It's been an awesome year of blogging at Novels On The Run.

I have met so many lovely authors and bloggers and chatted about the blogosphere. 

Thank you to all of you who have come along and viewed the postings. It makes writing them that much more enjoyable knowing so many of you are reading them.

Big thank you to all the publishers who have given Novels On The Run books for review, it is greatly appreciated.

Time to change things up in 2014. Blog Tours, Cover Reveals and Blitz's will still be happening but I will be channeling more time into reviewing a wide range of genres in all age brackets of my interest and choosing. I will be only picking a few tours for the year to review for. They are very time consuming and it's time to mix it up more with library reads and all those bad ass long Urban Fantasy series I want to binge on, plus the awesome ARC's I receive. 

I have my Kindle full of purchases that I NEED to read or else those puppies are just going to be wasted with the money I spent on them. Lots of amazing Indie Authors to review.

I love reading at night into the weee hours, hubby has his little eye mask to keep him happy with my light blaring in his eyes. Happy hubby makes happy reading. I bought him a commando army one. Makes him look more manly with his eye mask on.


He may not want you to know he has a commando army eye mask.


Thank you to all the followers for dropping by commenting and just taking the time to view the postings. I got up to an average of just weee shy of 50,000 views during this year per month average and those are very exciting numbers for the blog to receive.

We are holding the annual Tiki Bar Cocktail event tonight for NYE, so I am dusting her off and getting her all ready to partaaay. Throw some ambiance outside and we are cooking with gas. I have been preparing for this event for a couple of days. Just need to do the food, pop the champas and enjoy our friends for the night.

This is what my New Year in 2000 looked like when I lived in Sydney. Now, not so much in my forest up the coast of Queensland. 

But there may be some fireworks in the air. Wherever you are in the world I hope you are spending it with the ones you love. No I didn't take this pic, mine are not quite so fantastic.
