July #IWSG

Welcome to July, everybody! Sorry I missed last month. I was out in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with a bunch of my family. It was so much fun. This was the view from our cabin (that's Gatlinburg down below):

I'm making up for my absence last month by co-hosting the IWSG this month! Looking forward to visiting bunches of blogs over the next few days.

Get ready for #IWSGPit! On July 19, you'll have the opportunity to pitch your completed and polished manuscript on Twitter. If your pitch receives a favorite/heart from a publisher/agent, that means they've requested a query! See all the details and rules at the IWSG website.

Now, on to the IWSG Optional Question:
What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time?

Goals? What are goals? Just kidding! I've heard of them; I'm just not great about setting them. But I guess my goal when I first started writing was to have fun with it, and that hasn't changed. After putting out a 3-book series in less than 8 months (between June 2016 & January 2017), I kind of felt like I needed to reclaim the "fun" part. Publishing and marketing aren't my favorite, so now I'm back to playing with words for the fun of it and not thinking about the publishing part just yet.

But sometimes marketing is fun. Hop onto the Fourth of July Hop for a chance to win tons of prizes from a whole bunch of romance authors (including me).

Happy 242nd birthday, US of A!!!
