Weekly News & Goals 11/8/10

Whew! Are you all ready for a brand new week? Last week was crazy, but I managed to get all the blog posts up without too much trouble. Hopefully this week will go smoothly…but I am writing this particular post at 1:30am. With any luck, all the rest will be written much earlier. With all the holiday stuff my weekends have been too full to write my posts ahead of time, unfortunately.

Did I mention I’m doing a giveaway for Tempest over on Goodreads? Two winners will each get two print copies of Tempest, one to keep, and one to gift (early Christmas shopping, anyone?). If you’re interested, enter here . And don’t be shy – friend me over there too!

In any case, I’m in NaNo mode, which means basic fare for this week. I do have another author interview coming up, but I’m not sure when it will be ready. Stay tuned…

This Week on The Variety Pages

Tuesday: Chapter 19 of The Biker’s Wench

Wednesday: Healthy Space

Friday: Chapter 20 of The Biker’s Wench

Thursday at Beyond the Words

Marketing Plan – December

Saturday at Snake Bites

Weekly Rattler – for those of you who want links to all the serial reads for the previous week, any contests or sales news, and announcements for all aspects of my book business, this is the blog to watch. Naturally anything pertaining romance will be posted here too.

Goal Reports

Last week was kind of a whirlwind. Two days off the day job, Halloween clean-up and trying to keep up with my normal routines were nearly my undoing, but I managed to meet my obligations and get a little NaNo writing done on the side. This week should be a little easier to keep up with things as my routine will be mostly back to normal. Aside from Thursday, which is a holiday so I’ll be at home. Hopefully writing.

Goals for the Week


  • 2000 words per day on The Minister’s Maid (NaNo)

  • 2 new chapters for TBW

  • 2 new installments for pen name project


  • Link everything up to the BSB site

  • Update and conversion of new digital Tempest files


  • Workout twice

  • Start cleaning out office

  • Focus on writing.

That’s it for me – what’s on tap for you this week? Read any good books lately?

    I think I entered the contest. I hope I entered the contest. Let me know if I didn’t enter it correctly.

    I can’t tell, Kelly…unfortunately, I just see the list on the contest page (of over 300 people so far). But you should be able to check here. 🙂 Thanks for entering, and good luck!

    Good luck with this week’s goals and with NaNo. For me, it will be focus on writing, but also need to do holiday planning – as in vacation, actually Christmas too. It’s all coming together, so a lot to do.

    Your goals list is like your writing, it looks short, but you’ve got a lot packed into it!

    Last week I read Katie MacAlister’s, In the Company of Vampires (excellent, as always). I never did get to the Kerrelyn Sparks book, it’ll have to be my incentive for this week. 😀
