My 2015 outlook is something that has been in the forefront of my mind for the last few weeks. One of the things I have been going back and forth on is the push to find an agent and publish traditionally or stay with the indie route and learn to self-promote myself better. Promotion has been something I have struggled with in the past. I am not good at selling myself.
I have decided that since there is one last group looking at my Dragon book that I would give them until the end of Jan ’15 to say yes or no on it and if their answer is no then I will push forward on learning to be a better promoter of my work and attempting to release 3 books during the calendar year of 2015. The first will be the final Green Eye which I am currently formatting. The next two will be the first two book in my Dragon series. There is also another project on the horizon. That is one that I am working on with my daughter. I am working on the outline and she will be the one doing the writing. I think it will be fun and a great experience with her.
Staying focused on writing is something else that needs to move into the forefront of my mind. While 2014 has been trying in ways that I dare not go into details here. I need to keep my dream alive. My dream is not to be a household name, but to make a manageable living from my writing. I think with the right promotion, I could succeed in that.
So 2015, I am ready for you. I hope you are better to me than 2014 was.
