My goals for 2012 are personal, business, and writing. No, although the three may be connected, they are not the same.
Personal goals include finding ways for Robert and me to spend more quality time together, working or playing together. I want to walk closer to God. I want to pray for my family more. I want to spend more time with my family.
Business goals include searching for ways to increase financial stability; give authors, illustrators, and staff more; add to our staff; and hopefully continue publishing quality books.
Writing goals include finishing at least three of the projects I've begun.
Hopes include placing in several categories in the OWFI writing competition. I entered ten categories, but winners are not announced until the Saturday night banquet of the conference.
Another hope is for 4RV Publishing and some of the categories that 4RV books and staff members are nominated for the Preditors and Editors Readers Poll take first place. Votes are needed for that to happen.
Science Fiction - Time Pullers by Horton Deakins
Children's - Walking Through Walls by Karen Cioffi illustrated by Aidana WillowRaven
Gunther the Underwater Elephant by Ginger Nielson
Other Novels - Sparrow Alone on the Housetop by Jean James and Mary James
Print Book and e Publishing ( yes, both) - 4RV Publishing
All I can do now is work toward each goal.
