1/3/2013 It's going to be a great year!

I have a lot going on this year.

First of all, tonight I will be speaking at the San Gabriel Writers League on motivating oneself to get published this year. I have a lot of stories to share…just hope they prove interesting…lol

I’m also working feverishly to finish the revisions of Skellyman so I can send it out into the world to find a home. At the encouragement of Jim Reader, I am dedicating one day a week to “Day-of-No-Excuses”. On that day, there is no reason not to do what I have set that day aside to do. My day is Sunday, and I have sworn to submit something somewhere on that day, no excuses. I would like Skellyman to go out this Sunday, but it will probably be next week, since the revisions are being slow but thorough.

I started this Day-of-No-Excuses last Sunday by turning in The Conn-Mann Chronicles I: The Marvelous Mechanical Man to Zumaya. It’s a Steampunk romance that I think is one of the most cohesive works I’ve ever written. And I really look forward to all the things we can do relating to it. 🙂 Look for webpages relating to it to go up on the site soon.

I’ve also resolved to participate in a reading challenge this year:

 

My goal is level Earth — read 5 Science Fiction romances this year.

That doesn’t sound like much, but that’s on top of all the mysteries and other things I’ll read this year…lol.

This is not a genre I read a lot of, so I am hoping to broaden my horizons. Feel free to leave suggestions. 🙂

I will not be neglecting this website as much as I did last year, promise. I have several other irons in the fire that I can’t talk about yet.

2013 will be an AWESOME year!
