Happy New Year!
I hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve, and that you’re not nursing a painful hangover today. 🙂
I want to take a moment to wish you an amazing new year filled with fantastic times that make your eyes open wide with wonder.
And I want to thank all of you who follow my blog. Your likes and comments are very much appreciated. When I started this blog last Valentine’s Day, I didn’t have any expectations on the kind of reception that it would get — the number of followers, or the feedback through likes and comments.
I’ve been floored that more than 500 people want to follow this blog to get updates. (And I know some of those followers were just to get me to check out your Make Money At Home! blog, so I’m not thanking you.)
Also, I’ve been floored by the people willing to read my work. Truly, I treasure your comments. As you fellow bloggers well know, you craft a work to share a piece of you. And you hope that work will connect with someone out there. When it does, and they tell you about it, that’s a very beautiful thing.
So, thank you.
My resolutions for 2015…
- January will be a month of daily flash fiction pieces here. Last November, I posted a daily quote about writing and books to inspire myself and others. This time, I’m trying out my hand in coming up with quickie stories every day for a month. Some will be on the sensual side, but not all of them will be. I have the posts for the first weekend of January scheduled, as I’ll be off-line.
- If January goes well with daily posts of fiction, I’ll devote February to a daily post of love, be that in poetry and maybe some flash fiction, too. A kind of celebration for Valentine’s Day and my blog’s one-year anniversary.
- I’ll be reviewing more books, both so I can discover new authors — and to share those authors with you.
- I’ve been researching different aspects of self publishing, and I’ll be posting about that research now and then. Things I’ve picked up about the e-book market and promotion. Maybe these will help you authors out there who are also self publishers.
- Finally, I plan to complete many of the unfinished projects that are waiting for me. And I want to put the other story ideas into prose. I want to experiment with other genres besides erotica. Romance, horror, and crime — maybe others, too. My stories are about relationships, and I figure that if I skip writing about sex in some stories, that would make them romances. It’ll be a good stretch for me to look past sex in stories and experiment with other aspects of story-telling. Not that I’ll be dropping erotica entirely, but to look beyond it.
