Goodbye 2014 ~ Hello 2015!

Happy New Year to all of you!!!

May your dreams come true and your goals be achieved!

2014 started out as a rough year for me with several major family issues. Luckily, by late April, my life had calmed down and I got back into the mind frame of writing. My Goal for last year was to publish 4 books, and I just barely reached that goal. In June I released two books, Distorted Loyalty and Six Days of Memories. Both of those did hit International Best Seller Status! In early December, Second Shield was released inside the box set, Heroes to Swoon For. A set of 11 stories by some awesome authors. Mid December, My Blood Runs Blue was re-released!

So what’s coming in 2015?

First off, I’m crossing my fingers that I don’t have a repeat of last year. I’m not up for family drama this year. Nope, Not. At. All!

My goals for this year: Blue Blood for Life will be re-released in January 2015. The new cover for Blue Blood should be out in a few days!

Barbara’s Plea: Is currently in editing – slated to release March 2015 – Romantic Suspense

You’re Not Alone: Waiting to be sent to editor – Slated to release Summer 2015 – Romantic Suspense

Mixing the Blue Blood: Book 3 – In writing process – Slated to be released by Summer – Paranormal Romance

Blue Bloods Final Destiny Book 4 – Plot process – Slated to be release late 2015 – Paranormal Romance

Second Shield 2 – In writing Process – Slated to be released late 2015 – Romantic Suspense

Garda 2 – Plot Process – Release expected early 2016 – Paranormal Romance

One Every Thirty Six Trilogy – Plotting process – Paranormal Romance

So if all goes well – I should be looking at 6 releases next year! Keep your fingers crossed that I can work my magic and stay on task!

Happy New Year!
