I did it (and farewell for now)!

Hi,

As you can see, the progress bars in the left sidebar have all turned green. I made my yearly goal for writing 150,000 new words of fiction and translating them. That means I'll have a lot of publications for next year. The first one is going to be the non-linear novel that I started so many years ago (some of you might still remember).

It also means that I'll have to learn more about marketing (and implement what I learn). Therefore posts to this blog will probably remain sporadic as best. I'll try to let you know about marketing strategies that work for me, and about my new releases, but that's all I'll have time for in 2017.

In total 2016 has been a hard year for me. When my father was diagnosed with breast cancer, my world crumbled and I was unable to write, read, or learn anything new. The whole family was in a sort of limbo. Only when it became clear after the operation that he'd fully recover, I managed to get back to +-normal. I sincerely hope that the next year will be more gentle to all of us.

Have a wonderful Christmas and get into the new year safely.
All the best,
Katharina
