Writer Wednesday: Writer Rebel's Creed and Goals for 2015

I'm taking part in the Writer Rebel's Creed again this year, hosted/originated by Sheri Larsen. As part of the group, this is what I'm pledging to this year:
If you'd like to join, check out Sheri's blog and sign up.

In addition to the Rebel's Creed, here are my goals for 2015:
  1. Secret goal I can't reveal yet. Sorry! I know what it is though, and I'll share as soon as I can.
  2. Promote The Darkness Within (Sequel to The Monster Within). The book releases in June and I'm ready to show everyone why they should love Sam and Ethan.
  3. Write another Campus Crush book. Ashelyn Drake fans have asked for another story featuring Mike (from Nothing to Tell) so he can get his HEA. I want to give him just that. :)
  4. Write the final book in the Curse of the Granville Fortune Series. This goal is self-explanatory. ;)
  5. Build my street team (Kelly's Coven) by spoiling my fans with lots of great exclusive stuff. I'm talking about bonus content, exclusive giveaways, changes to be characters in my books, review copies, SWAG, one-on-one discussions with me, and lots more.
Okay, so goals are great, but wish lists are a lot of fun, too. I'm putting these separately because they aren't things I have total control over. Here is my wish list of things I'd LOVE to happen in 2015:
  1. Get one or two more book deals. That would be really nice. :)
  2. Make the USA and/or NYT best seller list. My ultimate dream!
  3. Going to BEA or another big convention. Spencer Hill Press won't be attending BEA this year, so I need a miracle to happen in order to go.
  4. A drama-free year. It's no secret 2014 was rough for me. I want no drama in 2015. Can someone please make that happen for me?
What are your goals and/or wishes for 2015?

  2. Oh and I just had to say that I would love to read another Campus Crush story because, yeah, Mike didn't get his HEA. And I liked him a lot.

  3. What a great list of goals! With your energy I don't doubt you'll achieve each one:-)
    And I love your wish list! After all, goals begin as dreams which once were wistful wishes. The best to you!

    Congrats on your writing goals.

  5. Revisions can be beautiful.... though they might not seem that way when you're in the midst of them!

  6. Great list of goals. I'm liking your Rebel Creed. I won't be at BEA this year either. It's just too expensive. I'll miss it. I love collecting books and meeting my favorite authors.

  7. I have little doubt you will reach your goals, thought that secret goal, well, I am in no position to vouch for. But as far as wishes- may at least one come to fruition, because any one of them would be splendid.

  10. The BEA would be awesome. 2014 was a bit rough for me as well. I'm so glad it's over. Loved your goals and I'm curious about the secret one. How do I join your street team?

    1. Oh yay! If you click on Kelly's Coven above or go to this link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/310954715719850/ you can join my street team. I'd love to have you!

  11. I think 2014 was the anti-book year. Every writer I know had a horrible 2014. Most not as rough as you and I, but still.
    I hope you make the NYT list too, so you can blurb my book ;).

  12. Those are some great goals and wishes, Kelly. I hope they all happen for you!

  13. you're super productive! and I'm with you on the wishlist--I want a book deal this year, and have always wanted to attend BEA. It's not far from me when it's in NYC (i'm on Long Island) but I never have the money!
