Not only do I believe in making New Year’s Goals (see Monday’s Risky Regencies Blog but I also think this time of year is a good time to take stock in Where-One-Is-Right-Now. A status report!
1. Writing Life – Chivalrous Captain, Rebel Mistress is released from Mills and Boon in the UK this month, and for a little while over the weekend it hit Number 3 in sales at millsandboon.co.uk . The third book in the series, “Gabriel’s Story, is on the editor’s desk, complete, revised, and awaiting the final copy edits. Now I’m writing an Undone that connects with the third book and features characters you meet in that book.
2. Research Life – I have purchased several research books with my Christmas Amazon gift cards and I’m currently reading London’s Sinful Secret by Dan Cruikshank. “The Bawdy History and Very Public Passions of London’s Georgian Age.” I also just bought the books (not ebooks) mentioned at Number One London.
3. Life with Friends – You know about my visit to the National Gallery of Art. Last night I had a potluck dinner with my friends Julie and Carol. Our little threesome bonded during our 2005 England tour and have been friends since.
4. Entertainment Life – no, I didn’t do anything exciting for New Year’s Eve. I stayed home and watched The Count Of Monte Cristo, my latest Netflix movie. But this week dh and I purchased a Roku device that lets us stream the Watch Instantly Netflix movies to our TV. The first night I watched North and South (loved it, as everyone said I would!) and last night I watched An Education (also loved it). I have a whole list of movies I can see! I love this device!!!!
What’s the status of the various aspects of your life?
