that spec is more of a pvp build than pve...i have a pretty solid pve build for kara and heroics...http://www.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Deathwing&n=Snapcraklpop
it focuses on lowering threat, mana regen, and resistance to stuns, fears, and silences which is nice for heroics and raids. Hope this helps.

I dunno much about SP but is this build any good.
I didn't the increase chance of crit on MB and SW:Death because MB causes a high amount of threat and getting a critical hit on it would be bad in a raid, not sure. And if you need a crit to kill the monster with SW:D you should use somethin else.

Your build is actually alright, and you may be used to it, so changing it could cause problems. But there's some stuff on the disc tree that's very useful, and some points you spent in shadow are kinda a waste for pve. I'll link the shadow build I used when soloing, snagged from a high level raiding shadow priest (so this build works well for raids as well, which as a shadow priest you may find yourself in a raiding guild). It may also have been already linked by someone else in this thread, not sure lol. Either way, I highly recommend this puppy for soloing:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=bxRMzhZZxGxpMLohtEo
edit: brenwah3000, that build needs Spirit Tap badly, it's the first 5 points that should go into any shadow build. Also, Shadow Power should be in there. Good attempt tho! ^^

I have to slightly disagree with the last build. Shadow looks good, but the second tier of the Disc tree isn't optimal, imo.
Martyrdom will not save you in PvE. If you get crit, you are either dead or the next hit will kill you, and not losing casting time isn't really going to help. Your solutions for suviving are instant cast, anyway. Psychic Scream, Fade, Shield...
Best bet, of course, is to not get agro.
I would much rather put those points in Imp Shield. I find that my mages and warlocks ask to be shielded on aoe pulls, and it can buy your healers time, if necessary, without dropping shadowform.
I would go with something like this, at least until you get enough spell hit to drop points from Shadow Focus.http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=bxMhzhZZxGxpMLohtEo
