I’ll admit it. This “new year” blog post is late to the point of being ludicrous. But what a year 2014 was—plenty of smash-my-face-on-the-desk moments as well as little victories. It was the year in which I published my very first novel, and let me tell you, it was hard. Let’s say that again, for emphasis: It was haaaaaaaaaaaaard. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at my publishing journey.
