Romance and Adventure Among the Stars

Happy New Year

Posted by Leslie on January 2, 2022
I hope you had a good one! Mine was a quiet celebration with friends, all hosted online - not the best, but not the worst, either. Now it's time to look back at 2021 as it falls into the deep pit of history, never to return.

The Good:

I published books! And people liked them! 

Tied to the Alien Tyrant was a fun one to write, and satisfying. It finished off the Crashland Castaway Romance trilogy,  leaving me free to work on the next phase of the Crashland Colony Saga. Look for the first of the Crashland Contact Romance trilogy, coming soon.

And I'm over the moon with the response to Alien's Mercy, my entry in the shared-world Outlaw Planet Mates series. It's been wild,  I've never gotten so many reviews and it's only been out a month and a half! 300 reviews, more than half of them 5 stars. I'm glad my audience liked reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I'm definitely planning to go back to the Outlaw Planet for another book. Plus I got to work with a bunch of awesome authors.

Writing a novella for the Monsters After Dark anthology was fun, too. A great chance to collaborate with some friends both old and new, and contribute to a great collection of stories.

The Bad

... it was 2021. Do I need to say more? I hit a writing slump and didn't get as much done as I'd hoped.

And some bad medical news - nothing too terrible, fortunately, but it's made a big difference to my life which I'm still adjusting to. 

It's been a strange, tough year, and there's no promise that 2022 will be better. But I'm going into it with a determination to be getting up from the slump and get more done this year!
