Dariel's World

Hi. I'm Dariel Raye, an interracial/multi-cultural paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and psy/suspense author, and every day of this journey is a learning experience. I'm also a counselor, musician, and animal lover. My stories are about all-conquering love and romance, and I enjoy hosting other authors as well. Enter a world where werewolves, vampires, multi-shifters, vamp-like Nephilim, Vodouin Fey, and all things paranormal capture our hearts...

Dariel's 2013 Writing Goals

Writing Goals for 2013

Though never posted, my writing goals for 2012 were partially reached. As far as completions, the year got off to a slow start, but my “Alerians – Dark Progeny” series was accepted by Red Rose Publishing in March, and I released book one of the self-published “Dark Sentinels” series mid-July. Book one of “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” series, “Jordan’s Wings,” was released mid-October.

Also, “Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin” is in the hands of my editor as we speak. She says she’ll get it to me within the week, so I plan to release it by Valentine’s Day. Book two of “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” series, “Gideon’s Light,” should be right on its heels as long as I don’t have any more health problems stealing my writing time and focus. My publisher wanted it much sooner, like yesterday :-P

            So, as for overall goals for 2013, here’s one of my beloved lists:

1.     Complete rewrites for book 2 of “Dark Sentinels” series and release in February.
2.     Complete book 2 of “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” series and send to editor by March.
3.     Complete book 3 of “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” series and send to editor by end of May.
4.     Complete book 3 of “Dark Sentinels” to send to editor by end of July.
5.     Complete rewrites for book 3 of “Dark Sentinels” and release in September
6.     Complete Christmas novelette by end of September to send to editor.
7.     Complete outline of “Children of Cain Book One: Ishmael” by end of October.
8.     Successfully complete Nano Wrimo with “Children of Cain.”
9.     Complete content rewrites for full-length reincarnation novel, “Aidan’s Will” and send to editor by end of December.

Stay tuned for my blogging updates, stats, and goals J
