I’ve been working on my “first” book for a while now. Technically, I wrote several unsalvageable drafts of my first novel years ago. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I have a book contract with Influence Publishing for a memoir. I’d hoped to finish it before now, but got derailed by the onset of fibromyalgia. Now, I’m back on track and determined to have the manuscript finished and published in 2014. I haven’t figured out exactly when, but I’m determined to get it done.
I also have three other books that I’m working on, though none of these have quite the priority level of the memoir. One is a novel that is still in the planning stages. One will be a self-published book about marketing for authors. And one is a co-written book about special education testing. While it would be nice to finish all four books this year, the memoir is the priority. The memoir is also the closest one to completion.
What are your plans for 2014? Do you include marketing efforts in your plans?
