Happy (Almost) New Year!

After a holiday hiatus, I’m back!

First, a piece of shameless promotion: through Saturday, my book, The Historian, is FREE as an e-book on Amazon! http://www.amazon.com/Historian-Rachel-Bohlen-ebook/dp/B00OZ85SI2/ With this free e-book promotion, the book has jumped to #66 in its subgenre! (Science Fiction – Dystopian) Go check it out, and I hope you like it.

Second, I am absolutely ready for 2014 to be over. Looking back, it was a strange year. I moved to a new place, transferred to a different job, and published my first book, which are great things. But on the other hand, my father passed away, as did a friend of mine. I spent most of 2014 feeling like I was in some sort of haze.

I don’t really want to do a list of New Year’s resolutions. Like most people, I never fulfill them. But I do have general things I’d like to do – I’d like to live my life with a better sense of purpose. I’d like to be healthier (meaning, I know that I need to drink less and eat better). I’d also like to push myself out of my introverted shell more.

And of course, I’d like to write more. I’m proud of myself for how much I wrote during 2014 – in total, across all projects, it was over 110,000 words. For the new year, I started using a great website to track my word count: WordKeeperAlpha. I really love it – and it has charts! I’d highly recommend it to any writer who needs the extra incentive of organization to keep going.

Happy holidays to all, and here’s to a wonderful 2015! If you are doing resolutions, I’d love to hear them (and how you plan to meet them)!
