Winter Blogfest: Charity Parkerson

A real resolution

Hey guys, I’m Charity Parkerson and I am an award winning, multi-published author with Ellora’s Cave Publishing and Punk & Sissy Publications. If you’d like to read more about that, you can find everything you need to know on my website”.

Today, I’m blogging about ringing in the New Year. Every year most of us set goals for ourselves, and then fail miserably within the first week, so this year instead of choosing resolutions I won’t keep, such as giving up sugar or taking up exercise, I’ve decided to set some realistic objectives this year.
Here are my choices in no particular order:

–I’m going to remember my appointments the first time around.
–Buy fewer inkpens (this is a real issue for me. I really love inkpens)
–Check on my friends before they are forced to send out a search party
–Extend the word count on my WIP

Okay, so I know it’s nothing huge, but honestly, I’m not good at change so I’ll have to take baby steps. My challenge for you today is to set some unique yet obtainable goals for yourself, and let me know what they are since your answer is going to enter you to win a $5 Amazon gift card, and a few e-copies of one or more of my books. You can find that list at the above link, but here’s a little bit about my latest release:

charity bedroomgames_msrBedroom Games

Pamela loves playing games, as do both her partners, just not together. There’s nothing like an exhilarating night of hide-and-seek or catch-me-if-you-can before a long evening of sex with one or the other. The problem? There’s a demon-possessed serial killer on the loose who loves playing sex games as much as Pamela does.

When Pamela’s sexual escapades catch the serial killer’s attention, the games begin in earnest as he corners her in her own house. Using her anger—and a handy baseball bat—to her advantage, she takes care of the serial killer, but the demon is even more interested now.

Inside Scoop: This scary tale contains brief references to incest, and graphic scenes of violence that may possess readers to keep a bat handy and all the lights on.

A Romantica® erotic horror romance from Ellora’s Cave

This title can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks, Kobo, or Ellora’s Cave.

    1. Take time to play more games with friends.
    2. Stay in touch with family.
    3. Pick one goal a month to accomplish

    • Charity Parkerson says:

      Those are great. We used to do a family game night once a month with my parents, sister and brother-in-law. We’ve been slacking the past few months, but we have so much fun.

  2. Karen H in NC says:

    Of course, tops on my list is continue losing weight. I lost 38 pounds in 2013 and hope to loose at least 40 pounds in 2014. It’s hard to do, but I shall persevere in this effort.

    BTW, you said “Check on my friends before they are forced to send out a search party”. Does that mean to find out if your friends are OK or to let them know YOU are OK? Just wondering….

    Happy New Year!

    • Charity Parkerson says:

      They’ll have to check on me. I’m really bad about disappearing when I begin working on a book. 😀 Good job on the weight loss. Food is my kryptonite. I have a terrible time with diets. I’m always impressed by people who have the will power to stick to them.

  3. The usual on my list is weight loss and learning to say no without ending up with bad conscience. Aside from that one of my goals is to finish some of the novel’s on my computer. I’m sure that I could come up with a lot more, but I’m trying to keep it realistic 😉

  4. Catherine Lee says:

    I have started to do this a little bit but I am going full force in the New Year…At work, I am going to pick up the phone more and visit colleagues offices more rather than sending an email. I find it easier and preferable to use email, but the phone and in-person visits add up to a more collegial relationship. SO that’s my goal.

  5. read more books

    Well I have officially quit smoking as of December 4th after 6 years, so one goal is to continue on with that in 2014. Another goal is to finish my first semester in college (this spring) with at least a B, and continue my education during the summer and fall semesters as well. Ofcourse the most important one: to visit my folks at least a couple times during the year now that I’ll be closer (haven’t seen them in 2 1/2 years). As you can see, I have a busy year ahead of me lol!

  7. My biggest goal is to finish at least two of my WIPs and submit them to my editor before the end of the year. I also need to make a much bigger dent in my to-be-read pile this year. If it weren’t for that darn day job…

  8. Marcy Nicole says:

    Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’ve threatened to wring a few necks!! Bedroom games looks really good by the way 🙂

  9. Sounds good.
    I’m aiming to not sweat the small stuff and try a more zen approach. Happy New Year!

  10. Continuing the ongoing decluttering battle at home 🙂 I’m a horrible packrat, and DH is super patient, but less stuff would be a great thing 🙂

    • Charity Parkerson says:

      I really need to clean my house too and do some organizing, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. lol
