We have a winner! Special thanks to all who participated in the 2013 Spec Faith 2013 End-of-the-Year Writing Challenge–those who entered, who voted in either or both first rounds, who gave feedback to the writers, and who were part of choosing our winner. As you can see in the poll results, our winner is Mirtika! Congratulations!
With the year drawing to a close, I thought it might be interesting if our Spec Faith family takes a moment to share writing and reading goals for 2014. I’ll go first.
For my reading, I plan to participate in the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour again this year, so that means 10 to 12 newly published books which I’ll read and review. We’re starting with Outburst by Jill Williamson. We’ve also slotted One Realm Beyond by Donita Paul for February, A Draw of Kings by Patrick Carr for March, Shadow Hand by Anne Elisabeth Stengl for April, and Cloak of the Light: Wars of the Realm, Book 1 by Chuck Black for May.
For my own writing, I have three non-fiction ebooks I’m aiming to complete, the first scheduled to come out in early January. But this is about fiction. I’m still working on the prequel to the four-book series I wrote called The Lore of Efrathah. The working title for the new book is LIARS AND THIEVES.
So how about you? What books have you heard about that you just have to read or, at least, you hope to read? What writing projects would you like to complete?
Of course, there’s also TV and movies. Any TV shows you’re anticipating? (Besides Downtown Abbey, January 5 . . . but who’s looking forward to that one. And besides, it isn’t speculative, so it doesn’t count.) How about movies you’ve heard about that are scheduled for 2014?
