The New Year Cometh

Wow that was quick!!! With Christmas over, new years in just over a day, where did it all go?

I feel this way every year, as if time is just whizzing by, and I need to take a moment to look back over the events that were the biggest.. so here goes…

2013 – in review

Finished up another school year in the spring.

Taught a round of summer school for students who needed a bit more help passing their state test. Now, for most of you I know that sounds a bit anticlimactic, but I assure you… from the teacher’s standpoint, it is the one part of the job I am truly going to miss – making a difference in some kid’s life, even if they don’t want you to or realize at this particular moment how important it really is.

A couple of weeks of summer vacation before class started.. oh yeah – and I wrote a book!!!

School started, chaos reigned, got my book published WHOOP WHOOP.. and I found out how much real publishers do for their authors =(

I wrote the second book – in for a penny, in for a pound, right?… wow that was fun!!!

Got busy working on advertising… publicity pushing is hard work… did I really sign up for this?

Thanksgiving break – now your talking!!!

A few more weeks of school in the semester – oh and they are releasing my second book. Yes, I really like this author thing =)

New grandbaby – and its A GIRL!!! Sweet hello little one, welcome to my madness =)

They released my second book – Christmas holiday –  I got to meet even more amazing authors and fans – OMG what will next year hold in store?

Only time will tell…

 

See my interview with Bridgette – up now WHOOP WHOOP

Christmas Holiday

I hope that everyone out there has been enjoying their Christmas Holiday. I know that we have. In addition to getting a new baby (WOOT), my sister was able to make it in for a visit. She lives about 400 miles away, so we only get to see her once a year, or less, depending how things go.

In reality, there is only one thing I don’t like about this time of year – it’s freaking cold!!! I tell myself every winter that I need to move further south. I mean, I live in the desert of West Texas, so if it gets below 50 we all have our heavy coats on. So when we start seeing the 30’s, its almost unbearable.

Of course, I say that and I know alot of you are thinking I am nuts. I know this because I have friends all over the world, and some of them live in places where the 30’s would be considered warm. To all of you, I am truly in awe that you are able to endure it.

Anyways, since I am off for another week for the winter break, I will be making a few more posts, and thinking about getting back to those writing styles and questions that I have been rolling around in my head. Until then, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone and may you all have a great NEW YEAR!!!
