  • Promised Elizabeth a three-book series
  • Published “Clean-Up on Aisle Me!” in the Butt Ninjas from Hell anthology

  • Attended Outlantacon with various other butt-thology authors
  • Agreed to not one, but TWO more butt-thology anthologies
  • Submitted Unfortunate Son (Sons Book 1)
  • Organized a writers’ retreat in the north Georgia mountains
  • Did a whoooooooooooooole bunch of editing for various Dragon Con projects
  • Submitted “The Half-Life of Pumpkin Pie” for the Butt Babes in Boyland anthology
  • Attended Dragon Con, working on the Daily Dragon, as usual

What’s on the horizon for 2015:

  • Publish Unfortunate Son
  • Attend the Dreamspinner Press Author Workshop
  • Complete and submit Nobody’s Son (Sons Book 3)
  • Publish “Faux Cowboy” in the Butt Riders on the Range anthology
  • Attend Outlantacon with other butt-thology authors (and probably plan another anthology)
  • Publish Wayward Son
  • Attend Animazement
  • Attend Romance Writers of America convention
  • Do a whoooooooooooooole bunch of editing for various Dragon Con projects
  • Attend Dragon Con, working on the Daily Dragon, as usual
  • Attend Georgia Romance Writers annual conference
  • Attend Atlanta Pride
  • Publish Nobody’s Son
  • Write two short stories/novellas
  • Write novel trilogy
  • Write at least one Christmas story (possibly a set of three)
  • Bottom line goal: complete at least two novels and two short stories/novellas (submitted/ready to submit for publication)

Any or all of the 2015 plans are subject to change, of course. For one thing, there’s a strong possibility that my sister will be getting married at some point, so that’ll throw a big monkey wrench into everything!
