Beat the Backlist Challenge


I don’t feel like my 2017 Beat the Backlist challenge was very fruitful.  Not only did I fall off my list, I also stopped filling out the form to log my page count.  In 2018 I’m going to do much better.  That’s my goal anyway.  This is supposed to the asskicking I need to get my butt in gear!

If any of you are interested in Beating on your Backlist he rules are simple:

Challenge runs from January 1-December 31 2018
Your book cannot be pubbed in 2018

Now, you head on over to NovelKnight and sign up.  That way we can compare notes!
