Well… I failed on doing my 2015 year end wrap up post – but I’m letting that one go. 2015 was just so busy and chaotic – that I’m even sure how I managed to get through the year! Thank god it’s over, is all I can say.
So, this year – I am starting afresh. I am doing a happiness jar, where I write something that made me happy through each day. I currently have six scrappy bits of paper with my positive thought or moment of the day scrawled on them for each day of the 2016 year so far, and now I just need to find a nice jar to put them into.
2016 is going to be the year of change for me. I desperately need to get back into the writing habit which has slipped a bit lately. I also have to produce two books this year as well:
- Wildest Dreams
- Paris Nights
I am over halfway through writing Wildest Dreams, and I’m looking forward to getting it done and dusted. Paris Nights is already mostly planned out. Those are my publishing goals for the year, and for the moment – that’s what I’m sticking to. Both books have setting in France. Wildest Dreams begins in Manhattan and the Hamptons, and ends up in the south of France. Paris Nights starts in London, and as you guessed – ends up in Paris. As always – I write books that take readers of whirlwind adventures around the world.
Wildest Dreams is going to be a little different for my normal readership. It’s pretty heavy on the romance at the start of the book – and then it gets into the fast paced action. I’m really looking forward to getting it done though, and I’m loving my colourful arrangement of characters. They are effing great. If this book goes well, I may introduce more characters to that world in the future.
Paris Nights is part of The Nights Series, and will focus once again on Mack the Assassin, taking on an entirely different role, and owning her new life. It’s going to be fabulous. I can’t wait to get into that book – new adventures with the Noctem Assassination team! Eeeeeeeeep!
Dwell Design and Press has had a few cover design enquiries lately, so I will have some design work to keep me ticking along as well.
Our daughter Abby is growing up so fast these day it can be hard to keep up with her. She goes to Montessori School and absolutely thrives in that environment. It’s damn good for her. My Mother in Law (bless her) has Abby the rest of the time, and honestly – I couldn’t get through half the things I do without having a good support system in place.
My husband is working his tail off once again for the year, and trying to get our garden sorted out. He’s been building retaining walls, planting, and we’re soon to have a nice new fence. All very exciting.
Anyway – I should probably get back to my Evil Day Job. It’s the first day back at the office for the year, and I have a boatload to get through.
I hope you all have a brilliant start to the new year, and may all your goals and dreams you set be achieved.

Looking forward to both of your books 🙂 Good luck with your goals, will keep you on track and kick your butt every now and again.
I love the idea of a happiness jar. Just the act of noticing and writing down good things, I think, is helpful in and of itself. All the best for a less chaotic year!
