Happy New Year!

Without even checking, I’m sure I won’t be the only author here using the above title for her blog post--but, hey, when you’re sending out a message within four days of the new year, how can you not acknowledge it?

How can you not be excited about turning the page, beginning with a clean slate, making a fresh start? And, best of all, about being lucky enough to do things over and finally get them right?

A new year is so special because it allows us to make improvements in any and all areas of our lives. Don’t know about you, but I’m ready--though I won’t bore you with my long list.

What I will share with you are my wishes for 2009.

For the readers: many wonderful new books and time to kick back and enjoy them.

For the writers: fabulous story ideas and publishing contracts to go with them.

And for you all, good health and great fortune every day of this happy new year!

All my best to you,



Barbara White Daille

Barbara, What a nice way to start the New Year by wishing good fortune to others. Thanks for the good wishes.

Edie said...

Barbara, good health and fortune back at you!

Mary Marvella said...

Hey, ditto what Edie and Sylvia said! Can't beat those comments with a stick! Same to both of them, too.

Joey Hill said...

Ditto what the others said, and looking forward to some more good reads from Ameican Romance. The covers are so yummy, I could eat them.
Despite the gloom, 2009 will be a cracker.

Hi, Joanne,

The covers *are* wonderful, aren't they? I've been sooo lucky with my two and have fingers crossed for the next one.

Kudos to the Art Department!


Barbara White Daille said...

Amy, that would make a lot of people happy, wouldn't it? ;-)

I'm keeping fingers crossed for those wishes, too!
