Goldi and the Bear Release Day is Coming Soon

Thursday’s Bite

a blog about fun happenings in my paranormal world

I’m getting excited! It’s almost here, the release day blitz for my spicy new adult novella Goldi and the Bear from Bewitching Tours is on Monday, July 22nd, and I’m giving away e-copies! Stop back here on Monday and click on the links. There will be opportunities at all the tour stops to win an e-copy and I’ll be giving away even more books to anyone who visits all sixteen stops and leaves a comment at each one, then comes back here and let’s me know. Two ways to win spicy new adult romance with a fairy tale twist!

goldi and the bear by jessica aspenGoldi and the Bear is the third book in the Twisted Tales: Come Into the Woods Series, and it was  fun one to write. At first I struggled, because the Goldilocks story really only has one girl getting into trouble on her own, but once I looked at why Goldi might need to get into a strange bear’s house, the plot really came together. For Goldi and Zeke, love’s been put on the back burner since high school, and starts to boil over when Goldi’s life is falling apart and Zeke’s life is finally coming together.

This novella is packed with action, spicy romance between  two people still angry over their break up years before, but unable to resist their attraction. Like all the Twisted Tales in this series it has a Romeo and Juliet theme of lovers whose families wouldn’t approve, but unlike the Snow and the Seventh Wolf and Little Red Riding Wolf where the romance is between human and supernatural, in this case it’s between a werebear and a werewolf.

One of the pieces of the plotting puzzle that came together nicely is the suspense plot that weaves through the story. Goldi is about to lose her ranch and she needs her missing father to help her re-finance, but he’s off running around as a wild wolf and she’s on her own dealing with the bank. Add in a mysterious buyer for the ranch, someone setting traps on Zeke’s land, and it all spells trouble for Goldi’s efforts to save the land that’s been in her family for generations.

Goals post #3

Today is my last day on the Bewitching Tour for Little Red Riding Wolf. Check out today’s guest post on:

And A Girl and Her Kindle reviews Little Red Riding Wolf:

Now on to the real post!

January is my traditional time for reviewing and setting goals. On New Year’s Eve I posted last year’s goals and showed you how I did. Click here for Goals Past and Present to see my 2012 goals and how well I did on hitting them. (Okay, I didn’t hit them all!)

 Check out the post Changing Goals for the New Year  for advice on setting goals and discover my own goal-setting pitfalls.

Today I’m posting my goals for 2013, but I have to add a caveat. I’ve already changed my goals several times since the beginning of the month. It’s taken me almost the entire month to quit waffling on where I want to go and how to get there, but I think I’m finally set on where this year is taking me.

Jessica Aspen Goals for 2013

Overall Organizational Goals: 

  1. Continue to set and review monthly goals, set daily goals based on monthly goals
  2. Write five days per week, 3 hours per day
  3. Goal is 3k/day
  4. and edit 15-20 pages per day
  5. Keep up with personal site, blog 2 days a week
  6. Self-publishing class in January (taking a fabulous class on Author EMS with  Amy Atwell and Kelli Finger!)
  7. Tax class in February from Colorado Romance Writers.
  8. Market 1-2 hours per day
  9. Attend CRW Writing Retreat in September 

Writing Goals 

  1. Finish editing Goldi and the Bear by January 18th
  2. Polish Goldi and the Bear  by January 30th
  3. Write rough draft of B&B (second book in TQH series)
  4. Edit rough draft of B&B
  5. Start thinking about 3rd book in  TQH series
  6. Outline 3rd book in TQH series
  7. Superhero goals: Edit BW and outline first book in that series

Marketing Goals 

  1. Submit Goldi and the Bear to PIP by January 30th
  2. Decide what to do with HH Novellas
  3. Continue to submit TQH
  4. Market all books (Little Red. S&S. Goldi)
  5. Enter Little Red in  contests
  6. Enter TQH into contests
  7. Increase presence on Goodreads
  8. Work on All Romance Exposure
  9. Figure out how to increase presence on reader sites/loops

So that’s it. I’ve slimmed my goals down and streamlined my writing goals. B&B will be written this year, I’ve put it off long enough. And I’m excited to be releasing Snow and the Seventh Wolf this month. Check out Thursday’s post for details and how you can win a review copy.

How are your goals for the year? Have you set them? It’s not too late, I don’t think it’s ever too late. 🙂
