Inez Kelley's New Release

SWEET AS SIN by Inez Kelley

She was made for sin. Sin was something he knew intimately.

John Murphy is tormented by nightmares. A bestselling young-adult author, he writes the ultimate fantasy: stories where good always triumphs. He knows better. His past has shown him the worst in people—and in himself. When he moves next door to the sexy, vibrant Livvy—a woman completely unlike his usual one-night stands—he’s driven to explore every curve of her delicious body.

Pastry chef Livvy knows that giving in to the temptation that is John Murphy won’t lead to anything permanent, but she deserves a passionate summer fling. John discovers she’s as sweet as the confections she bakes while Livvy slowly unravels his secrets. But what will happen when she uncovers them all?

New Year, New Goals

Most people start thinking of their goals for the New Year a few weeks in advance, but I chose to go another route. I wanted to wait and make sure I really wanted to stick to my goals. I wrote them down and hung them where I would be sure to see them every day. I was pretty surprised I didn't change any this year.

I put my gaoals into 2 catagories.

Writing                                                                Personal
1.) Write at least 3 novellas and 3 novels                    1.) Add more color to my wardrobe.
2.) Attend a local RWA chapter meeting                    2.) Spend more time with my husband
3.) Go to RWA nationals, NECRWA con, and AAD  3.) Lose at least twenty pounds.
4.) Be more outgoing at conventions I attend              4.) Show off my lame dance moves at conventions
5.) Be on a panel at convention                                  5.) Help husband make decision about where to live
                                                                                      (this may take a year)
6.) Spend entire year focused on writing goals            6.) Once a month do something just for myself.

Added to my gaols I have two white boards I list all my projects on. I wiped them clean and redid them. On one I listed my projects in the order I hope to hae them finished in. On the other I listed all my projects grouped by series and publisher. I realized two things. First I'm going to be pretty busy, second I really need to focus to reach my goals.

So has anyone else out there chosen any goals for this year? Are they attainable?
