Out with the Old…

As 2019 draws to a close, I’d like to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2020! Normally on the last Tuesday of the month, I like to share what I’ve been reading. I’ll get back to that schedule in January, but today I’m going to share a few of my (many) New Year’s resolutions.

FYI, I have a love-hate relationship with resolutions and there have been years I’ve refused to make any, but this year I’m determined to make them, stick to them, and succeed at them.

First, I am committed to releasing four books in 2020, beginning with Be My Valencrime (Book 4 in the Juniper Junction Holiday Mystery Series) and including Ghouls’ Night Out (Book 5 in the Juniper Junction Holiday Mystery Series), Dutch Treat (Book 2 in the Libraries of the World Mystery Series), and Cape Island Menace, a tentatively-titled historical mystery set in Cape May, New Jersey. This will be the first book in a new series set in Cape May.

Second, I want to eat a more plant-based diet. My family has done pretty well with eliminating meat for at least one or two meals a week, and I would love to continue the trend and make it three or four meals a week. This only includes dinners, by the way. Breakfast for us is almost always meat-free, and lunches are meat-free about half the time.

This is neither my house nor my backyard. 😉

Third, by the time 2020 is over, I WILL have a plan to landscape my backyard. I may not start the work, but a plan will be in place. More on this later.

I would love to read about your resolutions, the goals you’re setting for yourselves, and your reflections of the year that’s coming to an end, so please share in the comments.

Happy New Year!

Until next time,

Amy
