Happy Lunar New Year!! 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon!



January 23rd, 2012 is the beginning of the lunar new year. This year, it signifies the year of the water dragon.

This is cool in so many ways. First of all, the year of the dragon is a very special year. The dragon is the only mythical animal in the Chinese zodiac and is considered a wise and benevolent creature. Because it is a water dragon, it means the year should be calmer than other dragon years.

But for me what I'm really excited about is that my book has a water dragon in it. I had no idea when I wrote it that I would be in the midst of publishing it the year of the water dragon. It feels extremely fortuitous. This year should see the release of my ARCs and the beginning of promotion for PROPECHY. And with the guidance of the Water Dragon, I can only hope that all will go well for my little book!

So here's to a wonderful Year of the Water Dragon for all of us!

I knew it was the Year of the Dragon but not of the water dragon. How cool and that yours has one.

We're celebrating the Chinese New Year. My daughter is adopted from China.
