2017 Goals


Itā€™s (past) time to set my goals for 2017 down on this page. I need to do this every year to keep myself focused… at least a little bit.

This year is going to be one of doing a lot of things behind the scenes. That stuff isn’t particularly sexy, but it does need to be done. For example:

  • Create an Author Guide for Pen and Kink
  • Formalize the Style Guide for Pen and Kink

There are some things that are more visible, however. These make for much more entertaining goals šŸ™‚

On a demon-y level I want to:

  • Publish “Circles Within Circles”
  • Edit and publish “The Longest Night”

Under Glass for “She’s on the Bottom” I want to:

  • Edit and publish “The Coolest Wife Ever”
  • Publish a collectionĀ of all the “She’s on the Bottom” stories

Related to “Paranormal Circus” Under Glass I want to:

  • Finish writing and editing the untitled novelette/novella? about Ben and Maggie
  • Write at least one more story in this series.
    • Preferably two šŸ˜‰
  • Write and share a holiday-themed story set in this series

I’ve also got some editing and publishing-related goals. First, for editing:

  • Release and promote kINKED — beating the sales I had for Rough Edges
  • Have a successful submission period for the anthology I’ll be co-editing with Laura Harvey (details to come)
  • Read submissions to the World Weaver Press open submission period with an eye toward picking up one paranormal romance to edit in 2017 for publication in 2018
  • Edit the Enchanted series (all three books)

And lastly, as a micro-publisher at Pen and Kink

  • Publish and promoteĀ kINKED
  • Publish and promoteĀ Legendary edited by Laura Harvey
  • Publish and promoteĀ Ravenous edited by Ariel Jade
  • Line up an editor for the third book in the series
  • Continue to promote our existing titles. In part through a big sale in February.
  • Prepare the Enchanted series for release in early 2018
  • PublishĀ the Demon-y and Under Glass stories mentioned above
    • This is kind of a repeat from my goal above… but kind of not
