Well, it’s been a while since I blogger for real, I mean something other than a blog hop notification, so here goes. I am starting out the New Year with some major differences in my life. I’ve given notice at my day job. My last day of work with them will be the 12th of January. I wanted to wait until after Christmas to give my notice. The weight of the world lifted off my shoulders the day I put the notice in. The next day I got my hair cut. Something completely different, and with it came a better attitude. You see, I haven’t written a single word in any of my works in progress in over 4 months. Somehow, and I don’t know how or when, I lost who I am along the way. Writing, it is me, it is the way I breathe, the way I live my day to day life. So, that being said, I am getting back to it, to the writing. I have some heavy plans for 2013 where my writing is concerned. My goals are as follows…I plan to release the following books in 2013, in the order in which I will be listing them. At this point, I want to thank my fans for their patience and as soon as I have dates of release for each one, I will let you know.

2) The Talking Fence (young adult)
3) Meghan’s Acceptance A Ravenwood Novel Book 3

She slowed and noticed it was nothing more than bad things about people she didn’t even know. The year had started without her, and she made her way to the office to register. Ninth grade was scary enough without being the ‘new girl’. She meets John and is instantly smitten, but is his attraction something other than it should be? Will Rhiannon show the entire school what she is made of, or will the rest of the school population win? Only the talking fence can say for sure.
