But what this year has definitely taught me is that nothing can stop me from doing what I love - and that's writing. It's a dream to be able to do what I do, every day, and although it's a journey that can bring some frustrating and sometimes even upsetting lows, the highs I experience when somebody tells me they've loved one of my books is something I shall never take for granted. Ever.
So, to all of you who've taken a chance on this indie author, and taken the time to read my books, I just want to say thank you. A really BIG thank you. You make everything worthwhile; you give me a reason to keep writing. I really do love you all.
Right, I'm off to open the mince pies... I think it's about time now, don't you...?
