New Years Blog Hop- Jan 1-6

Welcome one, and welcome all, to the New Years Blog Hop!

First off, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

http://carrieannbloghops.blogspot.com/
For those that have been long time followers since the beginning, thank you for continuing to follow me on this journey.  It's been an amazing year and I've enjoyed sharing many different authors with you. It's been a great blogging /year.


I think New Years signifies in with new and out with the old. What a year 2012 was, good and bad, I know, for many of us. I hope that 2013 brings a much better year.  I plan on celebrating tonight with friends, and though there have been many losses and hardships, the fact that we're still here and breathing signifies something. We've won, we're still going on with our lives, no matter the battles we've encountered. That counts for something, right? Say good-bye to the angers you've held on to. Start again. Make new goals for yourself, and just make it the best year that you can, so that when this time comes around next year, you can look back and say "Hey, this is what I accomplished, this is what i did!"

If y'all recall, I made a post of 2012 debut authors to watch. i want to connect readers with these great authors, so as my prize, I will give the winner a choice of a ebook of one of these authors. My goal is to give a reader another great author to read!

For that list, check out this link: http://www.stormgoddessbookreviews.blogspot.com/2012/12/2012-debut-authors-to-watch.html

I hope you'll give this blog a follow! There's always fun going on here, and you may find some authors you've never read before and love!
