Happy New Year!!!

Here's hoping the Mayans were wrong...

Happy New Year everybody!!!

It’s a little worrying just how many end-of-the-world images crop up when you do a Google image search for 2012…

But Armageddon aside, I think 2012 is shaping up to be a great year! Even the sound of it rolls off the tongue – twenty-twelve. That is a good-sounding year. It’s the kind of year that is made for looking back on in the future and saying: “Yeah, 2012 ROCKED!!”

I’m going to be blogging a lot more this year, mainly so I can keep track of my new year’s resolutions (I have about twenty, and counting). Some of the things I am most excited about this year include writing a new book in January, Fugitives coming out in the US in February, my US tour in March, The Fury being published in April, finally seeing Stagnant the movie getting made in May, getting a six-pack in June, holiday in July, the Edinburgh Festival in August, celebrating my gold medal at the Olympics in August as well, Execution coming out in the US in September, writing another new book in October, another US trip in November and Christmas in December!!

Okay, not all of those things will actually happen (I have yet to think of a way of getting a gold medal), but hopefully most of them!

Anyway, I just wanted to wish everybody an absolutely wonderful year. I hope 2012 is totally amazing for you all!
