One of the things about being an independent writer/publisher is finding the time to do it all, while juggling a full time job, spending time with the wife and keeping that chore list at home from getting out of control.
I write every chance I get, which during the working months it's hard to do. (The working months is the time of the year I work. I'm a personal chef at a sorority and I get 21 weeks off a year and that's when I do most of my writing) I never participate in nano, mostly because of timing issues, and to tell you the truth - I don't see a point in it.
So, in a nut shell, how did 2017 go?
Not to shabby.
I finally finished and published the fifth and last book in the Talon's Epic series in March. plus did a re-edit of the first five books and republished them with brand new covers.
I published the fourth Captain Hawklin book, "The Secrets of Monster Island" in May.
In July I attended Pulpfest for the first time, where I sat on the panel of New Pulp writers. This was the first major thing I did to advance myself as a brand. It gave me a taste for it and I want to do more.
So 2017 wasn't too bad. In the coming weeks I will be making a goal list of things I want to accomplish in 2018 and I'll share them here.
Until then... how did 2017 fare for you?
