So, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my hopes, dreams, and goals for 2018.


As we talked about at the end of 2017, I plan to do a lot more “talking” on the blog in 2018 in hopes that you’ll jump in and share your stories with me along the way. Now, I know what you’re thinking… Don’t we already do that on Facebook? And the answer is yes, of course we do, but I’ve come to realize that 1) Facebook won’t be around forever, 2) many of you aren’t on Facebook, and 3) Facebook isn’t always the most positive place to hang out.

Which brings me to my second thought of the day.


I don’t know if you noticed, but 2017 was filled with a lot of negative energy. Online and off. I don’t know about you, but that negativity wore me out. So, I’m saying “NO!” to negativity in 2018.


I have some pretty large writing and publishing goals for 2018.

I’ve got a jam-packed publishing schedule, including Desired in Darkness releasing on February 5, a 6th Mindspeak book, and a brand new series that I’ve already started writing (and that you guys are going to love, love, LOVE!).


I also have some even larger business goals for 2018 that I’m currently working on while I finish up the edits on Desired in Darkness.

There are times in our professional lives that we need to mix things up and reach higher. And in 2018, I’m planning to do just that. I’m in the planning stages of starting a brand spanking new business that will allow me to serve other authors in huge ways. It’s always been my goal to give back to the writers and authors who have helped me along the way and I’m looking forward to meeting even more authors that I might be able to help.

I know that was vague, but I promise more information is coming soon.

Those are my not-so-random thoughts for today. I would love to hear what your goals are for 2018. Do you make resolutions? I’m not so much as a resolution-maker as I am a goal-setter. And I tend to set goals any time I finish a large project. And since I’m in the process of wrapping up Desired in Darkness AND a new year was starting, it seems like the perfect time to set new goals and make plans.
