New Year's Blog Hop


I always find the beginning of a new year kinda funny. As a mom, I tend to focus more on September as being the start of a new year. That's when our new schedule grabs hold and the rest of my year is mapped out. But you can't help but look over the previous calendar year when New Years comes along. Not with everyone talking about it. I don't do resolutions. Mostly because I don't keep them. Goals are better for me, but even with goals I tend to have this anti-goal thing going inside me. I start to feel constrained and start doing whatever I can to not achieve the goal. Yet, I was very goal oriented in my youth. I competed heavily in horses in my teens and I loved TRAINING toward a show (the goal being to do well at the show). Wasn't thrilled with the actual showing, but I thrived under the training structure. It's more about the journey for me. So in looking at your resolutions and goals check out the journey portion of achieving them and make sure it's something you want to do (or are willing to do).


I'm giving away a copy of my paranormal novella Whitelighter for this blog hop. My giveaway is international and winner will receive a Smashwords coupon code to download their free copy of Whitelighter.

Lily Conner is a witch with an unusual side affect to her powers – she glows like a neon white light to all supernatural creatures. A vampire who kills her will absorb her light gaining the ability to use magic. Two years ago her family was killed when a pack of vampires followed her home. She barely escaped with her toddler sister in tow. Now she lives on the run with her four-year-old sister and a vampire bodyguard. 


Reyes Vega lost his whitelighter sister to vampires several years ago. When he meets Lily and her sister he knows he can’t let another whitelighter fall victim to the vampires and sets out to protect her from the same fate as his sister.

    My resolution is to spend more time on myself. I spread myself to thin. Maybe getting a cloning machine up and running would help!

    Happy New Year.
