New Years is always an amazing time to me. The possibilities, the opportunities. Who knows where we will be at the end of the year (assuming the Mayans were wrong)? My last year is the perfect example of that.
2011 was something else. This time last year, I was an unpublished author with a manuscript that I thought was pretty good. Then I won JournalStone’s novel contest, and all of the sudden, That Which Should Not Be was published. Then it was nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award and, as of this writing, That Which Should Not Be has twenty-one Five Star reviews on Amazon (and forty-eight on Goodreads).
I won the Absent Willow Review’s 2011 Short Story Contest. My short stories have been included in two anthologies, Christmas Lites and 90 Minutes to Live. And now I am wrapping up my second novel to be published by JournalStone this summer. Like I said, the future is bright. 2012 should be an incredible year.
