Every new year I like to take a look back and see what I accomplished and plan what the next year will look like. I never consider years to be “over” or that this is the “end” because to me writing has no end. It is fluid, continuous, and streams from a writer in almost ribbons of thought and feeling. If I were to stop that, I would stop being me. And I like me.
Last year with Evernight Publishing, I published, six novels and two short stories. I independently published two short holiday stories. I grew as a writer and to further that effort took several professional craft improvement classes. I joined several groups of writers and continue to do work with the local Romance Writers of America group, Romance Authors of the Heartland and took over as President this year. I also organize a group of like-minded authors who critique and help each other to move forward with our careers with support and accountability.
Professionally it was a very good year and I’m happy to report that 2017 looks better than ever.
On the docket for writing are:
REINS: Cherry County Cowboys #4 (Zeke and Matt)
BOOTS: Cherry County Cowboys #5 (the final in the series) (????–guess you’ll have to stay tuned to see who this one is about)
A quad of Romance on the Go Triple R books all under the title of Rules of Love–Trust (Chloe and Jake), Communication (Ember and Kirsch) Respect (Breigh and Luke), Honesty (Emie and Cade).
Rock This Love: Triple R 12 (Laken and Easton)-A Novel
I’ll be starting a new series, but not sure what I’ll be doing with that…anyone have any ideas?
And then two Holiday Hotties series–Halloween and Christmas/NYE–three books each.
Oh, and three anthology submissions, with the Evernight Publishing’s Owned by the Alpha being the first and my submission titled Mooncrest: Crystal Wolves Series.
Phew, I think that’s it. I’m almost tired thinking about it, but now that it’s out there, I’m streaming all the words. Wish me luck!
Hope you all have a wonderful 2017!
Hugs to all!
