I like to think of the beginning of a new year as about having just arrived to a new, unknown territory. The past is left behind and ahead lie paths untrod before. Filled with excitement and respect alike, I’m ready to start exploring the new land.
The positive thing is that everything what happened in the past years happened for a reason. To better prepare me for the path I walk. Everything in time finds its way to its destiny. To its home. And I know that my home is in my writing. The only resolution I take is therefore to be as good writer for my wonderful benefactors as I possibly can be. And by benefactors I mean my characters. Without them I wouldn’t write. It’s their story that burns inside and wants and wants to be shared.
So, our path this year has three major milestones. You probably guessed it right. New books. In Blue Poppy Fields will be published still in the first quarter, Trails of Love I Crawl Part 3 in summer and Kiss or Kill in late autumn/ early winter. All of them belong to Guardian Demon series. The work on In Blue Poppy Fields progresses well and I’m all excited not only about the story it tells but also about the work with an amazing editor. Jade is not only a very talented freelance editor but an excellent writer herself and I fell for all her alluring, gorgeous men as much as I fell for mine.
Yes, I am excited and do not fear. Passion will guide my steps safely. It creates paths where there have been none. It finds new ways and makes hearts sing. I fell into a burning ring of fire of love for my characters and it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.
And my new year’s wishes for everybody who reads this post: Follow your heart, sing along and have a passionate year 2013.
