Professionally, 2011 saw 4 new releases from me: TOUCH OF A THIEF, IMPROPER GENTLEMEN, A DUKE FOR ALL SEASONS and MY LADY BELOW STAIRS. I've been so blessed.
And 2012 is looking rosy with the release of SIN OF THE HIGHLANDER to kick things off. I'm excited to see what the new year brings. And I'm excited to bring you my next blog guest--Shona Husk. She's an Aussie with a brand new book to share with us!
Shona Husk: It’s a new year so I thought I’d look back at the things that made me smile in 2011.
Buying the plane tickets to the US so I can go to the RT convention in April and take the kids to Disneyland.
Surviving a management change at work and successfully remaining part-time.
A long running road construction project finally finishing and looking great. While the design part which is my job was done months ago, I still had to go to construction meetings and make a few tweaks as it progressed.
Cover art. Is there anything better than seeing new cover art for the first time?
Discovering new authors and reading old favorites. I didn’t read as much as I usually would (something to do with deadlines) but I still found plenty of new authors to swell my TBR pile to towering proportions.
New TV shows, okay we get everything slower than the US so I’m still hanging out for the second half of season 1 of Terra Nova (channel 10 I’m looking at you for taking a summer break). I’ve heard good things about Once Upon A Time and Grimm, so fingers crossed we get them in Australia soon.
My kids getting medals for their cheerleading performances.
Watching Fright Night 3D. David Tennant, vampire hunter—do I need to explain?
Meeting Eskimo Joe, one of my favourite bands…and telling them I listened to their music while writing THE GOBLN KING (they signed a copy of the book—no you can’t have it its mine!)
What made you smile in 2011?
Mia: Thanks, Shona. Your post made me smile in 2012. And you and your sister look pretty cool to me!
Shona has graciously offered a copy of her totally hot looking THE GOBLIN KING to one lucky commenter, so be sure to share what made you smile in 2011. I'll also be giving away winner's choice from my backlist named above!
