Happy New Year!

I always begin a new year with anticipation. I know that there will be many new experiences and projects to look forward to and that prospect is thrilling.

The big news this week is that I picked up the first printing of Patchwork Path: Grandma's Choice. It's a lovely first volume for this series. One of my favorite things in life is going to the post office to ship off books that have been ordered. The trip this week was no exception. It felt great to wait in line at the post office while balancing the dozens of boxes. I didn't mind the attitude of all the other patrons who had to wait while the postmaster placed a postage label on each box and padded envelope, the next step in the journey of hundreds of pre-orders finally shipping out to their new homes. After all, each shipped package represents a sale and I'm in this business to sell books.

While I'm not a fan of New Year resolutions, I have vowed to do a better job keeping up with bookkeeping and paperwork in 2009. If anyone out there has a system that works well, please send me an email and share!

Keep Moving Forward!
