It’s traditional at the end of the year to revisit what we’ve accomplished and to set new goals for next year. So I dug up my goal list for 2015. Let’s see what actually got done.
Finish and Submit Facials Can Be Fatal, #13 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries. (DONE. This title is scheduled for release on February 22, 2017.)
Revise backlist mystery titles, starting with Hair Raiser, Murder by Manicure, and Body Wave. (DONE. These titles are available in ebook and print formats.)
Commence audio book process starting with Permed to Death. (Not Done. Move to 2016.)
Hire editor for two standalone mysteries and consider bundling them as a box set. (Not Done. Move to 2016)
Begin plotting #14 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries. (DONE. I’m more than halfway through writing Hair Brained.)
Consider timeline for writing books #4-6 in the Drift Lords Series. (Not Done. Postponed indefinitely.)
Hold launch party for each backlist title as the revised Author’s Edition is published. (DONE.)
Plan promo campaign for Peril by Ponytail, #12 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries, due out Sept. 16. Plan contests, buy ads, order swag, set up blog tour, write newsletter, plan launch party. (DONE.)

How about you? Did you get done all you’d set out to do?
