Sorry I have been absent for so long. Life has been a whirlwind for me ever since the birth of my second child on the Winter Solstice. Now that I feel more recovered, I can get back to the swing of things, well as much as I can with limited sleep. With the New Year I have new goals, goals that as usual are huge.
The first goal was to revise In Flames. I was so pleased with the edits that were made with In Rapture, that I really wanted to go back and make similar changes with my first book. I’ve already grown so much as a writer and there is nowhere to go but up from here. Becoming a better writer is something we should all strive for, something I know I am accomplishing. It is with great pleasure that I can say that this revision goal has been met and the 2nd edition of In Flames is already up on Amazon!!
My second goal is to work on promoting my books. This is not so easy, especially when the day seems even shorter with less free adult time. I am making a running list of everything I am doing each week. This really helps me see what works best for me. I really want to get more reviews so from here I guess I will be doing some research on how to get my audience to drop a few lines for a review. I am not unrealistic. I don’t expect everyone to leave me a glowing review, and as many people say you aren’t famous until you’ve gotten your first attacking review. I’m still waiting for mine.
Other goals include finishing book 3 in the Destined Series, working on my Terrahtu titles (there will be at least 3 books in that series and they are all 1/2 way completed), and completing revisions on my Watch Tower book. I haven’t decided if I am going to turn that into a series or not at this point in time. That book could stand on its own, or it could have another couple of stories added onto it. The challenge with that book is switching the point of view. It was originally written in first person, and while it was a fun challenge, I just don’t think that point of view works well for me as a writer.
So, as you all can guess, this year is going to be so hectic. I don’t know if I will be able to meet all my goals, but it is always a good idea to set them. A big heads up to my friends here, I will be doing a giveaway starting this week for a free e-book copy of the newly revised In Flames I will set that up tomorrow.
