Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first day of 2015! Happy new year to you and yours!

I hope it’s a wonderful bright morning filled with possibility, wherever you are.

Do you make resolutions for the new year? I’ve made a few this year (as I usually do) and have already accomplished several of them. (I cheated and started before the old year was done.)

First off, I’ve hired a new virtual assistant. You won’t catch many glimpses of Angie, but she’ll be busily making things happen so I can write more, and focus on my writing more. She’s taken on some of my lists of what I *should* have been doing but didn’t have time to get to, which will eliminate some stress for me, too. (I always worry about the things on my To Do list that don’t happen.) Our relationship will certainly evolve, but it’s off to a good start. Welcome, Angie!

Secondly, I’ve added some social media connections, partly because of Angie. It’s also feasible because of all the automated integrations that are now available for applications like WordPress and Mailchimp. You can now find me on Google+, on Twitter, and (in case you missed it) on Tsu.

Of these, only Tsu is new (you say it “soo”, so that phrase rhymes) and I like it quite well. The particular corner of Tsu I’ve found is very bookish, with lots of bloggers and authors and readers. I like to log in and just watch the book covers go by. That reminds me of browsing in a bricks-and-mortal bookstore, because I never know what I’ll see or what will catch my eye. Tsu is set up to share money with members, but I don’t think you have to worry about it skewing your income tax return: after a month or so, my balance is 35 cents. You have to follow someone into Tsu, so feel free to follow me in on this link.

All of this ties into my third resolution, which is to write more. I’m doing well with that this week, too, so I’m off to a good start. Tomorrow, I’ll talk about some changes I have planned for the new year in terms of promotion, and on Monday, we’ll talk about BOOKS in the works.

How about you? Any resolutions this year that you want to share?

One thought on “Happy New Year!

  1. Happy New Year to you too Deb! I have made a resolution in fact with you in mind because I see all the re-issues and the new upcoming novels and I never seem to have time to delve in properly to authors who are near and dear to me like you. So my resolution this year is to learn to say NO to both my editors at their respective publications and read more for my pleasure this year.
    I hope your Holidays were great and that you achieve everything you set out to do for 2015, wow 2015, how’d that happen 🙂
    I’m now following you wherever you are, hey and I don’t feel too much like a stalker LOL
    take care
