Happy New Year!!!

Hello Dear Readers! 

Yes, I'm back for a day or two to wish you all a Happy New Year and so that you'll have a fantastic year coming and that it will be full of wonderful things! 

2018 has been a challenging year for me,  but at the same time it was a year of many new doors opening for me, and I am very grateful for all the opportunities that I received! 

First of all, if you've been following my facebook or better said Instagram, as I pretty much moved over there :D I've finished my master degree and started a full-time job at prestigious company, hence,  as I've mentioned way back when I went on a hiatus from the blog, I might have returned, but the job is too demanding right now, hence I don't really have time to continue my reviews. I am still reading, and am still writing reviews, but I don't have time to post them, which is a pity, as I've been reading many many interesting books, and I would like for you to read them as well! But for those of you who have been following me on Goodreads, you might be seeing the reviews over there. I do need to reconcile the reviews there and over here one day, but it's too much to do right now... 

So what are my goals for 2019? First of all, find a good balance between work, my blog and personal life. Apparently, this should not be a myth, and I am eager to find this balance! If I will, I will definitely tell you about it! Secondly, I am thinking of changing a lot of things over here, to make it easier to post, though I may lose the unique layout of reviews that I created, I am ready to sacrifice it until the good times come around, as it takes too long for me to create a post, and I may be actually using Goodreads review layout to post here, tell me what you think about that. I will be adding some of my own design in the layout, but it will be fairly simple and will focus on the review, rather than on other things.  

I have other projects in progress, which may only see the daylight once I am sure people need such a project, hence I am entering a market research phase, which will go for at least half a year. As for my second baby apart from my blog - KC Book Promotions, this project that I started to see whether it could survive on skills I got from university, is still alive, and is already 3.5 years old. In a year and a half, we'll be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. I am super excited about that! While the blog was on a full-blown hiatus, the company has been working on small projects here and there, and I am very proud of what we have achieved, with only me, 2 hours per week and sometimes even less, and lots of dedication! 

I think I'm straying off the topic, but it's been so long since I wrote over here, and I missed it a lot! But anyway, I wish you all Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true and you have a joyful year ahead of you! 

XOXO
Katie

  1. what does it take to be a successful author ? I would say that initial reviews and marketing definitely boost your book. I used https://usabookreviewers.com/christmas-gift to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…
