Looking Forward to 2017.

Happy Saturday book-lovers! I'm here for a final hello of 2016.

I've always found the last day of the year a bit of a strange one. It's the perfect moment to look back over the year and reflect, but I prefer to look forward to what's in store for the new year. Sure, 2016 has had its up and downs- but now's the moment to get excited about what 2017 will bring us. So- here are a few thoughts and ideas for the year to come...

The reading...

I can't resist a challenge going into 2017, so I think a bit of a reading target is in order. I'm hoping to read 100 books this year. I'll keep track of this here on the 2017 Reads tab, if you'd like to check out my progress!

The blogging...

I'll be posting a minimum of one post per day, Monday-Friday throughout 2017, and the plan is to post at 7.30 a.m, and if there is a second post for the day, this will appear at 1 p.m. As ever, there will be a range of news, reviews and interviews for book lovers, and I'm also looking forward to expanding the range of posts to include features of interest to writers too. I'm really looking forward to welcoming a range of guests on the site over the year- with book news, original fiction, interviews and features.

The writing...

In 2016, I completed the first draft of what turned into the first book of an epic fantasy trilogy. Spring 2017 will see me on my first set of re-writes, as I delve into the exciting process of editing and, eventually, seeking representation.

The people...

I had the real pleasure of meeting a whole bunch of authors, bloggers and publishers this year, and hope to get the chance to meet even more of you in 2017. There's nothing quite like putting faces to names, and have the opportunity to interrogate chat about books face-to-face.

So- there we have it. 2017 and I'm looking forward to meeting it head-on. What about you? Any special plans or New Year's resolutions? Whatever they may be, I wish a happy and healthy New Year to you all.

See you on the other side,
