Hey everyone! I’m so thrilled to be ending 2023 on a happy and productive note with the Holly Oaks Holiday Collection recently released on December 29th. The reception for the book has been amazing and it has already hit the top 100 new releases on Amazon’s collections and anthologies. I have so much to be grateful for this year!
Looking back, this year has been the most productive I’ve ever had writing-wise. Y’all readers really took Holly Oaks into your hearts with the Coming Home collection earlier this year. I also released two books in the My Obsession series. I’m looking forward to releasing more in this series in 2024. Crestwood University is also a world I’ve created that I enjoy joining time and time again.
I always have mixed feelings about the end of the year. My babies are getting older, and this time of year reminds me of that. Like everyone, I lost some special people in 2023 including one of my favorite aunts. Aunt Carolyn was the epitome of a strong-minded Southern woman. She spoke her opinion no matter what. She would go toe to toe with any man for things that she believed in. Watching her gave me the strength to reach for some of my dreams that I otherwise would not have, including writing. She didn’t care what other people thought of her. That is something I have been working on, especially with my writing. I never got to tell her that so please, please tell your loved ones how you feel while they’re here.
A new year means a new beginning and that’s exciting. I can’t wait to expand my writing and do more projects, including possibly writing for Vella. I’m looking forward to coming up with a schedule that maximizes my time with my family, but also gives me time to finish works that are important to me. I’m making a commitment to be more consistent with my writing. I want to continue to bring quality stories to my readers. I love you guys so much!
Please hug your family close during these days and thank you so much for your support in 2023. I can’t wait for what 2024 brings!
