Happy New Year!

by Marsha Ward

What a lot of experiences we've all had this past year! New books, new technology, new babies, new adventures. A lot of the same lies ahead of us, and much more. Each new year brings challenges, satisfactions, and griefs. This is life.

I want to encourage you to find new things to enjoy in 2011. I'd like you to find one new author to read and follow, and one new book genre to explore. If you like mysteries, check out historical novels. If you like romance, check out Westerns. Expand your horizons. 

Write a note of appreciation to your favorite author. Find a way to deliver it. Are they on Facebook? LinkedIn? Blogspot? Wordpress? Twitter? Reach out and discover. If they aren't updated on technology, send it to their publisher or agent.

May you all have a blessed and prosperous New Year!
