A Thank You Photo from Trip

As some of you may know, my Love Has No Boundaries story An Intrepid Trip to Love went up on Sunday, May 26th, and already it has some wonderful reviews. I just wanted to shout out a thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to read it, not to mention leave a review. I’ve been blown away by all the comments left in the thread as well. You guys are amazing. All your effort is truly appreciated, and nothing warms my heart more than knowing folks are enjoying it.

Here’s a little family photo for you. My guess is Trip wouldn’t have been able to stop giving his tiny pup kisses no matter how much the pup griped about it. Though I imagine Robbie wouldn’t have been able to resist returning those kisses because he loves his daddy so–even if he is a bit OTT at times.

Happy Endings and New Beginnings!

happy 2013Hello all! Another year ending, another shiny new year ahead of us. Hope you all had a lovely holiday season! I had a wonderful time with my family over Christmas, and now I’m back where I plan to complain a little less about the scalding heat after spending over a week in what felt like arctic weather.

The drive to Kansas was insane, twenty four hours each way, with a hotel stopover in Tennessee after twelve hours. I did pretty much all the driving as my dad wasn’t feeling too well. Tennessee has some crazy curving roads going downhill that freak me out, and both times I ended up driving them at night! It was an interesting experience, but the main part is we all had a good time. Now here we are with a new year upon us.

I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions, because frankly the moment I say I’m going to do something, I end up with something different altogether. So instead I have a mental list of things I’d like to get accomplished during this bright new year. 2012 went better than I could have imagined, so here’s hoping that 2013 will be even better. I hope to get around to a few more conventions, looking forward to GRL in Atlanta for sure! Here’s to getting my butt in gear and getting all those manuscripts I’ve been piecing together done. I hope to get my first contemporary M/M Romance written and submitted along with a few other projects. The end of 2012 sort of slowed down for me writing-wise with a lot of external things popping up like dental surgery and such.

Mostly I want to thank everyone for their amazing support this year. I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I have in one little year without you. To everyone who took the time to read my books, to post comments, emails, reviews, to new friends and new acquaintances, thank you all. I hope you have a safe and joyous New Year!
