What does the new year mean to you?
I used to think it was a time to start over. To start fresh. Think of all the bad that happened in the year that just ended and try to change it. Or find a way to change it. Resolutions, some might say.
Not me. I’m a goal oriented type of gal. And I don’t just set goals on January 1st of every year. I set them all year long. It helps keep me on my toes. Inspires me and gives me a little kick in the butt when I’m feeling lazy.
And all those bad things that happened in the past. Well, there’s no going back in time. Though time travel would be pretty awesome. But if there is one thing I’ve learned, is that going back and changing one thing could change the future. And I’d rather control that on my own than take a chance—or wasting my time—on second guessing myself.
So in 2018, I’ve got a ton of goals and plans. Personal and professional. Professionally, I’ve got a lot of books in the works. A new series, which I entered the first book into the Kindle Scout Program here. You could check it out and read the first few chapters for free and vote if you think I should be awarded a publishing contract.
My 16th book will be published on Jan 16, 2018 called All for Love-Road to Romance. It’s available for pre-order now for just 99 cents! If you’re familiar with my Road and All series, then this is the prequel that ties William and Isabel Harper and Thomas and Michelle Mathews together.
I’m also hoping to finish up my Lake Placid Series. And I’ve got another project. A collection of sorts. The Love Collection. Because I write romance, and well, love and romance go hand in hand. This will be a series of 12 novellas, one released each month starting this summer. Ambitious, sure, but that’s my goal and when I set one, I try my darnedest to stick to it.
Personally, I’m a simple type of gal here too. I want to spend more quality time with my family and continue on a journey of good health and well-being. Not a tall order at all, huh?
So what about you? What goals have you set for 2018?
