The New Year is off to a great start! The holidays were lovely, and this year, I didn't lose writing momentum. I hope that loss of momentum will now be the Ghost of Christmas Past for me.

My husband was a pain in the ass on New Year's Eve, but he did take me to a very nice restaurant, and then to a dance at one of the clubs we frequent. After all these years I know he'll be a lot more fun when it warms up. It's hard to be happy when you're shivering.

2008 was a great year for me. As I wrote them, I had no idea my stories would be so well received. I just knew I wanted to get the stories down, and make them real. Writing is addictive. So here's where I am, going into 2009, and it's a great place to be. I should be so lucky as to repeat the successes of the year past.

The recap - a step back in time, from future, to present, to past.

Contracted a new story, Give Me One Night, with Amber Allure, and got the fab cover today. Check it out at I asked for a disco ball or a Jag, and got the disco ball. It's cool, baby. I like it.

Signed up to do a story for a PAX/Theme weekend in June. The story is a rich man/poor man theme, and I'm 20k into it since December 28th. It's flowing into the keyboard.

A Taste of Victory went on sale. A Taste of Victory is all three Victory stories in one great paperback. Yep, I ordered a few copies for friends as late Christmas presents.

Shining Victory ended the year as the #6 overall best seller for the 4th Qtr. at Amber Allure! I'm ecstatic! 

Passion's Victory is a 2008 CAPA Nominee at The Romance Studio.

Surrendered Victory launched the whole thing as a 2008 Amber Heat Wave Winner, and the #4 overall bestseller for the 2nd Qtr. at Amber Allure.

That's a heck of start.
