What are your New Years traditions? Normally my hubby and I do something a little fun to celebrate, an annual dinner party at the home of dear friends. My sister and her husband also are there, along with my BFF from high school and her hubby and all our close friend. Starting the year with friends who are really family is the best. Jonna always goes out of her way to treat the vegans as well as she does the carnivores.
And as always on New Years Day, I feel good, because I don’t drink alcohol, so no hang-over here.

I admit I'm pretty lousy at blatant self-promotion. But I intend to make this a good year for honing my marketing skills in such a way that I can sell a few books without annoying my friends. I am taking to heart a lot of what I have learned from Emily (Lee) French and Jeffrey Cook, and also from Thomas Gondolfi.
I see the New Year as a brand new beginning marketing-wise, with endless possibilities. In completing and publishing my books and building the small following I have gained, I've already achieved dreams I never thought possible, and now a new year lies before me. How wonderful to know that anything can happen!
