Well you’re reading this blog post on my shiny new website so I’ve already achieved one goal that I’m pretty happy about. And I’m a few hours late but I’m participating in this Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge over at Long and Short Reviews as well so 2020 isn’t off to a bad start so far.
I also have new covers for lots of my books that I spent much of 2019 getting ready to go so I feel like I’m in a good place to leap into the year ahead.
I have very specific publishing goals in 2020 which include participating in three box sets, two books in the No Brides Club series for Sweet Promise Press (March and September) and finally releasing the final two books in the Courtside Romance Series.
Beyond that I also have a new trilogy I’m excited to kick off this year.
Aside from publishing new titles I have some box sets coming of my older series which I’m really looking forward to. As an author my main goal in 2020 is to monetize my back-list. I’m just shy of 30 books published and it’s time I started making some serious money from them.
If you’re a regular follower of me or this blog you’ll know I often talk about how so much of being an author, especially and indie author is embracing new technology. There are so many platforms and pieces of technology you can use to help you but each one however amazing has it’s own learning curve.
The past eighteen months I’ve been so exhausted from a combination of life and my day job situation that I’ve shied away from new platforms to my own detriment. (I continued to write and publish because for me that’s the joy of being a writer – I’m a story teller at heart ).
So one of my major goals in 2020 is to embrace the technology I need to in order to succeed as an author.
That’s probably enough for one year. My experience with goal[i] setting is that I’m better to concentrate on a few bigger goals rather than lots and lots of little ones.
Embracing technology… oh, doesn’t it sound cool? But it can be so hard to do sometimes. The learning curve! Good luck with it, Monique.
I used to be so good at it but my brain is FULL. Still, telling myself that is not helpful at all.
Good on you for embracing tech. The more you can do yourself, the quicker you can adapt. Looks like you’ve got a lot on your plate this year. Good luck with everything!
That’s a LOT of writing goals! Exciting for you and I hope you meet them all. I love seeing this: I continued to write and publish because for me that’s the joy of being a writer as it figures in a bit with my own writing goal this year.
Best of luck, and welcome to the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge! It’s a lot of fun…see you next week!
Thank you. If writing doesn’t spark joy then why do it right? So happy to be part of the challenge!
We are so glad you joined us on the Wednesday Blogging Challenge! I admire all the professional goals people are sharing. I’m not a writer, so my main professional goal is making it to the computer on time to check tours 😉 My goals are on the personal side.. you can see them here: http://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2020/01/wednesday-blogging-challenge-my-goals.html
I will definitely check out your post!
