HAPPY NEW 2008!

With the New Year comes new intentions and goals.

One - creation of this blog. Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time and never had the guts to do. Who wants to listen to me blabber on about nothing? Well, I’ve done it. And hopefully, I won’t go on and on and on…and bore everyone to tears.

Two - getting my domain name and updating my website. That entails me learning Frontpage (or something similar), so this goal might take a bit longer to complete.

Writing wise goals – there are a few. A few days of holiday time (watching DVDs and reading books…all in the name of research, of course) then I’m back into revision stage.

Silhouette Desire have requested revisions (again) on “The Tycoon’s Toughest Adversary,” so I want to get them done asap and back to Diana at the New York office.

Once that’s done, then it’s back to completing revisions on the follow up book “Take Me in Your Arms,” the partial of which is also with Diana at Silhouette Desire.

Then I have two other books to finish – “Needing You” and “Clause to Contentment.”

And if I have time between all that and selling staircases at Slattery & Acquroff Holdings – http://www.stairking.com.au/ - then I want to revise my paranormal single title “An Angel’s Embrace” and find a home for it.

It sounds like a lot, but hey, if you don’t aim high, you never know what you can achieve.

Other things I’d like to achieve during 2008 is better health through exercise and weight loss (doing well but always can lose more), listening to my body and taking time to relax (as if housework is anyone’s priority!) and enjoying life in general.

2007 taught me some harsh lessons – enjoy each and every day. You never know what’s around the corner, good or bad.

So that’s it for my first post. Hope boredom hasn’t set it. Speak to you soon!
