Happy New Year

First things first, we have a couple winners to announce here.  Deb Salisbury won a paperback of whichever one of my books she wants.  Fran won a postcard and a PDF copy of whichever one of my present or future releases she wants.  Both Deb and Fran need to contact me via email at besanderson at gmail dot com and let me know what their preference is.

The Goodreads giveaway for BloodFlow ended last night and I'm just waiting for the winner's info to arrive in my inbox.  The Goodreads giveaway for Wish in One Hand is through the end of today, so click the link and enter for a chance to win one paperback copy of that with the new and improved cover.  Plus I'm chucking in a bookmark and a postcard, cuz that's how I roll.

Okay, so with that out of the way, I suppose I should look back or look forward or something.  New Years Day is for stuff like that, right?  Except thinking about it last night, I realized that other than swapping out a new calendar and spreadsheet, not much will change.  Last year, I made the big change to self-publishing.  This year will be more of the same.  Fingers crossed that it's even better than it was.

And that's really what New Years means to me.  A hope for better things.  Even after a year that was pretty darned good - all things considered - I would hope for a 'continuing better things'.  Otherwise, it's backsliding or stagnation.  And who wants that?

So, my hope for you all is a wonderful New Year filled with special surprises - happy things and things that make you glow.  A year overflowing with better things.

And I'll be doing a look-back kind of post on Sunday over at The Writing Spectacle for more personal things and Monday at Outside the Box for professional things.  I hope you'll stop by.


  1. Woohoo! I'm so happy to win! Thanks, B.E.!

    Happy New Year!

  2. The end of this year has been hard for friends--deaths in the family. For once, me and mine are ending on a level note. A nice change. I'm hoping for a busy 2016, filled with good surprises, hard work, success, and good health. I wish the same to everyone else.

    And I'm not going anywhere. I'll be hanging around here for another year cuz that's how I roll. ;) Happy New Year, m'friend!

  3. I entered, although I already own the digital version (more apt to read the paper first, though!). Happy New Year!!!
