has accepted The Denim Dom (Tony's story) and the contract has been signed and returned. I don't have a release date yet, but look for it in March of this year.
(Yes, I finally got Tony's story written!)
New Year's day was pretty melancholy for us because it marked the one-year anniversary of our dear friend's passing due to brain cancer. I spent it working on edits and watching The Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy. I didn't want to see the news or hear one word about fiscal cliffs or anything else.
I quit making New Year's resolutions a long time ago. But something I saw pass through my Facebook feed a few days ago stuck with me, making a "gratitude jar," where you write down every day something good that happened, no matter how small, so you could go back through it at the end of the year.
I decided that this year, I'm going to use my Witches' Datebook that I get every year and write down, every day, something/s good. Already I have that we gathered with friends for New Year's Eve, I signed a contract, finished edits, received a great review from AllRomanceEbooks.com for Bleacke's Geek, and a few other things. Just looking back on the past couple of DAYS makes me feel good. I'm sure after a few weeks and months, when I have blue days, I'll be able to look back and smile and remember to feel gratitude.
What are you grateful for? What have you decided to do this year for yourself to better your life, no matter how small?
