The New Year is Almost Here!

31 Dec

Okay: I have three announcements before I begin today’s post:

First, I must clarify something about my last post. Some of my information about Scribd was incorrect but has since been corrected at the top of the page. I apologize for this mistake, and I will continue to work hard to bring relevant information to you all. In fact, I have subscribed to it as a reader, and I will review it in the near future. Thank you for understanding.

Second, I want to thank Hines and Bigham’s Literary Tryst for reviewing Minutes Before Sunset. “Once I read the first page I had a hard time putting it down. I found myself lost in the story and absolutely cannot wait to read the rest of the trilogy!” Check out what their favorite heartfelt moment was by clicking here.

Third, I also want to thank the lovely readers who helped me yesterday on my Author Facebook page. Thank you for being so helpful and great, Rusty’s Reading, Yvone Williams, Rich Weber, and David Thompson.

Now onto today’s post:

If you participated in the scavenger hunt during the Seconds Before Sunrise cover reveal, then you already know that New Years is my favorite holiday. This fact was on Cassandra Lost in Books, but here it is:

“Independence Day may be Eric’s favorite holiday, but the author’s favorite holiday is New Years.”

So why is New Years my favorite holiday?

I love beginnings. The promise of a fresh start is uplifting. In fact, the first of the month is probably my favorite day of the month, and New Years is the ultimate first of the month. I like dreaming of the changes to come and finding ways to be proactive about what I want to accomplish.

So I thought I would share my resolutions with everyone today. Then, I realized that I don’t exactly have one. Instead, I have a promise.

I want to continue to work hard. I want to put more novels in your hands and articles on your computer screen. I want to continue to grow with you and learn from you. I want to continue with everything, and I will continue to be positive and embrace any changes that come. I will work hard, and I look forward to all kinds of surprises – whatever 2014 will bring. That is my promise to you guys.

In fact, I am currently working very hard on some things that I will hopefully be able to announce next year! The photo below might be me working on one of those things 😀

This is me - working hard a few days ago

Thank you for believing in me and helping me as I continue to pursue my dream.

I’m also on Facebook if you prefer that!

I’m also on Facebook if you prefer that!

I am here to help you, too! Always remember that you can contact me at shannonathompson@aol.com with any questions or comments.

For instance, if there is something you would like me to blog about in 2014, let me know, and I will credit your website when I post about it.

Since it’s the holidays, I’m also giving away free ebooks of Minutes Before Sunset in exchange for an honest review! Just send me an email 😀

Let’s continue to build a community. Happy New Years!
