Goals, Old and New

The 2017 Goals:

  • Send out at least 1 query every week
    I did pretty well on this, I think. I did take a month off, but sent out way more queries in other months.
  • Release The Spider’s Web on Amazon (once rights have been returned)
  • Reduce the yarn stash by 50%
  • Save for the moving
    On hold indeffinately
  • Read all the books on the night stand
  • Read at least 20% diverse books
    I hit 25%, pretty much on the nose, which surprised me. I’m hoping to up that number in 2018, however.

I managed to accomplish about half of what I set out to do. I also accomplished a lot of other things I hadn’t planned on. I re-released The Spider’s Web and put out The Ferrymen. I wrote Moreau House (out February 27), was the runner up in Shore Indie, wrote two more books, was made a presenter (basically staff) for Steampunk Symposium, did a bunch of interviews, and a bunch of other stuff. Unfortunately, the financial stuff has been completely out of my control since July.

So what about 2018?

  1. Send out 2 queries per week.
  2. Publish 3 books.
  3. Read the books currently on the night stand.
  4. Read at least 1 indie book per month
  5. Read at least 30% diverse books.

I’m not going to tell you which books I’m publishing in 2018 (yet), but I will say that the first two will be Moreau House and All for One. As for the third…well, you’ll just have to wait and see. 🙂
