New Year’s Eve

IMG-20121231-WA004I hope you all had a great New Year’s Eve however you decided to spend it, whether that was partying the night away or staying in (or ignoring it entirely.)

I was at a house party in Finsbury Park with great friends, wine and board games and loved every moment of it. We even managed to drag ourselves out the next day for a pub lunch, which was a great start to 2013, albeit a slightly delicate one…

As the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve I had that usual feeling of excitement, happiness and nerves too. I like to think it’s a good thing, that little flash of apprehension every now and then…. Being a little daunted by challenges ahead of you means that you are pushing yourself and challenging yourself, and as long as you are doing that, you are always moving forward…

2012 was an incredibly busy year for me. I launched my debut novel, This is a Love Story, and had an amazing time doing that. I also took a leap of faith and left my full-time job to work part-time, enabling me to give much-needed time to my writing and university studies. That was a very difficult decision, but the right choice. Since then, I finished and polished off book two and have two more coming as well (2014 and 2015).

Now, looking at 2013 I have the launch of Three Little Words in eBook and export on January 31 (eeeek, that’s really not far off now…), the launch of the UK paperback edition in August, the London Marathon in April, and also the completion of book three.

I’m looking at the year ahead as a series of little stages and steps I am taking to achieve bigger goals. What do you all have lined up for this year? Do you hope to finish any writing projects in 2013? I’d love to hear what you are up to either on here, on Twitter, or on my Facebook page.

I’m so looking forward to getting back to work on book three, and I will be sharing a pre-release extract of Three Little Words with you all very soon…

Happy New Year everyone!
