End of Year 2023 Recap

December 31, 2023

Happy New Year! As this year draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on our accomplishments and what we want to do next. This year, I’ve checked these items off my list:

  • Published Star Tangled Murder, #18 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries
  • Reissued all my eight backlist romance titles in new paperback editions and went wide with the e-books
  • Put Box Set Six up for Pre-Order
  • Started the process of updating Books 1-3 in my mystery series
  • Worked on a new WIP mystery novel tentatively titled Murder at Your Service 

Basically, I accomplished most of what I’d set out to do, and any unfinished items will carry over into the new year. I’ll list those goals in a separate post.

I hope my articles have entertained you and been educational as well. I enjoy relating my adventures in dining and in exploring the area. Did you know I’d kept travel journals since my childhood? I still have them stashed in a plastic bin, and I credit this journaling with getting me started in my writing career. My cross-country trips, our honeymoon to the South Pacific, a Eurail pass adventure across Europe, and a tour of Asia are only some of the entries.

Now instead, I share my explorations with you directly. However, it’s often hard to know if anyone is reading these articles unless you leave a comment.

As a test to see who’s here, I am offering anyone who reads this post a free book as a New Year’s gift. That’s right, if you got this far, then you can go to BookFunnel to download a copy of Hair Brained, my story that starts on New Years Day. Reviews are always welcome!  https://dl.bookfunnel.com/z51vot6b58

What would you like me to discuss in future topics? More writing advice? More posts about everyday life? Or a mixture of both? Please leave a comment so I know what you want and that it’s worthwhile for me to continue this blog.

Have a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!

  1. Happy New Year to you too Nancy and your family
    Wishing you best of health for 2024
    and hope you achieve all your writing goals

    Congratulations on achieving your goals for 2023

    I love reading your blog and enjoy hearing about
    your travels, food and writing advice.

    I’d like a mixture of both please for future blogs

  2. Even though I’m not a writer, I greatly enjoy the mixture, Nancy. Congrats on meeting your goals and best wishes to you and yours for a happy 2024!

  3. Happy New Year, Nancy.
    Trying this again since it didn’t seem to go through the first time.

    I have already read and reviewed Hairbrained so no need for a copy, but I did want to let you know how much I enjoy all your posts throughout the year. Even though not everything is applicable to me, like the advice to writers, I always find something interesting. And when you recap the year I realize again how organized and productive you are.

    All the best for 2024 and please keep the food and family photos coming!

    1. Thank you, Sally. I appreciate your feedback. It inspires me to keep this blog going and to get new material out to my readers. Have a wonderful New Year!
