Happy Holidays! And some other random stuff

Happy Holidays, everyone! I’m getting really excited for Christmas this year. It will be the first year I’ll be spending the holidays in South Carolina. While I will certainly miss my family back home, I’m glad to avoid the Canadian cold (Sorry, guys).

This will likely be my last post before Christmas. I have a lot of things to do and house guests to tend to. I’m sorry to say that I won’t be meeting my December 23rd first draft goal. I think that goal was a little too ambitious. You can’t rush these things, you know.

I think I’ll take a step back from writing for the next couple of weeks, focus on Christmas and do some reading. I have two books on the go right now. One is a novel by Lane Heymont called The Freedman and the Pharaoh’s son. I’m about a third of the way through it and it’s really good! I can’t wait to review it and Lane has agreed to do an interview with me in the new year. He’s also a literary assistant, so it should be a good one! 😉

I’m also currently reading a YA manuscript by Summer Wier. I’m really enjoying it. I can’t wait to see it in print!

I have some author interviews scheduled for the new year and one potentially BIG one that I’ve been working on locking down. I can’t jinx it, but I think it’ll happen.

This has really been a whirlwind kind of year for me. I’m still a little shocked by how well things have gone for me this year, and I am SO grateful for the people who have helped me, supported me and cheered me on all the way through. My book will be released January 28th, 2014. I’m hoping to do a VLOG either shortly before or on release day so I can personally thank those who’ve been by my side.

Aside from reading, I also have a ton of interviews to complete for my blog tour. It’s strange being the interviewee instead of the interviewer. I’m learning a lot about what kind of questions work and don’t work.

Anyway, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
