I know this isn't my regular Monday to post but I wanted to share... =)
In a few days it’ll be my birthday! So far I haven’t freaked out too much… Well, there was this one little episode when I thought about how close this b-day brings me to the big 4-0. I don’t feel my age, nor do I think I really look it (tho the grays in my hair may say otherwise), so how can I be so close to this milestone? Where did the time go? In years past during my b-day I’ve thought about my goals and what I did and didn’t achieve. I’m happy that this year I can check off one of the things I wanted to accomplish before I turned forty and that was get published. Another goal I’ve set for myself that I need to reach before the big 4-0 is to lose the weight I gained when I quit smoking six and a half years ago. That’s been such a battle for me. I figured I need a way to be more accountable when it comes to this particular goal so I set up a blog called Casey’s Challenge. I plan to start blogging and beginning my weight loss journey this week. Feel free to follow me and my progress: http://www.caseyschallenge.blogspot.com/ Now that forty is around the corner I’ve been thinking of new goals… maybe start competing with hubby (the idea of doing the Cozumel Ironman crossed our minds) but since I’m not much of a runner I don’t know if that’s such a great goal… expand the number of houses I’m published at… write a story to pitch to a traditional/NY publisher… get published by a traditional/NY house… But for the moment I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished and the fact that I have two releases out this month ~ one with eXtasy Books (04/01) and another with Devine Destinies (04/15).
In celebration of my special day and having reached my goal of being published I’m holding a drawing for a free book! Comment to this blog between now and Sunday April 19 at 8 PM PST and your name will be entered into the drawing. Sunday night I will put all the names into a hat, one will be drawn and the lucky winner will be announced on my blog on Monday. The winner will receive a list of titles to choose a book from. Good Luck!
