April 4: What to be if I grow up

What do you want to be if you grow up? Describe your best-case career scenario in three paragraphs, each covering a concurrent year.

By this time next year, I want to have a publishing deal and have at least two books out – “Middle of Nowhere” and “Shooting Blanks”.  Hell, I’ll probably be half-way through writing the third, if not completely done because when I sit down to write, when the muse is here, shit gets done FAST.

In two years, I want to have enough books released that my convention tables look like a shop.  I’m thinking about “field guides” as an adjunct to the regular novels, and someone (several someones) even said that they could see that first series working well as comics.  (Y’all know how much I love comics.)

In three years, I’m seeing a nice level of success, and I have to turn the internet off consciously every night for want of trying to reply to everyone.  I have a robust convention/tour schedule, and people think my hair is great.

(I like to dream big.)
