2013 Year in Review 1

There have been good and bad things about this year. I released my first short story collection and had 21 short stories published. I became a full time employee at ModCloth, and I recently started writing pieces for their blog.

I made no progress on finding an agent for my first novel, and am not anywhere close to finishing my second. I didn’t post very regularly here at all.

I did send out over 200 submissions, and I took some really awesome online classes. I wrote some new stories that I’m really proud of.

I saw the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park.

The very worst day of my life happened this year, and then my husband lost his job two weeks before Christmas.

I’m looking forward to 2014. I’ll be turning 30 this year, which is a little scary. I’m going to collaborate with one of my oldest friends on a card game that I’ve tentatively titled “Butterfly Garden.” Once I have the rules figured out and the art is ready, I’d like to see if I can fund it through Kickstarter. Look for that (hopefully) sometime this summer. I’d also like to do another short story collection this year, and I really need to do something about my novels.

I’d like to thank everyone who reads this for taking the time. If you’ve purchased or reviewed One Revolution or commented on my stories posts, I don’t think I can properly express how much that means to me. Thank you.

Happy New Year, everyone. Let’s make it great.
