This year in 2018 my goals will be high as in the past. I find that if I give myself a challenge I will try to rise up to it! I feel most people, if given a lofty goal, will do their best to reach it!
In 2017 I gave myself a Goodreads Challenge to read and review 110 books. It was a difficult one to reach but I did my best and completed 105 books and reviewed them on Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
In 2017 I gave myself a goal to write and publish 5 books. I completed 3 books plus a new edition of my first novel which almost counts for another book since it was a time-consuming task.
In 2018 my goals are:
Read and Review 90 books
Write and Publish 5 books
Help my fellow authors by interviews and guest posts on my blog
Give away more books from my blog contests
The books I plan to write and publish this year will be:
Sequel to Hunting Mariah
New Children’s book about a hermit crab
Books 1 & 2 of MG/PT/YA Mystery series for girls
Book 6 of Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series
Books I have on the back burner to edit and publish:
Book 1 of YA Fantasy (Series will probably be published in 2019 & beyond)
Children’s book about a dog
Being an indie author I wear many hats: writer, author, publisher, promoter, marketer, blogger, editor and supporter of other authors.
Sometimes these positions become all encompassing, taxing, and overwhelming for one person to complete successfully. I have had to lean on many of my wonderful friends online to bolster me up by their kindnesses in spreading the word about my books through re-blogs and sharing on social media. For all that they do, I am truly grateful.
Here are many of them listed below. I promise to continue to support all of you in 2018!
Whatever I do in 2018 I will enjoy writing and publishing as many books as I possibly can.
I will continue to write children’s stories in rhyme with life lessons that encourage children to be kind to others, respect elders and each other, listen to your parents, accept differences in others, not to be lazy, and not to accept bullying.
I will continue to encourage parents to read to their children daily.
I will continue to welcome hearing from readers and supporters about my books.
I will continue to LOVE receiving reviews! LOL!
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support. Stay strong, stay positive and stay well, my friends!

Please be kind to an author by reading and reviewing his/her books! We will love you for it!
Blessings & hugs throughout 2018!
