Hey guys, hope Wednesday is treating you well. Yesterday was my Birthday and I had a nice time at home relaxing. My parents decided to treat my stomach and I went to bed pretty stuffed and happy. All without having to go out. The life of a freshly 32 homebody.
Anyway today I'll be promoting Tara's new book coming out tomorrow December 1st and doing the goal hop. First up is Cradle Rock and just look at the cover and marvel at the beauty folks. This is the second book following Gabe the goblin and there is no question that adventure is on the horizon. Also there's a giveaway and list of party hosts.

Do you Have Goals Hop?
I have been a bit wishy washy with this hop but that's about to change. I plan to change my goal to writing 30,000 words a month for my own work. For right now I'll just talk about where I am with my writing.
Sadly Nanowrimo was a wash. The terrible flu and exhaustion combo I had only recently went and while I was well enough to do most things, writing just had to go to the left. I just couldn't get my mind right and it was exhausting. So I ended up with less than 3,000 words for Nanowrimo 2016. Also I realized the story was more suitable as NA instead of YA.
On a happier front I got some photo samples recently from the photographer and I'm loving them. My 2018 NA horror is thankfully moving along more smoothly. I can't wait for the shoot to be done in January and then I can move unto the cover around March.
I have decided that since I want to be known foremost as a YA novelist that I'll be putting a full novel out before I publish my novella collection. I have decided to publish one novella collection a year. 2017 will have The Missing Girls, 2018 will have The Sacrifice series and 2019 will have a fairytales collection. These will be published at once with at least five short novels. For my first novel, I decided to go Fantasy YA and will be working on The Rabbit's Princess. A standalone novel in which a princess whose betrothed is stuck as a rabbit after rescuing her father from that awful fate, gets thrown into an unexpected adventure that takes her beyond the borders of her home.
2017 will be quite an eventful year. Not sure when I'll fit in looking for an agent for one of my other YA or MG manuscripts, but I'll survive. Freelancers are known to be hard workers. Thanks for coming by today guys and God Bless. Oh and did I add that I'm working on reviving my Wattpad?
P.S.: I'll be doing a blog post on Thursday (tomorrow) so there will be no Friday post this week.
