My 2019 Goals

2018 was a pretty lax year as far as my books and writing goes. I gave birth to my second child in May, so I didn’t go into 2018 with many goals other than tending to my little humans.

I feel like I can be a little more productive with all things bookish and writerly in 2019. My goals are achievable with some hardwork and forward planning, so I shall start as I mean to go on…

1. Set up a review squad for all future ARCs.

My main focus will be Amazon reviews. I’m looking into efficient ways to boost reviews and find reliable reviewers for old and new books.

Actually, this is already set up on my blog and on Linktree, but I haven’t promoted it yet. Watch this space in the very near future.

2. Finish getting EVO Ghost and Zombie Playlist in print.

I am 3/4 of the way to finalising this. I just haven’t had the time to put in to perfecting the paperbacks, so I left it until I did. I want it done right, after all.

3. Signed copies.

I shall be doing limited amounts of signed copies of my books at different times throughout the coming year. There will be some giveaways thrown in too.

4. Finish the first draft of my new zombie novella.

This is totally doable. I know the tone of the narrative and voices of the characters, so that’s me set. I hope to finish the first draft in the first 1/4 of 2018.

The cover is ready!!! No doubt there will be a reveal in due course. I think I might do a cover and title reveal at the same time.

5. Pick up where I left off on my Indigo Flame novel book 2, The Red Archer.

This novel is much more time consuming, so I’m realistic in thinking completion of the first draft in 2018 might be a stretch. Time will tell.

6. Schedule my blog series.

I’m planning to schedule 4 series in blocks of ten weeks. There will be a few weeks break in between each, but I will constantly post book reviews and monthly updates.

My first series is related to one of my books, Prompt Me. This starts Wednesday Jan 2nd. I will also start a regular Teaser Tuesday feature on Tuesday Jan 8th. Book reviews will be posted on Fridays, and Sundays will be my sharing days, whether that be blogs I like, Instagrammers worth a follow etc.


Those are my plans so far. Once I start checking some off of my list, I shall think about new plans and goals, but I’ve got enough to be cracking on with.

What are your goals for 2018?

Favourite Read of 2018

As always on Writerly Bookish Stuff, I like to boast my favourite read of the year. This year, I read mostly novellas, but the novels I have read have been fantastic. It was hard to choose.

I chose the following book because it covered all the bases that appeal to me as a reader and writer: a group of characters you can root for, fantastic world building, and engrossing narrative.

So, without further ado…

When Stars Burn Out

Goodreads Reading Challenge 2018

I have just realised that I have hit my 40 books Goodreads Challenge. Whoop whoop!

This year has been a little more hectic with the addition of my son, so last year’s 80 book goal was a no go. Halving that total for 2018 was spot on. Granted, I have read a lot of novellas due to a lack of time, but I’m amazed I hit 40 with how crazy this year has been.

However, that isn’t me done! I shall see what my actual amount is at the end of December.

Are you participating in the Goodreads Challenge? Have you hit your goal, or still working on it? There’s still time, so good luck.

Writerly Bookish Me

I have quite a few new followers of late, so I thought I do a quick post to tell you who I am and what I write.

I’m known as K.J to most due to my author name, K.J.Chapman, but my name is Kayleigh. I’m a 32 year old mother of two (one is just 5 months young), and I am a self published author of 5 books.

I particularly like to write in the urban fantasy and fantasy genres, not forgetting the zombie off-shoot of the horror genre.

This blog is dedicated to all things writerly and bookish, and I make all my book related announcements through here.

Currently, I am dedicating Wednesdays to my Writerly Wisdom posts for author quotes and tips. Book reviews are posted as and when I finish a book, and the last Friday of every month is an update post on my writing life.

Thank you to my new followers for joining me, and thanks to my old followers for sticking around.
