FIve Year Goal Review

Last Friday of the Month
It's the last Friday of the month, which makes it time to review some goals. Thanks to Misha Gericke coming up with this idea/hosting this each month. Feel like getting involved? You can, here .
My goal is to have a world class publishing company in 5 years--2020. I know, I know--it's over-the-top; but why not? It doesn't hurt to hope does it? What we do on the last Friday of the month is review how it's going. For me it's going well. Ubooks are patent pending, and Black and White is publishing it's first one (besides my own) in June. We've hired a Marketing Director and Music Director, which are two huge pieces in this process. We are actively reviewing pieces to see what we will publish next. Because Ubooks are so labor intensive, we're being very selective in that process.   Hopefully next month I'll be announcing more Ubooks being released.
How about you? Any goals you're working on?
Have a great weekend--


  1. Since you're taking submissions, what's Black and White's web address so I can post it for you next week?

  2. Here's the page that gives all the submission info:
    You can email it right to me at:
    Can't wait to read it!

  3. Hi Melanie! I'm glad you set yourself such a mighty goal and are well on the way of achieving it. I'd be interested to know more about Black and White. But I must have missed something--what is UBooks?

    Reading Alex's comment. He meant that he would give you some promo on his blog. He's great at that!

    I will be checking out your submission guidelines!


  4. I see I need to come back and read more about UBooks. I checked out your info. I write novellas and short stories...

  5. Wow, that's impressive! Best of luck on your company!

  6. Sounds like you've been making some awesome progress. Best of luck with finding the next piece to publish. :-D

  7. Creating and running a new publishing house - that's a mighty goal. All the best in your endeavors. I'll be checking your submission guidelines later today.

  8. Seems like you're making steady progress. Also you've defined your target market and decided to be selective about the titles you intend to publish. I'm sure that's the right way to go. Keeping my fingers crossed for your successful venture.

  9. That's fantastic! Keep plugging away. Seems like you're on the right track.
