December 7 Question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?

Five years from now, I’m going to be a full-time author, with a house big enough to fit all of our part-time kids–I’m hoping to see mine more often by then–and a room for our office and another for our crafting. We’re going to have the room in our budget to travel and experience the world we’re trying to write about.

The current construction project I’m on will be complete in two years. After that, the company I’m with may or may not move back to Denver. They’re a great company, so I hope they’re able to stay, but reality is, they’ll probably have to move back to Denver. Probably. I don’t know for certain.

So, that’s my time-frame. In two years, if they leave, I have to be able to wave them off with a genuine good luck–because they ARE a great company–and work full-time on my writing, OR…I’m going to have to relocate to some place with more construction opportunities.

I’m planning for the first option.

To make that happen, I’ve got four series slated for 2017 release that will be written to market. I’m not selling out. I want to sell.

S.M. Blooding & K.S. King are writing a military sci-fi space opera

Hattie Hunt is writing paranormal romance

F.J. Wolfram is writing a UF thriller that will adopt several tropes in the Harry Dresden Files.

Frankie Styne is wirting cozy witch mysteries, which is what a lot of readers were hoping Whiskey Witches would be.

I’m looking at putting books in boxsets to get a wider audience and a possible USA Today status. I have one book currently slated for a boxset that will launch late next year.

I have the plan. I’m writing every day even while working 12+ hour days at work. No excuses. I’m out of time for those. I’ve learned a lot in my writing career so far. I’ve downloaded a LOT of books. Chris Fox is particularly helpful right now. I’m going to make it happen.

The awesome co-hosts for the October 5 posting of the IWSG are Beverly Stowe McClure, Megan Morgan, Viola Fury, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Angela Wooldridge, and Susan Gourley!
