This year has been amazing. When I look back on when I started this journey, I thought I knew was I was doing. It's clear that I only scratched the surface.
As I've learned, and evolved, my books have done the same. I'm not saying that they're perfect, but Another Chance is light years away from The Sultan's Bride.
My goal in the next year is to keep writing entertaining stories that people will like, and that I like writing. Every so often I get inspired, and when I do I make notes. There are seven items in the folder, so next year is shaping up to be busy.
Over Christmas I hope to clean up Loving the Rake, and get stuck into Lauren's story. I've also sworn to myself that I'll finish The Accidental Sultan as well, the sequel to The Sultan's Bride. That's been a work in progress since I finished the first one!
The other thing I'm doing is going through those first books to tidy them up, reformatting them in the same style as the newer books. So, I'll be busy but it will be worth it. The readers are worth the effort.
I have been blessed, finding amazing people who have supported me this year. It has been overwhelming at times, and I am so grateful for each and every one of you. I hope that everyone has an amazing Christmas (or break if you don't celebrate Christmas) and a fantastic New Year!
