Moving to a New Year

Oh I'll be glad to see the end of 2012. This has been a hard year for a number of reasons but I'm intending to turn it around in 2013.

And already I've seen a lot of improvement in regards to my writing. I placed Beauty and the Baritone for sale and it's been selling. I'm no E.L. James or even EW James or LOL James but for me, Lori Green, it's fun and exciting to see sales.

The other cool thing is that I'm seeing sales at all retailers. So Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance, Kobo and Smashwords. I've never seen that before.

Apparently people like thinly disguised fan fic starring my best friend, without anal. Who knew?

I'm going to making a minor announcement soon about Marinated Publishing (yup, still exists) and a new writer under the Marinated Banner. We hate her guts but she sells in Great Britain (I really don't understand Brits. They call the bathroom the loo and they buy bad porn.) (Isn't E.L.O.L. James British? Ha. Point to me.)

This is the year that my daughter will start eating. I say that based on the holidays and she's been eating some of my cooking... enough to make me stop worrying that she'll starve to death.

This is also going to be the year of Elle's Designs. Trust me. My girl Lea/Elle can rock a cover with the best of them and we're going to show you. Get ready to place your order.

More than anything, I think this is the year of getting it done. I'm the Queen of Procrastination and 2013 will be the year that ends. Which means my kitchen will get painted, my bills will get paid off and my Hollywood Heroes series will get finished.

And for Carolyn? Well, that's for her to share.

Yoo Hoo, Carol? Time to tell us what's going on.


  1. Well I'm ...

    And then there's ....

    Of course I need to finish ...


  2. *raising water bottle*

    Hear, hear!

    Best of everything for both of you, ladies!

  3. Yay for sales and other good news!

  4. That's fantastic news ladies.

    ... and here's to thinly veiled fan fiction too. Let's be having more of it.

    I started to get excited about the DIY project again this morning. It's been on the back burner so long it was in danger of turning into pudding.

    But a little 'blop' sounded in my head (while I was under the shower... why does that always happen to me?) and I could see a way forward.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it starts bubbling again.

  5. I'm hoping mine does too, Cheryl.
