New Year's Resolutions

Hi all!

Today, I'd like to blog about something more personal -- New Year's Resolutions. I don't often make that many because I don't want to disappoint myself, but I had a few in general I'd like to share.

What did I accomplish in 2020?

-Signed with my amazing agent after searching for three years

-Published three novels with Fire and Ice Young Adult

-Read 80 books

-Wrote 11 books

-My family and I avoided COVID-19

Despite everything that went down in 2020, there were still things to be grateful about. What do I want for 2021?

Get A Book Deal

I so hope this is the year I get a book deal! My amazing agent and I are both working hard. GHOUL SCHOOL is supposed to go on sub soon, so I really hope this comes true! I'm putting the affirmation out into the universe right here!

Get Better Sleep

Ugh, I really NEED this one. Insomnia has been kicking my butt lately. What I wouldn't give to sleep well, even if it's just a few nights a week!

Write More Books

This one is easy! I try to write a book a month, but it doesn't always pan out. I'm aiming for at least 9 books written this year. I've just started my adult romance, THE LOVE CURSE, and it marks my 29th novel!

Read More Books

This one isn't difficult, lol. I love my books!

Just Hold On

Seriously -- I just want to keep holding on. The pandemic has been hard for everyone, especially on mental health. I pray that I can get through it and keep going.

What are your resolutions? Are you making any? It's okay if you aren't -- these are trying times. Just focus on your health and be safe out there!

Thanks for reading!
