I posted this to Facebook a few hours ago:

“Hello, is this 2013? Yes, I’m happy to say that we’ve had an opening, and we’re going to be offering you a contract, if you’re available to start immediately. Oh, good. Thank you, and welcome aboard.

“What? Oh, the previous contractor? Well, I shouldn’t say this, but he had to be let go. Perhaps… fired with extreme prejudice is a better way of putting it.

“I’m sure we won’t have the same issues with YOU!”

In a nutshell? 2012 sucked rocks on a personal level. Professionally, though? Not bad!

Sold:

    • To Market to Forbidden Fiction  (reprint)
    • O, Promise Me!  to Circlet Press  (THIS is the one I’m most proud of selling!)
    • Kidnapped by Pirates to Forbidden Fiction
    • Fools Rush In to Forbidden Fiction (reprint)

Still under consideration:

    • Sapphires and Gold to Circlet Press
    • Heart’s Master to Circlet Press
    • Holy Palmer’s Kiss to Forbidden Fiction

Can’t sell, but FUN to write (aka fanfiction)

I had rejections, too. It wouldn’t be publishing if I didn’t!

Now. Plans for 2013!

To Finish (all started — these are my primary tasks until I get the page proofs for House of Sable Locks!):

    • From Dusk til Dawn
    • Tales from the Arena
    • Sea Prince (To be written with Danielle Jones)
    • The Willow Sword

To Outline (in order)

    • Holy Orders ( Sequel to Heart’s Master)
    • Hidden Things (Mystere Book 1)
    • Steam and Screw
    • The School
    • Temple of the Mysteries
    • The White Raven (sequel to Princes of Air)
    • Color Wars (that YA)
    • Coral Throne (sequel to Sea Prince)
    • The Lady and the Sword (Mystere Book 2)
    • Ashes and Light (Mystere Book 3)
    • Tablets of Stone (Mystere Book 4)

To Sell

    • Nomad’s Moon (currently being revised)
    • Exile’s Moon

On Hiatus

    • Wanderer’s Moon

And of course there will be the random short stories thrown in for good measure.

Happy New Year, everyone! See you next year!
