Happy New Year!

Happy 2020. I’m walking into it with clear vision. I’m not making New Year Resolutions, but I am setting goals.
To spend more time with family and friends, creating wonderful memories of joy. To travel to destinations my hubby and I have never visited, stockpiling additional settings for future books. To getting another new book out, so my fans can enjoy one more mystical story. I’m committed to learning more about crafting, editing, and strengthening my writing to continue bringing emotion to the page. (See my NEWS page for an exciting course I’ll be hosting at our beach house in the Fall!)

I’m determined to learn more about promotion and sharing fellow authors’ books to help widen the audience for others. I’ll continue to host and attend writers’ retreats to keep the camaraderie brewing within the writing world. We always have such fun brainstorming, then working on our individual projects. There’s something magical about the energy in the room.

I plan to attend only a few conferences this year, the ones that celebrate authors and readers alike. What a fabulous way to network and meet new people, visit with old friends, and make new friends for life!

What are your plans this year? What adventures do you have planned so far? What goals do you hope to reach?
Can’t wait to hear how you plan to dive into 2020…So, please share.

Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous year!
Until next time,
Hugs – Christine

Hawaii Beach Walk

I just returned from an awesome “mini-Guam” reunion in Hawaii. One week on Oahu and one week on the Big Island. Our group ranged from six to nine, so we rented homes on each island to enjoy the ocean views, have cook outs, and enjoy each others company. We caught up on the last sixteen years and are planning more reunions in the future!

Of course, I took my laptop and was able to spend a few days writing with the aqua-blue water crashing in front of me. I let my mind brew new scenes while we took in the sights, and I’m raring to get back to work full-time.

I’ve set a few deadlines for myself. Finish Margie Lawson’s awesome lecture packets by April 8th. Finish Passion’s Promise MS by June 1st. I’m attending OWFI in Oklahoma City on May 4th and though I will be networking and attending some workshops, a dear friend and I will spend most of our time working on our individual WIP.

Life is crazy, but life is good. I’ll keep you posted as we get closer to a release date.
Until then… Hugs!!!
