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

Blog Review – the First Word Is In!!!

I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself. My first blogged review is UP!!!    http://msme28reviews.blogspot.com/2013/11/review-new-life-life-of-recovery-by.html is the link, and it is 4 stars WOOT!!!

I realize many people would be disappointed at not getting 5 on their first try, but getting 4 on my the first blog review for my first novel ever just makes me so ecstatic – especially when I will be the first to tell you, Book 1 – Life of Recovery is not the best one in the series.

I think it is good, don’t get me wrong, but  as it is dark and full of background information, almost like a prequel to the rest of the set. And I know they get better as they go…

Now I cannot wait to see what others have to say about this book, as well as the ones that will be following. Thank you so much Myra for reading and posting this for me, I know being the first on something like this is tough, as there are so many authors out there now, all wanting to get their books read and reviewed, and I truly appreciate your time.

I realize this may qualify as the worst blog post ever, but I have to go now… I need a tissue…

Much love,

Sam
