In many ways 2014 was a difficult year. My family moved. My son has a mysterious digestive problem that has caused him to miss a lot of school. My daughter started high school and encountered new difficulties caused by being a bright kid with a learning disability.
But 2014 was a great year too. When I published The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth, I had no idea what to expect. I considered it entirely possible I would sell 100 copies and no one would ever hear about it. I wasn’t at all prepared for thousands of people buying the book and hundreds of good reviews. There are times I still can’t believe it :).
So 2014 was a great year because of my readers. I am very grateful to everyone who bought, read, and reviewed my book. Thank you!
And I’m humbled and thrilled that I may have brought fellow readers the kind of pleasure other authors have given me.
I am hoping 2015 will be just as good (or even better!). I am working hard to publish my next Austen variation, Pride and Proposals, as quickly as possible. And I’m germinating the ideas for the next story. Stay tuned!
