I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last status report; but, here I go, doing it again by not posting the way I would like to; on a more regular basis. It’s the holiday season and you know how hectic that can be. But it’s New Year’s Eve and for the coming year I’m making a New Year’s Resolution to keep to some sort of a regular schedule in the kind of postings I do each week.
One of the things I would like to do interviewing authors, especially those who had to write in my genre of romance, hopefully once a week regarding their writing endeavors on both of my blog sites [BlogSpot.com and WordPress.com] provided I can find authors who are interested in being interviewed by me. So if you would care to be interviewed please let me know as it’s going to be on a first come/first served basis.
I looking at posting more marketing ideas some of which might only be useful to certain individuals, along with one/two new weekly items.
This year I’ve completed the 2016 Reading Challenge on GoodReads.com again. I’d set a goal of reading/reviewing 200 books and now at the year of this year I’ve read/reviewed 231 books. As a reminder I don’t accept requests for book reviews. I only read/review books I’ve won through giveaways for books I’m interested in reading, want to read on my own, and if I should receive free download of a book for having subscribed to a newsletter, etc., I read/reviewed them as well provided I’m interested in reading them. Being a Book Reviewer as you probably can tell has become quite a serious endeavor for my 2nd second career since retiring back in the middle of February 2010, and is now doing better than my desire to become a bestselling romance author. Since making my decision to be become a Book Reviewer back in August 2014 I’ve reviewed 461 books on Amazon, GoodReads and LibraryThing. My goal for 2017 will once again be 200 books, and as soon as GoodReads posts their challenge I accept it.
So far I didn’t win one of the two writing contests I’ve entered and I’m still waiting to hear from the second one.
In regards to my writing endeavors I’ve got three WIPs I’m set on completing before July 2017: an adult Contemporary romance novella entitled “His Darkest Secret,” a MG/YA Urban Fantasy novella entitled “The Secret of the Well,” and an GLBT Erotic Shape-Shifting novella entitled “The Transformation.”
I also in the midst of deciding whether I should go with a reediting of my debut romance novel, a MG/YA Paranormal entitled “I Kissed a Ghost” which if I do will result in a good period of time for the book being not available in either the paperback or KINDLE version.
I would love to read your comments so I know what you think or how you feel about my posts and activities; so don’t be shy or bashful.
Lastly, I want to wish all of my followers on this blog and your families a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
