My mom said this on the first of every month for as long as I can remember. I do it too. I said it about 12:30 am. I woke up about then after falling asleep at 11:30 pm. Yes, we’re party animals :)

Lot’s of writing changes this year. A publisher has closed down, reverting rights back to me. Another publisher I won’t submit to anymore and will be getting four books back this January. I am submitting to two others, so we will see where that goes.

Strangely, I feel like a debut author again. A new author with no books out there. I am going to try my hand at self publishing this year. That is scary and exciting.

I’m even thinking of rebranding myself with a new name. Saying goodbye to Cristal and hello to…. ? That’s still in the works. Still lots to think about and plan.

Anyway, Happy New Year to everyone!
