Monthly Wrap-up~ January

January Wrap-up

It’s been a busy but very productive month. My word for this year is FINISH so I’ve worked hard to make sure everything I start, I finish and some things I started a long time ago, I’m getting them finished. It’s a good feeling. So here’s a wrap up of how this month went.

As I said in the introduction, this year my word is FINISH. With that in mind, I’ve decided to push ahead and publish. It’s been a life-long goal and as I can see the big 5-O crashing in fast, I need to do this. It is my goal to publish a collection of my short stories, SHE LEARNED TO FLY, this spring and launch my first series LET THE SHADOW FALL in the fall. Stay tuned to hear more about those.

This month is bittersweet for me. It’s my youngest daughter’s birthday and this year she turned nine. She is perhaps the toughest angel I’ve ever met. Right now she is into astronomy, cooking/baking, and gaming. She likes to play but also wants to create games. The ninth birthday is big here because that’s when you can get your ears pierced.


A Look Ahead:

I have February’s posts all done. That is huge for me to be this far ahead. I’ve got some good books to share with you. I’m really looking forward to DAWN’S PROMISE coming out on the first. So make sure and come back tomorrow to see my review. I’m working on doing more interviews for my Friday Nooner. There’s a great app that would make it seamless, but it’s a little pricey. I should get the stories for my collection to a group of beta readers. That’s exciting and scarey. I’m also working to develop my editing services more so with that in mind, I made this video:


We start selling Girl Scout cookies, in a couple of weeks. So I’ll be busy selling and stuffing my face. I’m starting my oldest daughter on Algebra. That should be loads. My DH starts a six-month class, but don’t worry I bought him a special pencil box, a lunch cooler, and plenty of pencils and pens. So he’s all set.

I wish everyone the very best February possible.



  1. Sounds like you’ve been busy. My word for this year is finish too. I have way too many works in progress. I’m also doing the A to Z challenge this year but you’re doing so much better at it than I am. I’m still turtle status. Happy birthday to your daughter, and good luck meeting your goals. You’re doing great so far by the sounds of it.

  2. Happy Birthday to you and your daughter! Hope you celebrate ALL month!

    I have added Letters to Lincoln to my TBR, and will look for it during my next book haul.

  3. It sounds like January was a great month for you! I’m so envious that you have all of February’s posts done. I need some of that productivity!
