Janus, god of beginnings. *

Welcome to 2011!

Here’s my horoscope for the year:

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 17)
Opportunities to make a name for yourself abound through the first six months of 2011. The backup arrives Jan. 15 when Mars marches into your sign adding authority to personal communications. (Know it’s there, but don’t overdo it!) Make a highly important decision when the fateful new moon touches down Feb. 2 and expect to see its culmination Aug. 13 when the eclipsed full moon explodes in your sign.

Okay, you heard it here first. A name, Martian communications, a highly important decision, and a culmination. Sounds like it’s gonna be quite a year!

The lovely thing about blogs is that I can go back and check this in 2012 and see how it all comes out.

2010 was quite a year. I wrote a novel, sold another novel, traveled to England and met friends old and new, suffered a crisis of confidence, regained said confidence, journeyed to the underworld (well, Carlsbad Caverns) and returned to the light. I relearned how to ride a horse over fences. The family got a puppy (and anyone who has ever had a puppy knows that this is incredibly life-changing).

For 2011, I’m looking forward to shepherding The Unexpected Miss Bennet into publication, going to conventions, finishing the editing and polishing of the third Gordath Wood novel (soon to be revealing potential titles, with perhaps some help from my readers), and starting the next book in the series.

There will also be changes to the blog, as the new year brings so many changes to my life and career.  Stay tuned, and as always, friend Gordath Wood on Facebook to show you care.

Welcome to the New Year! What are your plans?

Janus is one of my favorite gods from Roman mythology. He’s actually one of the major characters in the book I’m working on right now.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how The Unexpected Miss Bennet comes along!

Interesting horoscope. If I see you with tinfoil on your head, I won’t need to ask any questions. 🙂

What? You don’t believe in horoscopes?

That gives me an idea for one of those experience books like Eat Pray Love or The Year of Living Biblically: someone should go a year living according to their horoscope. I’d love to see how that one comes out. (Not me, you understand, but someone.)

Audrey, I like that you have Janus in your latest work. The god of doorways is just so cool.
