With a new year comes new challenges and new changes. I'll continue working to refresh the look of my blog, but that's going to be slow going probably over the course of this month and next. I've got three writing challenges on my plate this month, as well as setting myself an editing challenge. I'm probably going to restructure the blog to be more specific to what I share. This page will still be home to my writing challenges, but I hope to also share more about what I'm actually writing and how that's going for me. I hope to create a new page on which to share book reviews. We'll just see where that all goes...
On with the challenges!
I'm glad my reading goal went so well in 2019. This leaves me a nice cushion for sharing the reviews. However, this year, I'm going to try to slow down a bit and read one book each week. I'm almost positive I'll exceed the goal because my husband and I are still reading together on longer drives. But I definitely want to put more of my energy into getting Surge published this year. Yep, you heard correctly. Chronologically, this book must come next in the series, so Over Land & Under Stone will be shelved for a while. I'm considering some serious rewriting for it, especially at the beginning.
On to the book reviews!
Time to finish up the December writing challenges and embrace some more writing challenges or editing challenges in January. I'll be working on Surge so I need to try to find a challenge that'll work with where I am in that project. But before then, I need to finish up the last few days of the December prompts.
Happy New Year! I'm welcoming 2020 at Robin Takes the Scenic Route with two book reviews of a couple of awesome non-fiction books I enjoyed during 2019. Technically, I've been enjoying one of them since probably 2016, but... XD
On with the reviews!
How was your holiday? Or are you still celebrating? How's it going? I hope you're enjoying the holiday season and getting lots of rest, laughter and the warmth that comes from friends and family who care about you. I'm writing this before Christmas, but I'll update you on my holiday in January as we'll be very busy from now until then.
On with the challenges!
Welcome back for another round of book reviews! I'm happy to be able to share another book from one of my favorite new authors. The other book wasn't as fascinating to me, but maybe you will find it more to your liking than I did. Check them out!
Another week down and we're that much closer to Christmas. I can't believe how fast the days speed by. I guess I have too much to do. LOL
On with the challenge posts!

May the Holiday Season Be Happy and Bright for You and Your Loved Ones!
Whatever holiday you celebrate, whether it be Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, or just the coming of the new year, I wish you every happiness now and in the year to come! My family celebrates Christmas, so Merry Christmas!
I've got a couple of historical romance book reviews for you this week. I hope you'll see something you like. As the holidays draw near, my commentary may grow shorter. I still have plenty to do to keep me busy -- busy enough to wonder if I'll have much time for revisions and writing at all. :/
December's well under way and so are my writing challenges. I'm so looking forward to spending time with family during Christmas. After living in Texas three years and being so far away from some of our family, that's one of the things we consider a real treat since moving back home. What are you looking forward to during your holiday season?
Keeping up with writing challenges isn't easy. I guess if it was, it wouldn't be called a challenge. XD But I did my best this week. Here's what I've got.
I mostly read romance novels this year and I can honestly say that's because the 100 book goal was driving me on. But now, it's ingrained and I'm having trouble switching back to fantasy. Most of the books I'll share with you this month will be romance novels and these are no exception.
