In late December I start reflecting on the year that has gone and look forward to new challenges in the New Year. A definite highlight of 2012 was selling my debut contemporary inspirational romance book to Harlequin’s Heartsong Presents line in the USA. I’ll have more information to share on this sale in the New Year.
2013 will bring a couple of opportunities to travel. I’m looking forward to going to Sydney in April to present a writing seminar hosted by Australian Christian Writers Fellowship. I grew up in Sydney and the book I sold to Harlequin is set in Sydney. The writing seminar details are below.
