Writer Wednesday: A Year of New Adventures


2017 is quickly becoming the year of new things for me. I've made some decisions to do things differently. I'm participating in boxed sets, one for Kelly in March and one for Ashelyn in September. I've rebranded two Ashelyn covers to more properly reflect the heat level in the romances. I'm trying new promotional opportunities. The list goes on. 

The reason why I'm sharing this is because this is new to me and quite honestly, it's a little scary. But my thought process is this: I have to try new things to find out what works. So that's what this year is going to be about for me. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things. Why not, right?

Is 2017 bringing you out of your comfort zone?

In case you missed my new Ashelyn covers, here they are. And yes, they are up and available for purchase.

  1. I hadn't seen the Campus Crush cover. I love the title of that one!!! It sounds like you're on the right track for 2017! I feel like I'm at a crossroads right now with my career, both freelance and novels. We'll see which way I go!

  2. Wow, lots of new, exciting ground for you. All the best with it, Kelly.

    2017 brought me a new opportunity, to diversify as a freelance copywriter. I'm doing my best for my first client at the moment, grateful for the opportunity they gave me but also aware that the experience I gain here will hopefully set me up for taking my skillset to new clients too.

  3. Good luck, Kelly. It's scary, but exciting, right? This year is shaping up to be totally different for me, too. I've got a new corporate client. I'm pitching ideas to various blogs and magazines. I'm focusing more on non-fiction rather than fiction. We shall see how it goes.

  5. Those are very sexy covers! They look professional too. I think it's important for us to get out of our comfort zones, but it is tough!

  7. Getting out of my comfort zone is tough, but I hope to do some new things this year. Not quite sure what yet. Working on ideas. Love the new covers.

  8. Don't you love splashing a new vibe on your book babies? It's a way to fall in love with them again. I love the new covers. I personally enjoy purchasing box sets as a reader. This is a great direction for you. 2017 is forcing me to do the same to one of my series which I hope to update the others in 2018. It's a huge undertaking for me since now I have to reformat the interior.

  9. Hey Kelly, I have heard good things about doing boxed sets, I think that sounds great. I hope it goes very well for you. Trial and error or success is the way to go, it's the only way we learn. Wishing you lots of luck. =-)
