Hello First name / Lovely Reader!
Can you believe it's already the end of the first week of January 2022? I swear, time goes by faster and faster with each passing year.
I took a little hiatus from…well, everything…for a few weeks over the holidays. My five kids were here in North Carolina for an entire blissful week. I enjoy them SO much. We baked, and had our annual tamalada, and hiked, and played games, and I just kinda stayed away from my computer. 

But I'm baaaack! And I'm ushering in 2022 with several big goals. I'm not one for resolutions, per se, but I'm all about setting achievable goals.
I have at least three books coming out in 2022. One is Murder Through an Open Door, which releases on February 1st! If you haven't already pre-ordered it, you can grab it HERE.
The next Book Magic mystery will be out in September. Help me with the title by voting below! It'll be up for pre-order soon!
And Bread Over Troubled Water, the 8th Bread Shop mystery, will release in late fall. That feels like so long from now, but I know it'll be here before I know it.
My BIG goals this year are to conquer Facebook Ads so that they actually help me sell books (!!), and to continue to build courses for WriterSpark Academy, my online learning platform. 30 Days to Craft Your Novel is up and running (SO exciting!) and How to Write a Cozy Mystery Master Class is next.
And, of course, I'll be writing, writing, writing. 
Other personal goals are to continue my yoga practice with more consistency and to train our new pup, Pippin! We did a dog DNA test on her. The results are below. SO interesting! 
Do you have any goals for 2022? Email me back. I'd love to hear!
Wishing you all a wonderfully bookish week!
Happy Reading!
