Happy New Year!
I don't know about you guys, but I'm PUMPED for 2015. Lots of movin' and shakin'. Writing and editing and submitting and PUBLISHING! Whoot!
It's always kind of fun to go back and look at what I thought was going to happen last year. Turns out I was fairly close.
Here's the list of goals I had for 2014.
(I've highlighted the things that did happen.)
Start submitting THE INFORMANT
Start the search for representation for THE PRINCESS AND THE THIEF
Release of ROAD TO SOMEWHERE (Bloomsbury Spark)
Release of FRACTION OF HOPE (#2 in The Fraction Series)
Write and release the third book in The Fraction Series
Release of ONE WISH AWAY (Bloomsbury Spark)
I pretty much achieved the goals that weren't attached to The Fraction Series. (At the end of 2013 I realized I had to get the rights back for the series which took most of 2014).
2014 was SUCH a learning year for me in terms of everything writerly. I'm really excited to put all those things to use in 2015 and beyond.
Speaking about 2015... here are my goals for this year!
Publish all four books in The Fraction Series. (First one comes out January 6th!)
Publish NO TIME FOR LOVE, my collab with the super duper Cassie Mae!
Publish ALL SHE NEEDS IS LOVE, YA Contemp
Continue submission with PRINCESS AND THE THIEF, collab with Jessica Salyer
Finish RAINBOWS & RAINDROPS with my collab author bud, Jenny S. Morris
Write BEST FRIEND WARS with another collab author bud, Jessica Salyer
Write the first book in a YA Dystopian series, working title, WINDOWS TO THE SOUL
So that's what 2015 looks like right now. Like I said, I'm really excited. By the end of 2015 I should have eight published books and hopefully a few more with their feelers out there.
So how about you guys!? Got a lot of exciting stuff happening in 2015?
