Hello Again

So it’s been over a year since I last posted. This blog has always been something of a diary for me, but now my Twitter account tends to serve that purpose even better–a diary written 140 characters at a time.

However, some things are suited to long-form posts and so here we are.

A lot has happened in a year. I finished writing two books. One is an urban fantasy that I had worked on for years, and one is a romantic science fiction that I wrote in a matter of months. I pitched the urban fantasy at RT2016 and eventually signed with my dream agent: Sarah Younger of the Nancy Yost Literary Agency.

My goal of becoming a published author is one step closer to fruition. I still can’t believe it’s real.

On a more personal note, I’ve managed to maintain my weight-loss for over a year. While I would still like to lose a little more, I’m happy just to have maintained because it has never happened before. I’ve probably lost several hundred pounds in my life, but sadly, until this time, it was the same weight over and over.

We’re doing the Whole30 again this month, and it’s reminding me to pay attention to what I eat and to check labels. It’s funny which products have hidden sugar added (I’m looking at you bratwurst and breakfast sausage).

Overall, I’m excited for what 2017 has in store. Let’s just hope it’s not another year before my next post. :)
