Writing Goals for 2011

No, not New Year's resolutions, I totally suck at those!! These are my writing goals and what I want to achieve:

Finish my co-authored single title, Believe, find an agent and a contract =))

Write and publish the last novella of my gargoyle series, Winged & Dangerous.

Release another Bites story for 2011, and perhaps write a series.

Finish my Ellora's Cave ms tentativly titled "Brothers of the Otherworld".

Start work again on my single title ms "Dimensional" I began early 2010.

Rework Shadow Hunter, which has been sitting idly since those comp wins/finals, and decide where it belongs, if anywhere.

Choose one of my many 'just started' projects from over the years, and finish it!!


That should keep my busy and out of trouble!!! LOL

PS - have now added dates to help work out where I'm at. I'm still clutching hold of my positive thinking!!! (and not just with the time frame. Writers have to think positive with agent hunting and contracts, failure isn't an option!)

December: Quote of the Month

 
Christmas at my house is always at least six or seven times more pleasant than anywhere else. We start drinking early. And while everyone else is seeing only one Santa Claus, we’ll be seeing six or seven.

Carnal Moon: first review


Got a lovely review from Seriously Reviewed for CARNAL MOON my short 'quickies' story featuring werewolves. 
Here's what the wonderful reviewer had to say =)))

Review: Fantastic! World building in a short story that lacked nothing. From the pheromones to the shift, to the hunt, you’ll experience werewolf life as Holly does. You’ll be invested and swept into Mel’s incredibly erotic shifter world. Attention to the smallest detail made this story complete in a way most quickies aren’t. Without giving away any spoilers, I wasn’t surprised by the ending. In fact, it ended just as I hoped it would and the predictability didn’t detract from my enjoyment. To repeat myself because it was just so hot, sexy and satisfying. This story is fantastic.

Another Lovecat Read...Zana Bell



I've just finished TEMPTING THE NEGOTIATOR, a harlequin super romance by our very own kiwi lovecat, Zana Bell.
What a great story!
Sass Walker, a New York lawyer on a mission to climb the company ladder, meets New Zealand's Jake Finlayson, champion surfer and environmental hero intent on saving some birds...some endangered fairy terns, to be precise.
But their instant chemistry isn't about to stop her from making a push for a resort. A resort that will ensure her rise to the top of her career.

Children's books




Denise Rosetti's blog reminded me I hadn't yet bought my three year old any books for Christmas - and she just loves them (after horses).
I went online and found some that I remember well, ones I'll know she'll love too! The book depository is a fav for all us writers and readers - no postage!!
Here's what I went with: =))))
