I can't believe 2013 is here!!!! 2012 has been such an amazing year! Why you ask? Well, let me give you a quick recap of my 2012:
1. Revamped the blog and started the Indie Author of the Month, Extra! Extra! Read All About It!, & Hops, Tours, & Partays segments
2. Celebrated 12 years with the hubs and our first year of marriage
3. Went to the beach on vacay
4. Gave the invocation at a WV Senatorial Debate (with 100 ppl in attendance) and did not stutter or fall off the stage
5. Completed 9 MBA courses with flying colors
6. Sent Soul Survivor to the most amazing editor ever along with some equally awesome betas
7. Clocked another year with my awesome employer as a full time CPA
8. Started 5 WIPs (I hope to finish at least 2 of them in 2013.)
9. Read 55 books (There were a lot of sleepless nights but boy was it worth it!)
10. And enjoyed another year of life, love, health, family, and friends!
Speaking of those friends, I’d like to give a shout out to some people who truly changed my life for the better and made 2012 off the charts for me. I’ll try to keep it brief but the list is kind of long but if you hang tight you will be rewarded with giveaways, I promise. ;)
To my 2012 Indie Authors of the Month - Tiffany King, Michelle Muto, Devyn Dawson, and M. Leighton, thank you so very, very much for spending an entire month with me and all my craziness. Having you, your work, and your characters on my lil ole blog makes me feel like a super mega cool celebrity blog host. You guys rock!
To my 2013 Indie Authors of the Month - Courtney Cole, Paulina Ulrich, and David James, thank you for agreeing to partake in the craziness that is me and my blog. We are going to have so much fun! I can't wait to see what hotties, books, and such are in store for 2013!
To Tiffany King, Chelsea Fine, Adriane Boyd, Paulina Ulrich, Courtney Cole and David James (x2) thank you soooo much for allowing me to host partays for your new releases. They are so much fun and being a part of release day is such a thrill for me. You make me feel like a blogger super star! A special thanks to David James for inspiring the awesome partay idea with the Light of the Moon release and for being the first victim. ;)
To Hollie, you are the best! Thank you so very much for helping me through my journey with Soul Survivor. Your attention to detail, constructive feedback, and overall editing talents are unbelievable. I am and will be forever grateful.
To my betas, Michele, Jennifer, Danielle, Heather, & Paulina, thank you for agreeing to read Soul Survivor. Your feedback is priceless and unbelievably eye opening! Thank you for your time and efforts in helping me make this book something amazing!
To my twitter peeps, @chelemybelles, @javalotta, @Gabyil, @SPNHeather, @TessMWatson,
@danilove413, @PaulinaUlrich, @miztrebor, and all of the rest of you lovely tweeps
I've chatted with this year, thank you
for all the retweets, mentions, and super fun conversations. You guys understand
a side of me that not too many people know…Michelle Nicole - the writer/book
To all my Facebook fans and friends, thank you for all the comments and "LIKES"…you make me feel like the popular cool kid I never got the chance to be in high school.
To my PenPal, crit partner, beta, and sister from another mother, Paulina, you have no idea how much happiness and fulfillment your friendship has brought to my life. We are going to have so much fun at UTOPYA this summer. I cannot wait! I can always count on you to understand all of the book/blog epicness that occurs in my life. You are a blessing! Thank you!
To my husband, my family, my friends, and my co-workers, I'm so grateful that you listen to my fanatical book/writing adventures even though you have no idea what I'm talking about most of the time. LOL! I am so blessed to have you all in my life.
To my furry children, thank you for forgiving my neglectful ways and always standing (or sitting or sleeping) by me while I blog, read, write, and do everything else. Thank you for those interruptions to feed you/take you out because otherwise I would never leave my desk.
And finally to my followers, tweeps, FB friends, fellow bloggers, indie authors, and anyone else I haven't mentioned in the cyber community, thank you! Thank you for participating and promoting all of the fun and love that has happened this year on my little blog, Share the Love. Giveaways are no fun if no one shows up to play! Thank you for allowing me to make you a winner or at least entertain you with Indies, Partays, and everything in between!
So, as a token of my appreciation for an amazing 2012 I want to give you the chance to fill your Kindles, Nooks, iPads, and such with phenomenal e-books from my favorite and my soon to be favorite authors! This is what's waiting for you…
