I have had a lot of fun over the last six months, discovered some really exciting new authors, made some stupendous new friends and been thrilled by the response to some of my somewhat salacious attempts at autobiography thinly veiled as fiction.
I haven’t yet managed to wrestle with a werewolf, get sucked senseless by a vampire or even tangle with a woody wood sprite BUT … that’s why we make new year’s resolutions, isn’t it? That’s why we always start every new year filled with hope and breathless anticipation. There is always something new to discover, something new to try and, best of all, something new to read.
So to usher in the new year of 2012, I would like to say thank you to all the lovely people I’ve met in 2011. And, for those of you who are writers, please take this opportunity to remind everyone of the brilliant book(s) you’ve written and where we can buy it/them. Because buying books is great and can sometimes be even more fun than reading them since you still have that undiminished thrill of heady expectation and never have to suffer the dull slog through an uninspired prologue or the damp squib of a disappointing climax, not to mention a bloated muffin top of a middle.
I always like to have a big stack by my bed. I am stuffed to the gills with soft and hard versions of exciting prospects. There’s just not enough time to read and review everything. But I love to be tempted. I’m addicted to teasers. So don’t be shy. Show me what you’ve got and please don’t make me beg.
If you are ushering in the new year with a promotional opportunity such as this on your own blog, please provide the link so some very special sexy creatures can come and shower you with praise and titillating comments.
A happy and prosperous new year to you all!
