Adventures in 2013 – Anna Hackett

Winter Fusion2012 was a great year for me. I saw the release of my very first sci-fi romance, WINTER FUSION and it was also part of the Carina Press anthology, A GALACTIC HOLIDAY. I released my first self-published book, TIME THIEF in my Anomaly Trilogy (paranormal romance with a touch of X-Men) and its sequel, MIND RAIDER. On the personal front, I watched my baby turn into a toddler and we moved to Africa (a huge adventure!)

I am sure 2013 will only bring more fun, excitement and adventures.

Books to Write

Soul Stealer – the third and final book in my Anomaly Trilogy is out in Feb

WindKeepers – drafts are finished on the remaining three short stories in my paranormal seriesAGalacticHoliday

Fire in Ice – sci-fi romance novella and sequel to Winter Fusion

Phoenix Adventures – I have several novellas planned in this sci-fi romance adventure series

Unnamed sci-fi romance novella – I have a great idea for another sci-fi romance holiday novella…if I can find the time to write it!

Full length novel – I’m going to write the first book in a futuristic romantic suspense series.   Can’t share all the detail yet!

Games to Play

Since I had my son, I haven’t had time for gaming (sniff, sniff). I still have a few games for the Xbox that I’ve bought but not played yet. So this year, I hope I can get to them:

Gears of War 3 – OMG I love the Gears of Wars games. They are sci-fi with bug like aliens popping out of the  Nalini Singh #12center of the planet.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – love the graphics and the assassin story lines. Super fun.
