It’s a new year which always means R&R time for me–no, not rest & relaxation.  It’s time for rebirth & rejuvenation!  2011 is a promising year of new adventures and new projects.  This is the year I move to Nashville.  I’ve lived in New York my entire life!  It’s both liberating & exhilarating as well as scary & intimidating to pick up and go to a new place and leave your family and friends behind.  However, I’m not leaving anything behind…I’m taking everything I love with me via memories.  Nowadays, living far away doesn’t have to be a bad thing.  A couple of my best friends live states away and sometimes I feel closer to them than some people whom I see almost everyday.

My move doesn’t take place until July…until then, it’s money saving time…and also book releasing time!  “Breaking The Moon” is almost finished…it’s always bittersweet when ending a novel.  I am actually looking forward to the editing process, though.  That’s kind of weird since editing is usually the most annoying thing about writing, but I’m looking forward to reading this story from beginning to end and see how it is.  This is my chance to almost be a reader.

Book event ideas are starting to form.  Now that I live in Long Island, I have a new market to promote to.  With many local Starbucks wanting to host me, this gives me opportunities to gain more fans.  I just hope it will spread outside of New York.  I am going to the midwest in June to visit those faraway friends I previously mentioned–maybe I’ll do an event while I’m there.

My 28th birthday is coming up later this month.  I’m excited about my birthday wish to raise funds for Autism Speaks.  The charity is close to my heart.  If you’d like to donate, here’s the link: http://wishes.causes.com/wishes/190004?bws=fb_event_stream.  Thanks 🙂

I will have a release date for “Breaking The Moon” soon and also the first chapter up once it is edited.  Stay tuned!! 🙂

Hugs, Kisses & Stars,
