Happy New Year! Last year was all about getting started down the path of self publishing. In the end it become a heavy year of learning. This biggest things I achieved was finishing my first full length book (first draft that is) and overall changing my entire mind frame about writing. This year I have some concrete goals to start the year with. I'm well on the way with three main projects: Touch - erotic romance, anticipated 55k standalone. 65% done. Releasing this month. I'm doing the cover, formatting, and editing all myself. Pen Name 2 Luck Duck - paranormal romance 85k. 20% done on second draft. Anticipating a first quarter release. first book in a trilogy. Bought the cover but formatting and editing will be me (getting editing help from my boyfriend as well). Pen Name 1 White Trash Witch - paranormal romance 85k(?). 30% done on second draft. Anticipating first or second quarter release. First book in series. Again, bought the cover and nothing else outsourced. Pen Name 1 The plan is to work on my paranormal romance pen name this year and see where it leads me. I imagine I'll have side projects through the year but I'll try to maintain focus on these two series I've got started. I hope to get another paranormal romance or two out this year. I think this will be a heavy learning year too! I do want and hope to make some money. It's a hard thing for me to quantify when I haven't even really dipped a toe (I made $8 from a short story back in the Spring, then unpublished it). However, I'd like to see some return on money and time spent. That doesn't mean I'll stop if I don't. Though my long term dream is to be able to earn enough money to justify it being my full time thing.
