August 2019 goals

written by Betsy Flak on 2019-07-29

It's the end of the month, which means it's goals time!

As usual, I'll update the progress on July's goals, then set new goals for August. Easy peasy. I mean, hopefully.

July 2019 goal update:

  1. Book Four of The Clan-Vampire Clash (title TBD): Complete the rough draft. Stretch goal: Start in on the developmental edits.
    • Result: Success! And I met my stretch goal too! Developmental editing has begun.
  2. Season three of Sam's story (Troupe-only side story): Determine what happens next in detail, outline, and start the rough draft. Stretch goal: Finish the rough draft.
    • Result: A little behind here. I'm starting the rough draft this week, which does include three days in July, so success, I guess? But I didn't come close to meeting the stretch goal.
  3. Work on closing out the launch of A Brush with Blood, including modifying the series launch plan as needed. Stretch goal: Close out the launch completely.
    • Result: Fail. I didn't get to this at all since creating those well-researched, targeted Amazon ads from goal #4 is taking more time than anticipated. But, better done well than done hurried.
  4. Start well-researched, targeted Amazon ads with a low bid. Monitor and adjust as needed.
    • Result: Failure of sorts. Really, it was a failure to foresee how much time it would take to do the "research" part of "well-researched, targeted Amazon ads". But I have been working on it (and even have a detailed plan for Amazon ads in general) and should finish it in the next week or so. I hope.
  5. Schedule cross promotions and giveaways into August and beyond as possible.
    • Result: Super-success! Cross promotions are scheduled through September and into October. August's giveaway spots are full, and September's are half full.

August 2019 Goals

  1. Book Four of The Clan-Vampire Clash (title TBD): Complete the developmental edits. Stretch goal: Start in on line editing.
  2. Season three of Sam's story (Troupe-only side story): Write the rough draft and complete the developmental edits for the entire season. Start in on line editing the first installment (which is actually a bit of stretch goal but I don't want to admit it, lol).
  3. Work on closing out the launch of A Brush with Blood, including modifying the series launch plan as needed. Stretch goal: Close out the launch completely.
  4. Start well-researched, targeted Amazon ads with a low bid. Monitor and adjust as needed.
  5. Schedule cross promotions and giveaways into September and beyond as possible.

And as usual, let's see what I was doing this time last year.
