Welcome to the January Newsletter for 2021! It has been a while since I wrote a newsletter due to computer issues. I’m back now! Here is a link to my last newsletter if you haven’t read it: https://www.victoriamayburybooks.ca/2020/10/09/october-newsletter-2020/. Today, I will be talking about what will happen this month for my book. I will also give a tentative plan for the posts I will be creating this year. These past few months have been bittersweet to my family, and I will talk about that a bit. Having said all that, let’s get to the January Newsletter for 2021!
Plan for 2021
This year, I will be busier than last year. I have decided to reduce the number of posts I write for a month. I have reduced the amount to only two or three posts a month at most. This means I will have a lot more time to work on my books! This is good because I hope to get the second book in my Fire & Ice series published this year. So excited!!
As for my plan, I will list it all below.

What Has Been Happening
As I said before, these last few months have been bittersweet. The school has been great, and I’ve learned some great things about the Bible. One of the highlights of the semester was the Christmas Banquet. It is a tradition for the guys to asked the girls to the banquet, and a very wonderful gentleman asked me. The evening was great, and I have so many lovely memories from being surrounded by friends.
Unfortunately, things started to go south once I returned home for Christmas break. My grandmother’s health has been failing, and she needs a lot of help with daily activities. My dad hurt his back and took a few days off work to try to get better. He is doing better now, but he isn’t as young as he once was.
The worst news hit just a couple of days before Christmas. My uncle had passed away from a massive heart attack on a haul through Calgary. It devastated us because he was only forty-nine years old. After hearing the news, Christmas just wasn’t the same. It was a day of quiet grieving. We still had the turkey and everything, but there was no joyous laughter or singing. God is still good in all of that, and His plan is still the best, even if I don’t know what it is, and yet I will praise Him.
Once Christmas was over, I worked on school work because there is always some school work to be done when you’re in college. I chatted with some friends over Facebook and worked on setting things up for the website for 2021. I also have some exciting news, but I believe it is too early to share this news in my January newsletter for 2021. Perhaps in the February edition, it will be time. I am continuing to work on the manuscript for book 2 of Fire & Ice’s Chronicles and hope to publish it this year, but no promises. I feel there will be some big changes coming up this year for me, but I still don’t know what they are.
Hope all of you have had a safe Christmas and a good start to January 2021!
Thank you for reading the January Newsletter for 2021! My next post will be in two weeks for history nerds like me. Until then, stay sane and safe!
