Guess who's back?
I'll give you a hint. It's me! Did you enjoy your holidays? I know I certainly did. So many memories to be cherished and grateful for. :)
But that's behind us. (Womp, womp.) It's time to get back to work! I've seen tons of people listing their 2013 goals, but that can get overwhelming. I want to focus on one quarter at a time...
General examples from my obsessive, color-coded notebook:
- Write business plan - I haven't done one of these since college, but it's a necessary evil.
- Finish client's book cover
- Finish first draft of Strength's sequel
- Finish (amazing) book I've been reading to quote/endorse
- Give "new adult" writers a nudge - It's still a struggle to find great NA publishing opportunities—i.e. pitch contests—so we're going to do something about that. Get ready! ;)
- Send revised draft of Strength's sequel to CPs
- Process feedback as it comes
- Do more cardio/dance between writing sprints
- Send guest posts/interviews out to tour participants
- Send release info to party/blitz participants
- Release Strength! *confetti cannon*
- Blog tour(s)
- Avoid turning into a zombie...
Whew! I feel better. Those goals seem pretty manageable. I think I can cover those. :) Speaking of covers—segue, segue, segue—who wants to see A.L. Jackson's latest?
A.L. Jackson's Cover Reveal...
Side Note: A.L. is super talented, and if you haven't already, you'll definitely want to check out her other books: Pulled, Take This Regret, and When We Collide.
About LOST TO YOU...
People come into our lives. Some stay, and many go. Some build us up, while most tear us down. They become our friends, our enemies, our lovers, our tormentors.
Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same.
To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.
Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.
Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners.
Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.
Lost to You, the prequel to the bestselling romance, Take This Regret. A New Adult novella, recommended for readers 17+. It’s unnecessary to have read Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You.
About A.L. Jackson...
A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.
