2015 Year End Post

It's difficult to believe the year is at an end again.

Twenty-fifteen was a busy year personally and professionally. On a personal level, I battled a few illnesses, which is unusual for me. I've always been pretty lucky with my health, aside from the occasional sinus infection and the twice-yearly cold from hell. I also moved from Denver back to Western Kansas. I miss the convenience of the city, but let me tell you, I do not miss the traffic! A few weeks before GRL, my sister tricked me into getting another dog. My baby girl, Yashe, passed away October 12, 2014. On September 6, 2015, I picked up Dutchess, an almost-two year old Belgian Malinois for an "emergency foster." Now mind you, my sister knows me sometimes better than I know myself, so she knew how this would turn out. It's a good thing, though. Dutchess makes me smile and laugh every day. Who could argue with that?

Professionally, I released more books this year than since I started. Fire & Rain, Into the Light, The Bridge, Vanished 2 & 3. Five titles in twelve months is pretty good for me, even if one is a short story and two are novellas. Oh! And Vanished 1 became my first audio book! I'm proud of every one of those titles. If you haven't read them, please do. :) If you have read them, please consider leaving a review on Goodreads and/or your e-retailer of choice.

I hesitate to give a detailed account of what I have coming in 2016. Mostly because I've been known to change my mind about what projects I want to tackle next.

I will commit to having a paperback version of Vanished: The Complete Trilogy available at the end of January.

After that? Well, I have 3 novels and 2 novellas scheduled, but that could change.

Without giving anything away or making any promises, you may see some old friends get the story they've been demanding for years. You will definitely meet some new guys, who I hope you'll come to love.

As the year closes, I can only say thank you to the readers, reviewers, and old and new friends who contributed to making 2015 a great year. I couldn't do any of this without all of you. So for 2016, I wish you lots of laughs, loves, successes, and pages to read!
