A Naughty New Year to You!

Every year I spend New Year's Day thinking up goals for the coming year.  This year, I've decided to look back at 2010.  One of my 2010 goals was to read at least a book a month outside my normal genres of romance/erotic romance.  I'm happy to see that I far exceeded my goal.

Now that I've had such a great reading year in 2010, I have decided to up the ante in 2011. I am going to try to write something outside of my normal genre.  Sooooo, here's to a creative and different 2011. 

Happy New Year!
