New Year, New Blog Hop

2013 is here somewhere and will be here in the U.S. soon. The first day of 2013 is a fresh start to what can be a wonderful year. As they say, tomorrow has no mistakes in it—yet.


This is a blog hop about New Years and we’re supposed to discuss traditions today. I know that New Year’s Resolutions are a tradition for some, but I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, and I don’t have any traditions to share with you all.

I can say that I am thankful for the year I have had personally and professionally. I started my forage into the world of websites back up with the Capri Montgomery website. On top of that, I met some really nice authors like, Paige Tyler who writes erotic romance, and she is a really nice woman to get to know.

2013 will see the return of the Shadow Hills series—back by popular demand. If you haven’t started reading it yet, check out the first season in the six month long series starting with book one, Fallen Hero.

Shadow Hills: Fallen Hero ~ Small towns, big secrets.


Tanner Price, former Marine and now sheriff of Shadow Hills, thought he just might die of boredom until a mysterious woman arrived in town. Now all he can think about is uncovering this sexy vixen’s secret. Getting close to her could be dangerous. Will putting one woman’s betrayal behind him and opening his heart to love again turn out to be a mistake?

Shadow Hills: Fallen Hero is available now on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, and Lulu.

I have goals and use the new year as a time to start them, Even though there are others I start at other times, it feels kinda neat to start some with so many others,I really want to be able to stand and walk for longer than 5 min. also to start cooking more of the recipes i have been be fun to see if they are as good as they sound and look, Hope you have a new year full of warm memorieslaughter and love,
