Happy New Year!

          Did I Attain Last Year's Goals?
          -Released a total of 6 books (3 Molly, 3 Kenzie), so check!
          -Made the break from Publisher Who Will Not Be Named, check!
          -Discovered I have mild sleep apnea and began diet modification, check!
          -Boxes are still in basement, but no more room in storage.
          -Did not attend any conferences.
          -DID spend an enjoyable week in Estes Park, check!
          -I HAVE reached the 'F' titles in karaoke, check!

          This Year's Goals:
          -Repair laptop
          -Attend ONE (1) conference, be it RT NOLA, Lori's, or the one in Nashville, TN.
          -Lose 10 lbs or more
          -Reach the 'HO' titles in karaoke
          -Publish at least two books this year, which means cleaning up NaNo 2013's wip and submitting it; finishing #8 or going onto #9.  Write one or two more (either pen name)

          January Reading Schedule:  Goal:  Read another 200 books:)  Daughter did NOT get her own Kindle, so I'll only be able to read when I'm not taking care of the granddaughter or just before bed.  
          Print Books:
          Having It All-Roz Denny Fox Excellent!  RR
          Coast Road-Barbara Delinsky Excellent Story!!!  DRR
          The Silent Wife- A.S.A. Harrison Interesting...
          Between the Lines-Jodi Picoult and daughter Loved it!  DRR
          Ordinary Lives, Extraodinary Mission-John R. Wood Food for thought:)
          Good Faith-Liz Crowe Good, but difficult to read, due to all the raw emotion.  Wanted to slap a few characters silly at times.

          Over You-Christine Kersey Good
          All Over You-Beverly Kendall CNF
          Held-Jessica Pine CNF
          His Leading Lady-Jean Joachim AWESOME!!!!  DRR
          Her Story antho-Dorothy Abrams, et al
          Trouble With A Cowboy-Sandy Sullivan
          Unforgettable You-Marci Boudreaux
          Sweeter Than Sugar-Sandra Sookoo

         Karaoke Songs:
          Flashdance (Irene Cara) A little flat in places, but okay.  I'll most likely only sing this again if requested, or if the mood strikes.
          Foolish Beat (Debbie Gibson)
          Foolish Games (Jewel) Ugh.  Only did well on the places I knew very well.  Overall, bleh.
          Suds In The Bucket (Sara Evans)
          Forever in Blue Jeans (Neil Diamond) Too low
          Fox On The Run (Sweet) Not bad, but not that good either!

          Watch my YouTube channel for videos:)

What a big goal of 200 books. I used to read that much but the day job gets in the way. :) Good luck with Karaoke. :)

I remember when I read, at least, 200 books in a year. Oh, how I miss those days.

You accomplished a lot last year, Molly, and I'm sure you'll do the same this year.

Your goals will keep you busy this year - good luck in accomplishing all you want in 2014. I'll be hoping I can accomplish mine right along with you. Judy
