Good Afternoon Readers!
I like to think of a new year as a time to get better organized and to really figure out what it is you want to focus on in the upcoming year. Sure, it would be great if we could just dabble in everything 24/7 and lead a happy and productive life but coming from someone who is has been/is the queen of over dabbling and over committing for years, that’s just not the way you want to live your life. Sooner or later, it’ll all catch up to you.
And quite frankly it has. I’m tired of doing everything. So this semester (in college) I’m streamlining everything so that next semester I can focus on what really matters (a couple of orgs and my writing).
Because of this, last night & this morning I had the grandest time revamping some things because I want to get serious about my writing career. Yes, I do consider myself to be very serious about it but I wanted to fully show it as well as clean up some things and create new things.

What: A Weekly roundup of the previous weeks publishing headlines & other updates.
Why: I love reading publishing newsletters such as Publisher’s Weekly and Galley Cat & I’m always sharing updates via twitter so I figured why not compile them all into a weekly post.
When: Every Sunday, starting this Sunday (1/27)!!!
A collection of posts by myself or others that I have found helpful so far on my writer’s road.

I’m also going to be ordering business cards:
I’m thinking simple is best for now but I might get some with BLOOD OF ISIS’ tagline/hook on it for when I go to conferences.
Finally, I know right. Well I’m very pleased with it, it’s a nice mix of indie, big publishing houses, and small press published books. I’ll update this on my book review policy page but I think I’m all booked for reviews pretty much through March & part of April. Of course, exceptions have been known to be made, so shoot me an email regardless.
Thoughts? Updates of your own? How are you getting & staying organized during the new year?
