2011 - A Year in Review

I hadn't planned on doing an end of year post - but with so many of my pals doing posts, it reminded me of how awesome 2011 was for me as a Blogger and a Writer. Without further adieu I'm sharing my quick thoughts about 2011 and all the fun I've had.

As a Blogger.....

Can I just say I LOVE THEA HARRISON? Her debut novel, Dragon Bound is Book 1 of the new Elder Races series by this wonderful author and I was hooked from the first chapter. There are two more books and a novella in the series: Storm's Heart, Serpent's Kiss and True Colors (in that order). CHECK THEM OUT!


In August I attended Authors After Dark and finally met all of my blogger buddies face to face.  It was pure heaven. Check out my post about all the fun here.

New 2 Me Authors






The books listed above represent my top author picks for 2011 for New 2 Me Authors. While the books were already published, with squee pressure from fellow bloggers I picked up several series from Ilona Andrews, Jennifer Estep, Alexis Morgan and Carolyn Crane. Three words -- OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! Each series has it's own kick ass female lead or hunky hard cord hero. These are the first books in each of the series. If you haven't picked them up yet stop waiting and get to it. 

As a Writer...

  




  



Next up - my very first trip to Romance Writers of America National Convention in New York. It was amazing! The seminars and workshops were great and I met so many of my favorite authors! Oh and I can't forget all the crazy free books!

To say 2011 was a year full of awesome sauce would be putting it mildly. I've met so many new friends, discovered new books and authors, I can't wait for 2012 to get started. So no time like the present :)

Happy New Year Everyone! May 2012 Bring You Joy and Happiness and lots and lots of good books!

Get your read on!

These facts are really interesting. Few of them were well known for me but many of them were brand new for me too!
I will print this one out and show to my friends because they will be definitely interested in that. Thanks!
