2012 in SydReview- mini

We'l...let's see,  I survived the Apocalypse, the election fervor, Donald Trump's meltdown and the Fiscal Cliff...

I didn't publish much and allowed my "other" life to practically take over...:(

I refuse to make New Year's Resolution but instead will agree to live my life with no regret and LIVE FULLY TODAY. Many have left be forever mindful that tomorrow is NOT promised to anyone...

One thing I do alter ego will have some new alter egos emerging. I write under so many's time to separate them and give them different literary lives....will I announce who they are? Nope...but I do hope you'll find me...

Happy New Years and all that....LOL.

I hope you guys are having a great year! This is The Year of Positivity for me! I'm trying to have noting but positive thoughts. As a friend said, "It's harder than you think." So true. AND get this: My new years resolution was : TO BE SELFISH. We, as women give, give and give but sometimes we need to be refreshed and GET. And that's where I am: To be positively selfish!

Now for the writing...I'm feeling pretty HUMINAL these days. That's correct, I'm thinking a human/animal X is in the works. Something other than the vampires and werewolves. I'm just about burned out on them.

Just stay tuned. I'm gonna surprise you all...MUAH!

Reader reactions....LOL!

Have you ever gotten an email with a SQUEAL inside? I mean where the email author was SO excited about reading something you wrote you literally felt the paper squeal!

I got one of those emails about i want it now. This reader was totally enamored with Dubois in You've Got Male. Talk about making my day! Honestly, EVERYONE is in love with this talk stick of licorice with an accent...including Moi. LOL.

But I do understand. He was created to be "The Total Male Package"...and the response to him: phenomenal. Okay, I'm getting the shakes thinking about him come to life...anywho, if you haven't picked up a copy, get yours today. No one has been disappointed yet...

Author Reflection on the times....

From being in the writing biz since ~2002, I've seen many changes in this world. So, here are some things I think might be extinct within <5 years:

1. Paperback book costing >$7
2. ANY book not available for instant download
3. Brick and mortar bookstores
4. Bookstore signings
5. Book tours that aren't cybertours.

Why? Look at the rapidly changing landscape, folks. Big name book chains are folding, we are a culture of instant gratification and let's face it, not many people come out to bookstore signings, so why invest hundreds or thousands for less or equal return? Evenually the numbers (depleted pockets) will keep you at home :(.

If you think I'm out in left field, let me know!

No Happily Ever After ???

Can you have good romance if there isn't a "happily ever after?"

I ask this since I had one reviewer not like the last story in "i want it now" because it didn't clear up an "issue" for her. Honestly, from her comments, I definitely got the feeling that a FEMALE polygamist wasn't game in her book. No matter how many menage-a trois and adulterous affairs we write and get women to fantasize about, put the shoe on the other foot and all HECK NAW TO THE MAX breaks out! LOL.

But, I LOVE to push the envelope and stretch out comfort delicious word at a time...maybe she'll get the point after a while? Hmmmm :)
