Reading Challenge / 1st book update

 I decided for 2014 to read 100 books this year. I read about 75 books last year, though I did not record them for the challenge last year. I just started using goodreads last year sometime and recently have been adding everything I have read so far. So I will continue to work on that.

2014 Reading Challenge
Raquel has read 5 books toward her goal of 100 books.

Along with reading Innocence, which I am almost done reading. I am also reading DIY Publishing by Maggie McVay Lynch. I got this e-book for free from my winners goodies when participating in NaNoWriMo. It is very interesting so far, though I will say some of it I skim over since it pertains to how she published and what sites she went through/ wants you to buy from.

Now for the exciting news about my 1st book!

My friend was designing the cover to my first book that I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2013. She just finished with it last night so I ordered my free hardback cover through LuLu. I should receive it by the end of this week and will post pictures of it then. But until then I will give you a small preview.

I will be using this book to read through myself to do finishing edits before I use the createspace offer to get two free paper backs for friends to beta read through. If that goes well I will most likely have this self published for people to buy by the end of the year.

Also for CampNaNoWriMo in April I will be working on the second book to this series. Most likely. I have a few story ideas to work from but it would seem the characters from this series really want their stories told. We will see though and I will decide as it gets closer to April.

Who else is doing CampNaNoWriMo?
Do you already have your novel ideas ready to go?
