It was a very good year. I wrote four complete science fiction romance novels (all around 80K) in 2014 and received contracts for all of them. One of them turned into my bestselling book ever. I found a publisher to reissue my first epic fantasy series and I polished up the second book in my other fantasy series and that publisher contracted it for a 2015 release.
I was part of the IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond book venture. It was an amazing experience and a super reference book was borne from it. It's free if you haven't downloaded your copy yet.
I was asked to be secretary of the state-wide writers' organization I belong to. Don't know all the duties involved yet, but I'm excited to be part of it.
The A to Z Blogging Challenge is going to be great again this year. And for the first time, I'll be one of the administrators of the biggest deal in the blogging world. It's giving the word challenge an entirely larger meaning for me. Hope I survive.
My plans for this year is to write at least four more books and if I can, a fifth one also. I'm also committed to keeping my blog active but have accepted how much time it takes. One of the things I will be doing is having more guests here on my blog and paying some visits to others. Most of my guests will appear on Fridays. I'm excited about the great information these experienced authors and industry professionals will be sharing with my readers.

But unlike that brilliant guy, most of us do think about the future in so many personal and professional ways. In the next two months I'll be talking about some new releases and hopefully getting a lot of writing done.
Was 2014 a good year for you? Are you thinking about the future or are you in Albert's camp? What is your greatest challenge coming up in the next year?
