So I did not get much done in the way of writing, but I did get my first novel, Duffy Barkley is Not a Dog, into a free promotion on Kindle and that resulted in 230 downloads from Amazon and 40 more from Amazon UK and then I sold another few copies of the second Duffy Barkley book, Duffy Barkley: Seek Well, and I have reason to hope that at least a few of those copies will result in reviews and recommendation and good word of mouth.
I also found my book listed on a site as a 5-star recommendation for Tweens and older. That made me smile.
So now, my sister-in-law warns me that the world will change a lot this year. It can certainly change in many ways for the better, but I am greeting 2012 with joy, life is not easy, but it is worth it.
