Wow. I worked my butt off this year.
I love these end-of-year wrap-ups because they give you a chance to pause and really look at all you’ve accomplished in a given year.
I didn’t feel like I accomplished much this year because there’s always more I want to do and that leaves me constantly feeling behind, but look at this shelf. This is a whole career’s worth of work, and I did all of it in 2022.
I didn’t do it all myself, of course. Some of this is collaborative work. To the left, the beautiful hardback editions of Filthy Elites that Mystic Box did (along with the artwork that went with my book), the gorgeous edition of Even if it Hurts that Bookish Buys made for their September box, the stunning hardcover and paperback special editions of Untouchable Cover to Cover did for their Frozen Dreams box, and the lovely special edition of Untouchable that Dark Heart Romance Book Box did in June.
Stitches got an anniversary edition this year (which includes the short story featuring our throuple that is in A Valentine’s Day Treat so you have all the Seb/Moira/Griff words all in one place).
I combined my Christmas stories in The Christmas Collection so you could have them all in one bundle.
I finally made my Irreparable duet available in paperback.
This year’s bestseller Descent got a gorgeous discreet cover to match its people cover.
I also wrote a dark, steamy book featuring a stalkery obsessed hero with one of my best friends.
Bully God was where I debuted Gemma and Hayden’s story Undertow, and then it released on its own with a beautiful discreet cover option. (And now it’s available in audio!)
Dare and Aubrey were first introduced in Filthy Elites, then got their solo release Even if it Hurts which has my very favorite discreet cover I’ve ever seen. (We’ll see if next year’s Coastal Elite discreets give them any competition.)
Finally, Resisting Mr. Granville. Probably my last forbidden romance (other than any I already have planned in other series) but definitely one of the hottest books I’ve ever written.
I made the USA Today bestseller list this year.
I published my 30th book this year.
I also went to ApollyCon and Shameless this year and got to meet so many of my awesome readers.
Overall, I think I can say it was a pretty successful year.
I couldn’t have done any of it without you, so thank you.
Thank you so much for reading my books, for sharing and telling your friends about them. For all you do to make book world a generally awesome place. You’re the best!
So, now, I can say Happy New Year.
See you in 2023!
