The year 2010 will soon be gone, just 5 more days, and 2011 will arrive. Father Time is always supplanted by the baby New Year. No matter what joys and sorrows; successes and failures may have filled the old year, the new year gives us a clean slat, a chance to renew our lives.
I have personal goals and business goals for the upcoming year. I don't make resolutions because I don't like failing. Goals are end results that may or may not be reached, but moving toward fulfilling them means successes of small steps.
Personal writing goals include finishing my Western novel, working on the sequel to Midnight Hours, and submitting my romance novel for publication. I also have a project with my daughter-in-law: a novel with Facebook's Mafia Wars as part of the concept. I hope some of my writing entered in the OWFI writing competition will place.
4RV Publishing has several books coming out the first of the year, and we have to make final preparations. The ARCs for Conscience: Breaching Social Amnesia by vehoae are already sent out for reviews, and once final edits and additions are finished, it will be released. ARCs for Time Pullers by Horton Deakins should be out right after the first of the year, and the sci-fi novel released in March. Harry Gilliand's Aldric and Anneliese, historical adventure/romance, will also be out by March.
In the next few days I'll share 4RV children's books coming out after the new year and a few for tweens and teens.
Until New Year's Eve, I'll be frantically finishing year end reports for the business. Why or why didn't I ask Santa for an accountant?
