A part of me is a bit panicked over the fact that 2013 is almost over, but I’m actually glad it is. Even if 2013 was an interesting year, I’m really excited for 2014 :).
It was the year when I travelled on my own for the first time. I’ve flown before, but never alone. It was a bit nerve wrecking, but worth it.
It was the year when I went to Brighton and met a lot of nice people that I knew online and some that I didn’t know online. ( waves at Laura Anne, Catie, Thirzah and Kari.)
It was the year when I said screw it about finding a job, and set out to selfpublish. Since I believe enough in the stories on my hard drive that I think it readers will like them.
It was the year when I decided to give cover design a try, and discovered that for a newbie, I’m not bad at it.
It was the year when I finished something in Swedish. ( Even if I need to type in the second half on the draft.) Unfortunately, I have no idea when I’ll have time to revise it.
I have no idea what 2014 has in store, but I have a lot of plans.
In August, I’m going to Dublin, to Shamrokon. ( Finally!) Sometime in the spring or autumn, I’m planning on going to Spain. ( My family is probably planning something for August, but with luck I’ll be in Dublin then. Mediterrean in August? Not my favorite place. Even if Sicily was nice.).
Publishingwise, Daughter of the Dark is scheduled for the spring ( May, probably), and the sequel for the Autumn. And the first book in the Cauldron of Rebirth duology will hopefully be out in spring 2015.
( And yes, I know, I should schedule a lot of books for 2014, but I’m taking it slow, since I’m uncertain how long the editing phase will take. 🙂 )
