What Are You Looking Forward To In 2014?

SSLY Banner

Here are the Top 10 Things I Am Looking Forward to in 2014:

10. Completing the next “September Story”, the follow up novel to September Ends which is tentatively titled September Again.

9. Revealing the identity of the anonymous English poet once September Ends reaches 10,000 paid downloads.

8. Returning to Nashville for a book signing at the Elaine Turner Boutique in Green Hills. (Can’t wait and still can’t believe it.) It is a lifelong dream come true.

Shoes 2014

7. Having a book signing in my favorite shoe boutique in the world,  Chattanooga’s  Embellish. (Of course, a writer would have a fav store called Embellish. How very appropriate.)

6. Meeting with friends–virtual and real-time. I wonder if I’ll even meet my collaborator at some point. (Writers, we’re not like other people. Occasionally  we write books with people we’ve never even met.)

5. Continuing my unique partnership with Spa Sydell and Vixen Vodka here in my new hometown of Atlanta, GA.


4.Being a featured author at The Novel Experience AND Authors After Dark. Can’t believe this dream is coming true either!

3. Working with ART ROCKS ATHENS. I bow before the artistic and creative force of their combined magnificence and achievements. Their art and music changed the world.


2. Taking a Caribbean vacation with the love of my life.

1. It will no longer be 2013 !! 🙂 What an Horrendum Anno this stinker of a year has been. Good bye 2013. I’m outta here.

Goodbye 2013

For all of you, my darling readers–I consider you all as friends.  I wish you peace. I wish you love. Most importantly, may the magic of all your dreams manifest throughout 2014. You are making all my dreams come true, even dreams I did not realize I had. Thank you so very much for giving me the ability to hope and believe again.

  2. I was just in Atlanta (for a conference) earlier this month and will be back again in May. What am I looking forward to in 2014? Spending more quality time with my hubby!


  3. Happy New Year. I enjoyed your top 10 list. I don’t have one but I’m sad to see 2013 leave. It was a good year but I’m looking forward to 2014. I hope I have as much fun. I want to read more and go to more book conferences.


  4. Yes, 2013 has been a difficult year. My keyword for the new year is joy, with gratitude playing a major part. I also hope to publish a holiday story, while still meeting my other writing deadlines. I love your top 10 list. Here’s to meeting our goals! 2014 blessings to you and yours.
