2012 in review and looking ahead to 2013!!!

Hi everyone –

I can’t believe we’re already saying goodbye to 2012!  Yow! When I look back over the year, I try to stay focused on the positives, and there were plenty… 091012_0421_NightSeries2.jpg 

Night Walker hit the shelves at Barnes & Noble stores, and also brought home some awards! Calisto & Kate brought home the San Diego Book Award for Best Published Fantasy-SciFi-Horror, and the Hearts Through History Best Paranormal & Best First Book.  Night Walker was also a finalist in the Book Seller’s Best contest for Best Paranormal and Best First Book…  Woot!!! 🙂

Over the summer, I signed with a super agent, Laurie McLean from Larson-Pomada, and she’s already sold some books for me!  Watch for the announcement soon…  Can’t wait to share the news!

NightAngelBlogLogo-2My Street Team grew and moved to facebook!  They also named themselves the Night Angels and they are some of the coolest people on the planet!

If you enjoy promoting books and want to join the team, just send me an email and we’ll get you into the facebook group…

My newest Night Series Novella, Night Thief, 112912_0140_NewsHoliday1.jpgwas recently released and has also been getting some attention!  I was super excited to see Kane & Rita’s story nominated for Best Novella of 2012 from GraveTells Book Reviews!!!  WOOT!!! 🙂 122312_0309_MerryChrist3.png   

On a personal note, Reno graduated from high school and started in the Music Dept. at Point Loma Nazarene University this Fall, and Panda has an audition coming up in January to tour and skate with Disney on Ice!  WOOT!!!

So 2013 is already looking like an exciting year ahead. I’m writing full time now, and hoping to have LOTS of new releases to share with all of you…

Also keep your eye out for my new website!!!  YAY!!!  We should be unveiling it right after Jan. 1st.

So how was 2012 in your house?  I’d love to hear about your high points for the year…  Anything cool coming up in 2013?

Thanks so much for all your support this year!!! WordPress put together a year wrap-up for my blog and we had 14,000 new views this year!  YOW!!!  

You guys are the BEST!

See you in 2013!
