2017 has been a big year. Attended three conventions - at which I gave three well-attended workshops - spent a LOT of time editing various novels; edited a 100000 word short story anthology, finished writing the first draft of a new novel, wrote several short stories, got short-listed in the Writers of the Future competition, listened to a lot of writing-craft podcasts. Realised I still know nothing!
But 2018 is shaping up to be HUGE. Will be releasing IRON, the first in the Kalima Trilogy, come hell or high water. Also releasing all three of the Shadows trilogy. Cover release in January. 80AD book 1 is part of an amazing book bundle "On the Horizon" which will come out in May. (I have a fabulous artist working on new covers for 80AD).
Of course there's no guarantees anything will be a 'success' in the traditional, 'rolling-in-money' kind of way. But, to be honest, I'm just happy if a few people like my stories and enjoy my workshops and I get to connect with some like-minded souls in this isolating world we live in today.
See you on the other side of the New Year!
