YA writers and bloggers unite each week to share their thoughts, hopes and dreams about what it’s like to go indie in today’s
As 2011 has finally come to an end its naturally the time to look at the year and decide if it was all worth it. So what did I do in 2011 that pushed my own boundries?
I gave up my full-time job. That’s a big Ouch! right there… but it was worth it.
I won an award for my very first fully completed YA novel … awesome.
I finished my second YA novel… a NANO project done and dusted.
I wrote my third YA novel in 24 days … mind-blowing.
Got my Valkyrie novels accepted by Evolved Publishing … OMG!
Began YA novel that I’d want to publish in 2012 as well.
I have a few writing plans for the year 2012!
Cover art for 3 books .. sooo exciting!
Writing Dead Embers and Dead Chaos … to deadline – eek!
Writing the 3 books in my Blood and Time Demon Hunter series … until my fingers bleed? yesss!
Working on a new website … ack!
So thats 5 books to complete… but who knows, I may up the target depending on how things go… or not!
For now I am just listening to the sounds of 2012 as it lands and grinds its way into daily life. As I see my youngest kid off to high school, see three special little babies come into the world, see my first series published and become an honest to goodness real life author, autograph the first paperback copy of my novel… sigh. It’s all a bit surreal but I will enjoy every minute, every second of it…
Please join the rest of the Carnies as they give salutations and felicitations to 2012:
