What I learned in the New Year

Phew! it feels good to be back. I already feel giddy just typing this blog post.
Just in case you have been wondering what this blogger has been up to - I have been remembering what it feels like to have family around, having a 16 hour road trip with a toddler and a bad internet connection.

To start off my new year I am guest blogging today at Melinda Pierce Blog she has a new series called Warrior Wednesdays - Tales from the unpubbed, I seriously hope by the end of this year i will not be eligible for this series anymore. So please check out my battle scars here or here either ways check me out and I shall be all over your blogs in a minute too.

It feels good to be back.

  6. Welcome back!

    I just read your story on Melinda's blog. Rejection isn't easy! But one's skin does get tougher.

    I DO hope you won't be "unpubbed" much longer!! That this will be a great year for Joanna the author!! (I love the name Joanna. I have a Joanna granddaughter, age 20.)

  12. Welcome back, Joanna, and Happy New Year to you, too! If I were you, I think I could have done without that 16 hour road trip. Sounds unbearable! Oh, wait! I've been on my fair share of those as well. It is unbearable!

  19. Joanna,

    You didn't miss Nancy's book launch. It starts this Friday(tomorrow). Stop at Nancy's blog or mine for the schedule of events for the next three weeks.

    I am interviewing her main character on Monday. I hope to see you then.

    I have really missed you....
