My Writing Goals for 2014

Hello, my pretties!
I'm writing this for a blog hop I'm on. It runs from, well, today until March 24, over on this blog.

Today is my writing goals for this year.

If truth be told, it's actually thin. I'm hoping to publish only two books this year, since last year I had to go and re-publish my first Sabrina Strong books, and go Indie. Not that I didn't welcome that, but it really pushed me to get this done. I had to go through each book, corrections on the last book were--ehem--numerous...but we won't go there today.

Two books I'm currently working on are Dhampire Legacy,which if you've been coming to my blog(s) regularly, you'll have seen what I've been doing. It's not exactly an urban fantasy, as my Sabrina Strong series is. I like to call it a cross-over mystery-suspense paranormal with horror thrown in for good measure. Why can't we just call it a vampire novel and get over it. It isn't your typical vampire novel of today. It reminiscent of vampire novels of the 1980's where the vampire was evil and the good guys are trying to stamp them out and having a hell of a time doing it. I'm working in the scenes I thought I didn't need of showing the vampires themselves, but as I got into the climax (where I am in my writing of this), I'm seeing the need for these scenes.

And the other project, which I hope to get done sometime early spring, is the fourth book in the Sabrina Strong Series, Vampire Caprice.

I've currently been working on Dhampire Legacy, while allowing my beta readers to swarm over the fourth Sabrina book. Once that's done, I'll have to go through that mss, do corrections, go through it again to make sure everything's right, and then publish it.

My other writing projects are to keep up with my other blogs. I've started a poetry blog, as well, but I post there only on a monthly basis, or until people take interest.

November is for...

Ah. Yes. Some writers do the NaNoWriMo thing. I don't need that nudge, thank you. I've never needed it. And it wasn't even in ...
