Out with the old, In with the New

>Can’t say I’m not glad to see 2010 go. It brought much stress and sorrow into my life. The year exited quietly at my house, helped along by a bottle of the bubbly stuff which hubby and I shared. Though I lost three family members, 2010 wasn’t all bad. My husband retired, we bought a new home, had some nice visits with family and friends, and something else interesting happened.

I sold a book!

Yep, that’s the good news I hinted at not long ago. Actually, I got an e-mail the day after Thanksgiving and signed the contract right before Christmas for an Sci-Fi/Paranormal erotic romance that will be published under the pen name of Annie Rayburn. Bittersweet Obsessions should be available as an e-book from Red Sage Publishing this spring or early summer. Yay!!

This Wednesday, I’ll be blogging on the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales site about getting “The Call”, then Thursday there will be my regular blogging day. I’ll try to remember to leave you reminders, but I’ll be traveling, so forgive me if I don’t.

To all of you out there, I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011. May your dreams come true!
