Wednesday Blogging: 2015 in review – Best Memories of the last year

randomness

2015 wasn’t an exceptional year for me. In fact, the last two years have been pretty awful. But there are always bright spots in every story, and there were quite a few moments in 2015 that were amazing.

 

March – My “twin” Elise came down to visit and we attended The Vampire Diaries convention together. An entire weekend celebrating the awesomeness of TVD and fangirling all over the place? Sincerely EPIC. I got to meet Matt Davis (the inspiration for the hero in NEXT LIFETIME) and got not one but two photo ops with him…the second of which almost looks like a romance novel cover! We had a blast and my Paige name got a huge boost because I introduced myself as “Paige Prince, author/editor” every time I asked a question at the Q&A panels (thanks for recommending I do that, Elise!)

May – I went to the Austin Author Affair just a few hours away from my home in Houston. I got to see Bronwyn Green, Jessica Jarman, Kristi Boulware-Talbot, and Joanna Talbot (among many other of my amazing author friends), and I nearly sold out of my first book in print, Lost Treasure!

Sadly, the publisher of my first book, SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE, closed their doors. I miss my family at Secret Cravings very much, but it opened the door for me to start self publishing my own books. I admit, I like having total control of my books – picking my editor, my proofer, the COVER…and I have to say that my covers for LOST TREASURE and my upcoming release NEXT LIFETIME are gorgeous (I love Kris Norris so freaking hard).

I also got the chance to be part of the DARK PURSUIT anthology, featuring Kris Norris, Jessica Jarman, and Bronwyn Green (see fabulous cover above) and wrote my first ever paranormal romance, which I’m planning on turning into a series.

December – I recently made the decision to “come out” as Rhyann Harris – taboo erotic romance author. I’ve been self-publishing under that name since 2013, but I never connected Paige and Rhyann until now because I work at a Catholic hospital as my day job, and to be honest, I was a little worried that they’d find a reason to let me go when it came out that I write about step-family getting it on in my free time. But I don’t connect the hospital I work at with either name, my work is impeccable, and I’ve done nothing wrong or illegal. I shouldn’t be ashamed of what I write simply because it isn’t mainstream. Writing a book is fucking hard. And now that I have a home with Torquere Press for all my Rhyann titles, I want to flaunt my hard work.

I’m looking forward to 2016, and can’t wait to see what the year has in store for me!

    I think you got your picture taken with everyone at that con! And congrats on all the good book stuff. :)

      LOL I pretty much did. I think I missed like 2 people. And Ian. I didn’t get a solo photo with Ian. I’m still sad that I didn’t get Ian. But Paul…I got Paul. And I also got stupid because I completely forgot English when I was around him.

  2. Kris Norris

    Is it bad that I made all of those covers? LOL… here’s to an even better 2016.
