What’s in a year?
A lot I hope!
I saw the New Year in on Tuesday night with a group of friends. We went out for dinner. Of course the big topic around the table was New Year resolutions.
I’m starting a new stage in my life this year. I’ve moved cities, I’m living in an area of NZ I’ve never lived before, and I’ve been blessed to be able to build a new house in a dream location, set in vineyards, overlooking the sea. So I’m feeling pretty contented.
I’m usually a very goal orientated person so it was quite interesting that I decided I didn’t want to ruin my contentment with things like must do, have to, etc
However, I did decide that I WANTED to write more and eat less. That’s the limit to the goals I’ve set myself this year.
The writing more is because I have so many stories in my head at the moment that it’s getting crowded, and because I have a few books under contract. I have three books to write by July this year – busy!!!!
Plus I have three books being released by June this year, A Kiss of Lies coming January 14th, Invitation to Passion in late March, and A Promise of More in April.
It’s going to be a busy year, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
I hope whatever resolutions you’ve made help you with your dreams for the year but don’t stress you out. After all, if I’m healthy and happy, as are my friends and family, I know the year will be okay.
Take care and I hope you all have a wonderful 2014!
A Kiss of Lies – January 14 2014
Desperate to escape her abusive past, Sarah Cooper disguises herself as a governess in the employ of Christian Trent, Earl of Markham, the man who, long ago, she fantasized about marrying. Despite the battle scars that mar his face, Sarah finds being near Christian rekindles her infatuation. A governess, however, has no business in the arms of an earl, and as she accompanies Christian on his voyage home, Sarah must resist her intense desires—or risk revealing her dangerous secrets.
One of the renowned Libertine Scholars, Christian Trent once enjoyed the company of any woman he chose. But that was before the horrors of Waterloo, his wrongful conviction of a hideous crime, and his forcible removal from England. Far from home and the resources he once had, Christian believes the life he knew--and any chance of happiness--is over ... until his ward’s governess sparks his heart back to life, and makes him remember the man he used to be. Now Christian is determined to return to England, regain his honor, and win the heart of the woman he has come to love.
