Goodbye 2012, Hellooooo 2013!


As they say in Gaelic, bliadhna mhath ur!
Welcome to the first post of the year!
Now that 2012 is over - a year some would say was a fickle and often times cruel mistress punctuated with moments of extreme awesomeness - I'm welcoming 2013 with open arms. Thirteen has always been a lucky number for me and I can just feel the goodness comin'!



Speaking of goodness, now that I've resigned from my day job (surprise!) and have become an Official Fulltime Writer (OFW) I've got more time to hone my Writer's Angst. I've been advised that this can be done via crafting stories, drinking wine, surfing the internet, nipping at scotch, starting arguments on random internet forums, sipping bourbon, critiquing classic American literature and you guessed it, imbibing with beer. :0)

While working on my Writer's Angst as an OFW I've just gotten to the crafting stories bit. Currently I'm working the first four chapters of the sequel to The Legend of Lady MacLaoch and a spy mystery that I've been plodding away at for the past seven years. Looking into the future (later this year) I hope to have some sample chapters up of the MacLaoch sequel for you to read - fingers crossed!

For events we have the Night Owl Reviews' Winter Wonderland Scavenger Hunt that is going on now, you've got through Jan 15 to enter and complete the hunt. Click on the holiday button at the right to participate. Fun!

Happy new year everyone! And as we say in Hawai'i, hau'oli makahiki hou!

Scrumptious picture! Happy 2013, to you!
I had no idea you have a Scottish book out. I'll have to read it. ;)

Isn't it great?? And my Scottish book, The Legend of Lady MacLaoch, is also a scrumptious read. ;0)

Hope your new year is off to a great start as well!

Cheers,
