Smile Somebody Loves You New Year’s Eve Blog Hop


When we look ahead at the new year approaching, it’s filled with possibilities. All it takes for those possibilities to come to fruition is our determination and perseverance to see that the steps necessary to make those possibilities a reality are executed well.

As a fiction writer, romance to be exact, I thought I’d share with you the dreams  that a couple of my favorite heroines have for the coming year. Until I type a word, their stories have endless possibilities!

1. Hannah Livingston, from TRINITY(A Brethren Novel):

It’s been 30 human years. Hannah is all grown up, at 36, and about to become immortal, just like her parents Emma and Michael. Her dream, for as long as she can remember, has been to fight alongside the Brethren warriors, and like most people, to find an eternal love of her own. But, who will it be? She yearns to be able to share her life completely with another, but has been bound by law to hold back. Can she continue keeping secrets from a mortal lover for the sake of normalcy, or will the inevitable threaded connection between them make that impossible? She may decide to seek another of her kind who she can be totally open and honest with about everything. But who?

IT’S UP TO ME TO LISTEN TO HANNAH’S HEART, PROVIDE HER WITH POSSIBILITIES, AND LET HER CHOOSE… Will it be Kemuel, Brethren Warrior and Class A lunkhead? Gabriel, Brethren Protector and longtime friend and colleague? Cassiel, Brethren Savior and close friend? Or someone completely unexpected???

ANGEL RISING (A Brethren Novel, #4),  coming soon!

2. Camille Dutton,  from The Book Waitress Series:

camillePossibilities abound for our reluctant heroine! Camille is facing a long, dangerous road to the world’s salvation and Satan’s ultimate demise. What does she dream will become reality during this coming year? With no hope of wrapping things up quickly and closing Hell’s portal, she dreams of days filled with demon slaying and endless nights of passion with her own personal ice demon, JaxSynn. She wishes that the brutal demon crossing over warning system her body has become somehow breaks so that the agonizing attacks will end. In the deep recesses of her mind, tucked away neatly, she hopes that when this quest for human survival is over, JaxSynn will choose to stay with her.

WHAT KIND OF EVILS AWAIT HER ON THIS MORTAL MISSION? JUST HOW MANY ENDLESS NIGHTS OF TORRID LOVEMAKING WILL SHE HAVE WITH JAXSYNN BEFORE SOMETHING GETS IN THEIR WAY? If she plays her cards right, it’s gonna be a bumpy, hair-raising, “oh, you really went there” kinda ride. Am I sadistic towards the characters I love so much? Only when it comes to writing the best story possible.

A-HUNTING WE WILL GO (Book Waitress, #4), coming soon!

AND NOW FOR MY wishes and dreams for the coming year…

Naturally, I want my family, friends, and I to be happy, healthy, and prosperous in the new year. In particular, and tapping into my publishing aspirations, I am working toward a coveted spot on the USA TODAY and/or NYTBS author list. Lofty goals, to be sure. But there was a time when the possibility of getting a first book published was a pie-in-the-sky dream for me. I’ve come a long way in just four years.

Tell me what possibilities lay ahead for you this coming year and you are entered to win an eBook of your choice from my collection!

    Mainly I hope for health for my family, as well as for the kiddos I work with every day. For myself, I hope to continue to do well in school (36 years old and attempting a degree >.<).

    1. deenaremiel says:

      Kassandra, you can do it! My husband turns 50 this year, and he’s just graduated with a BS in Business Management. I wish you the perseverance and determination to finish. ❤

  3. I am hoping for better organization in my review scheduling process, perhaps the implementation of a much larger and more effective calendar, more involvement in my children’s atrocious public school, and *big, painful gulp* to overcome my fears and at least make an attempt at SOME type of creative writing – even if it’s only a paragraph. I’ve given up on improved health for myself (so maybe it’ll happen), but I’m hoping the entire year will be better than 2013 was. Hope is a good thing.

    1. deenaremiel says:

      Hope is EVERYTHING, Michelle. Hope feeds your determination to succeed. I will add my hope to yours! ❤

  21. Your books sound fabulous, especially the ice demon and the name JaxSynn– love it. My keyword for this year is joy. Gratitude comes into play too. I hope to be organized enough to publish a holiday story, while still meeting my other writing deadlines. Here’s to meeting our goals! 2014 blessings to you and yours.
