I hope you all had a blessed new year! As with every year, let’s talk about last year:
I read 250 books.
I did a few interviews, but not as many as I used to in previous years. I am going to attempt to do more of those this year. They can be a lot of fun!
Themes. I used to do a lot more themes before, but have since slacked off.
More book reviews. Yes.
Basically, last year can be summed up like a roller coaster, I had some highs with a lot of lows.
This year my goals are to:
Read 150 books. This number has dropped drastically over the years. I just don’t have the time anymore. But, I also found that I have been reading tons of secular novels, be they historical or Ya or mysteries. This means that I actually do not review a lot of Christian fiction because I don’t read as much of them as I used to.
Why? You ask.
Lately, I have found it to be kind of formulaic. I am always on the hunt for new ideas or old ideas presented in new ways and…I’m struggling to find Christian authors who present books in this way (though there are a few, and those I read!). Hence, this year, I will branch out more in the indie Christian field. That is my goal.
Writing more books. I am planning on writing more books this year. As to publishing them all at the same time…..yeah. It’s expensive to pay for an editor and my books are not selling at the point where things are breaking even, so I will still continue to publish one book a year unless a publisher picks me up or my books start selling. But, know that I am always, always writing and this month I will really get deep into the last book of my Tate series.
More blogging. This. I love this blog and I haven’t been acting like it lately. Things are about to change folks!
Anyway, may 2017 be a blessed year for all of us!
