End of the Year Thoughts...

Updated: May 1, 2019



As I sit here watching the last of the NFL season and taking note of who will make the playoffs, I get the chance to reflect on a few things from this past year. Some good, some not so good. It has been a roller-coaster year on a lot of different fronts, but thankfully a lot of it has resolved itself, while other things I'm hopeful to have a resolution soon.

i got to see my beloved Wakanda come to life on the big screen during my birth month, which honestly was one of the highlights of the year for me. T'Challa and the rest of the royal family has been a part of me since I was a preteen, so, to see them finally get the love they deserved was more than words can say.

I was able to release one new book and re-release two more books this year, which was more daunting than I gave credit for. I'm not sure whether I will have the energy to do something like that in the upcoming year due to familial and professional obligations, but if I do, you'll be the first to know.

I've made a promise to myself to be more interactive this next year. I'm already plotting how my week is supposed to go so you know what days to look forward to. I'm also going to TRY to showcase some things I'm working on here and there, just so you know that I'm still trying to produce.

I'm looking forward to being at two book events next year. This is huge for me; normally, I don't do a lot of book events, but I'm trying to step out of my shell a little more after being more of a hermit crab the past couple of years due to health issues with my Beloved and needing to get that under control so she can travel with me to these events.

Finally, I'm looking forward to everything that 2K19 will bring for me as an author. I'm excited over the possibilities that lie ahead, starting with the anthology that I'm a part of, due for release on January 16th, called Just One Kiss. I can't wait for you to read it, it will be a great start to the year!

I know I keep saying it, but it bears repeating: thank you for being a part of my journey, I truly appreciate it more than you could possibly know. Cheers!
