- Out think the publishing industry by writing the next international bestseller. This book will have all the right elements - vampires, wizards and a revenge-seeking rape victim out to make a fashion statement.
- Make readers fall in love with my characters to the point that restraining orders may be necessary. I haven't done my job if my fictional characters are not being stalked by the delusional.
- Rack up jaw-dropping book reviews from critics, book bloggers and most importantly - readers. This will probably involve sitting in a Denny's doling out my life savings to shady characters who look nothing like their online avatars.
- Build my Twitter "tribe" to a gazillion followers through much Charlie Sheen like behavior. And yes, this will involve myself, a machete and a pair of worn out porn stars (unfortunately, from the 1950's).
Once I have accomplished all this, SUCCESS will be mine!
