A new year looms, so there are new plans in place... by Natalie Anderson

So have you got goals in place yet? Dreamed up some resolutions for the New Year?

I really like the New Year festivities with all those traditions. I like to look back on the year that was and get excited about the year to come. It always seems rich with possibilities and plans. I'm really looking forward to 2013. 2012 was an okay year for me (definitely better than 2011 with the earthquakes and long aftermath) but I'm hoping 2013 will be a step up again--that would be very good ;)

Somehow life's gotten extremely busy - I guess having four kids will do that for you! And I'll admit it's been a struggle to fit in and achieve everything I've wanted to. To that end, I've made the decision to roam and become a 'cat in the wild' - so this will be my last regular post for the LoveCats. One of my 'goals' for 2013 is to focus mainly on the two primary things in my life--my family, and writing my stories. For now, that's all there's really space for. Which isn't to say I won't be surfing the net now and then and saying hi to all you lovelies here!

And I do love this blog - I love the writers on it, the readers, the positivity and the celebration of the wonderful romances we all love to read and to write. It's been an honor to have been a LoveCat and thank you so much for making my time here so nice.

So it's so long for now, but I'll see you again soon.

Here's to a happy, healthy and productive 2013!!!

With very best wishes,


  1. Aw, Nat, you know how sad I am to see you go, but I totally respect your decision to focus on your family and writing for a while.

    We've loved having your here, and remember, once a Cat, always a Cat. Don't be a stranger!

    Hope your 2013 is stellar. :)

  2. Seconding Rachel's comment about a stellar 2013 for you and your family, Natalie!

    I'm sorry to see you go roaming but don't forget that the 'cat flap' is always open so do come back to visit!


  3. Natalie, I wish you all the best in 2013. It's going to be sad not to see you here but it would be just terrible if you couldn't find the time to write books. Taking care of your family is a joy but an awesome undertaking when you have four kids. I don't have any but I watch my nieces and nephews trying to find time to do it all with their kids. Some days there are not enough hours. Take care of yourself and your family and drop in and tell us all when you have a new book out.

  4. Nat, I love a New Year and all the promise it brings. I hope 2013 is a stellar year for you (and all the LoveCats!), that you and your (large!) family make wonderful memories together and that many more of your fabulous books are released. :-)

    And don't forget to pop back from time to time to keep us posted on all your news.

  5. Thanks so much Rachel, Sharon, Kaelee and Michelle - I so appreciate your support and well wishes :) this is a very cool place to hang out and I'll definitely be popping back!

    Thank you :)

  6. I'm really join to miss you here, Nat! Raising four kids is a full time job in its own right - that you manage to write such gorgeous books at the same time is fantastic. Enjoy 2013 and all it brings.

  7. Natalie, we're going to miss you around here. But you are such a busy lady I'm not surprised something had to give. Be kind to yourself and do the things that are important to you and yours. Cheers.

  8. Natalie - I wish you all the best for 2013! And look forward to reading more of your wonderful books. And I'm sure we'll see you back here for a Sunday Smooch or two :)

  9. Nathalie, I'm sorry to be popping in late but wanted to wish you all the best for the new year. I'll be looking forward to seeing you pop back here from time to time. Good luck fitting in all you have to do!
