I’m probably not alone in saying I am so glad that 2009 is over and done with. For me, it wasn’t one of the best years of my life. Combined with a handful of horrid colds & other medical issues, hours cut at work, a husband being laid-off, and lack of sales, I could say it was one of the worst out of forty and it had started at the end of November 2008…so it lasted a LONG time.
Then again, not all of 2009 was bad. It had its moments that I am grateful for. I met some wonderful people and gained a few new, terrific friends. The bad that happened helped me figure out what the good is and what I want out of life. And, I received some wonderful comments on my work.
To point out a few:
~ "C.R. Moss has an incredible ability to bring scenes alive and making the reader connect with each character on multiple levels." ~ Kristy Bock, PNR Reviews
~ “CR Moss is one of the best story tellers I have ever read, and I look forward to each new release!” Rie McGaha, author of Blood Line
~ The Decision (Wheel of Fortune, eXtasy Tarot series) was a Reviewers Top Pick! In the review, Jes said, "The Decision is a beautifully written story by C.R. Moss, with intuitive scenes that shifted and changed with the character … and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in paranormal erotica."

~ “Okay, so now I'm hooked and understand what the big buzz is concerning CR Moss–now to go find myself a prophecy, a man, some magic and some …well you get the picture.”

But now that 2009 is over and 2010 is shiny and brand new and the start of this year feels quite different than last year’s did, I’m ready to make and meet new goals. On a personal level I hope to reverse the fiscal fiasco the world market caused my family to have and to whip myself back into shape. I gained too much weight after I quit smoking seven+ years ago, and over the course of time, and it’s reached the point where I have to take the pounds off. And maybe once I get back to my pre-quit weight, I’ll have new photos taken and share what I look like on my sites. But don’t hold me to that! I seem to have developed an aversion to the camera in the past few years. ;) On a professional level, I have a lot of exciting projects planned for 2010 and more great releases coming out. Look for my first 2010 release, Beautiful People, at extasy books on March 1. That’s a psychological thriller with a hint of romance. Ash’s offspring, Michael, will be visiting my Dirty Little stories series in Dirty Little Girl and that’s slated for release on May 15 at extasy books. He and the heroine from Dirty Little Girl will revisit the story line in a longer work (which I will be shopping to publishers as part of an anthology because I want to expand my publishing base in 2010) tentatively titled Dirty Little Demons. Along with those stories, a series called Look What the Cat Dragged In will be released via Devine Destinies during the spring and summer. The first story ‘For Evelyn’ will be released on April 1. No joke! ;D My other projects include a story line I want to shop to NYC, so you’ll probably be seeing posts about my progress in regard to that. There’s a romantic suspense story line I’m developing for a new publisher. Then there’s the vampire/werewolf series I’ll be getting back to writing. Yes, I plan to be very busy with my writing along with guest blogging at various loops and participating in chats this year.
I want to thank you all for your support and readership over the past two years! I appreciate all my readers and hope to continue bringing you the terrific tales you’ve come to enjoy.
Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2010!
