Yea it's a new year 2013. Those of you who are extremely superstitious of the number thirteen just take a deep breath. That's it, in and out, everything will be fine.
Two of my brothers were born on the thirteenth, even had the nerve to be born on a Friday! My husband moved to Boston on the 13th and we met a few months later.
So I have great hopes for the year 2013. My husband and I have several projects we are hoping to get published this year, We've had some success in self publishing, my romances, his historical fiction among other things. Toward the end of last year I published my first cozy mystery, "The Pink Lady." At the moment it is only available on Amazon but one of my goals is to publish it in other formats as well. I'll have a short story published in a magazine and have another romance novel in the works as well as another mystery.
The Tucson Festival of Books is coming in March, one of my favorite times of the year. The workshops are great, I always learn something. And of course, a chance to spend the weekend talking books, both reading and writing, is not to be missed.
So don't let 2013 scare you, look it in the eye and smile. It's going to be a great year, a lucky year.
