Just thinking…

What a Year!

I was just thinking…a year ago, April 24, 2012, I published my first novel, Something New. As I look back over the past twelve months, I find it hard to believe it’s been a year…and what a year it’s been! Here is just a taste of what I’ve been up to this past year:

  6. Wow, girl! You’ve definitely been hustling. That the great thing about self-publishing. You can resurrect the stories you’ve already written and put them out there. That’s just what I did, and I’m so glad. Happy anniversary!
