I can’t believe it is the end of 2022. It doesn’t feel like it, though, does it? I feel like I just managed to get into the fall season and then BOOM – 2023!
There is so much that has happened this year. Where to even start?!
I had a new publication, of a new tarot spread book! You can check it out on Amazon here.
I’m really proud of this book. Not only does it contain tarot spreads I made to focus on personal growth and self-care, but also journaling prompts, meditations, and more. They were techniques I used personally and hope others find it as helpful and enlightening as well!
I didn’t get a romance novel out this year, but I do have a few in the works. All contemporary, for now. I have a couple fantasy romance ideas brewing, but I need more marinating time.
This year was also a busy year for author events. I attended SO MANY! There was Indie Author Expo (I did two of those), Romance Rendezvous Book Blast, and attended more as a reader (North Iowa Book Bash and Writers on the River). These events are always so much fun and I can’t wait to do more in 2023.
If you’d like to attend events, but don’t know where to start – I do have a list of ones I will be at on my home page! Be sure to check them out. Facebook is another great place to start to find local events and meet new authors!
I did a LOT of reading this year (101 books for a total of 25,433 pages). I always have such a blast doing reading challenges with friends, keeping up with my romance book club, and reading new authors (especially indie authors).
My goal for 2023 is to read another 100 books (though my big reach goal is 120 books). However, I’m going to give myself a bit of grace considering there are a lot of changes coming in 2023. If you’d like some book recommendations, be sure to check out earlier blog posts for book reviews as well as my Goodreads profile for the books I read this year!
I hope you all had an amazing 2022 with lots of great stories and reads! Feel free to share with me about any books you recommend, those must reads that I need to add to my TBR pile. I hope to have more updates on upcoming publications soon, be sure to keep an eye out!
