I recently signed up for NetGalley, I sent out a few review requests and one of them approved. The book in question is Ever Darkening by Janeal Falor, so I’ll be posting a review up for that soon (so excited!). I could be wrong (and I usually am) but even though stuff in my life seems to happen all at once, I kinda get the feeling as though I know what I’m doing, I’m actually looking forward to this year.
Here’s my NetGalley profile in case anyone wanted to have a gander (let me know how I can improve it in the comments section):

WRITE A NOVEL IN A YEAR
Is 2015 the year that you write or finish that long-dreamed-of novel or memoir?
Whether it be a genre or literary novel, a children’s or young adult novel, or a memoir of your own life, this is the class for you. A novel can be daunting, so daunting that you just keep putting it off. Now you can embark on your writing and get help along the way.
Join this class and write your novel or memoir with support, encouragement, some handy class lectures on character, plot and dialogue, and some workshopping. We will also set up an online support group to keep you in touch and give you an ongoing support network.
We will run a free introductory session on Saturday 14th February, where we will talk about how the course will run, what you can expect, novel genres and word lengths, how to keep writing regularly and productively, motivation and discipline. And answer all of your questions!
Classes will run every 6-8 weeks throughout 2015 on Saturday mornings. Enrolments limited to 12 so book early!
Introductory session: Saturday 14 February, 10.30am-12 noon.
