Happy New Year!

It’s almost over now!

2013 was a roller coaster of a year at Casa Des, and 2014 promises to deliver more of the same. Usually I get my year end inspiration in the Fall—have ever since I was a little kid. This year was different, and I didn’t really think about next year at all beyond signing up for classes and submitting a couple of manuscripts.

Instead of listing what I hope to accomplish in 2014, I think a day to bask in 2013’s milestones is in order.

In 2013 four of my stories were published!

June: Directing Traffic

July:  A Sunday Kind of Love

November:  Curious Sustenance

December:  “Toy Run”

In December I submitted two full length novels for consideration—a Contemporary Erotic Romance to Dreamspinner, and a Speculative YA to Harmony Ink Press!

Since this week I’m pretending I’m a full time writer, that’s the extent of my list. Although, I could just as easily include the strides this old hermit has taken in learning social media—and actually being social! 😀

Oh, and I’m trying to talk myself into going to a Portland Reader/Writer event on Jan 11th, so any encouragement on that front will be appreciated. It’s scary, since connecting Erotic Romance with my face and/or real name could make it impossible for me to make a living—but it sounds like so much fun to hang out and talk about books… Jury’s still out.

Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Darling Charley, you are one of the bright spots of my online experience in 2013! You are absolutely delightful! I do hope you will let go of fears and embrace the fun. Any get-together that I’ve seen in any combination of the M/M romance community has shown that people are kind, fun, and accepting. Just having interacted with you as I have, I know others will be so glad you joined them.

    Hugs and best wishes for the new year!!

    • Happy New Year, Carolyn! *hugs*

      Thanks so much for your kind words! I’m so lucky to have met you, and the other wonderful folks in the M/M Romance community. I have a good feeling about 2014! 😀
