2019 Goals Final Review

 

Welcome to January 2020! My, my how quickly the last year passed. I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. We loved spending time with our family and friends. Today is back to work for me, so I wanted to write out my final 2019 goals review.

GOAL 1: Submit Clever Tom to an agent

As I mentioned in November, I reconsidered this goal. With my real estate goals and caregiving duties, I simply can’t commit to an agent right now. In mid-December, I submitted this to one of my publishers. Fingers crossed.

GOAL 2: Participate in STORYSTORM

Knocked this out of the park. Ended up with more ideas than required and took less than 30 days to finish.

GOAL 3: Contribute to Guardian Angel Kids 

This goal will be added to my 2020 list.

GOAL 4: Write 10 chapters of Amelia’s Mission

Ended up writing three new chapters due to editing a few manuscripts this year. However, I spent the last two days reading all the chapters I have, editing them, and preparing to get more written in January.

GOAL 5: Maintain my blogs

Never an issue, because I love blogging. I see 2020 as a year to consolidate some of them, so I’ll consider that over the next couple of weeks.

I’m satisfied with my progress in 2019. I’m approaching the new year with high hopes and determination to make even greater strides.

Blogging at 4RV Blog about Effective Book Promotion

 

As many of you know, before I became a REALTOR, I worked in online book promotion. Thanks to this experience and the effort put into marketing my own work, our local library asked me to hold a workshop for self-published authors on ways to promote their books. This week’s article at the 4RV Reading, Writing, & Art News blog talks about how effective marketing is about building relationships.
