A better question is what happened IN 2017?
The answer? A LOT happened.
I edited three books for other authors, all of which are published. One of them won an award.
I had TWO books published, and they BOTH won awards!
I had a few small pieces published online.
I freelanced as a translator, newsletter writer, and language tutor.
I traveled to Texas...twice.
I taught a workshops at conferences.
I participated in several author events in PA and NY.
And did I mention that TWO of my books won awards???
Oh, yes. I did mention that. I'm still thrilled about it.
Prompted, Prodded, Published: How Writing Prompts Can Help All Writers won 2nd place in the business category at The Author Zone TAZ awards in October of 2017.
And My Mother Cried/Y Mi Mamá Lloró won BEST CHILDREN's BOOK for 2017 at the TAZ awards.
The next question is...what will happen in 2018?
The answer? Time will tell, but I have a lot of projects lined up.
Best of all? Leading writing friends through their journeys and expanding my network of writing friends.
