One hour and twenty-two minutes to go, so here’s he obligatory end of year wrap.
Basically, a slow 2012 publishing wise. I had 3-4 stories published, with one accepted which will see the light of day in 2013 in the e-anthology, Ill at Ease 2. I was very pleased to have a story in Dark Minds Press anthology, ‘Darker Minds’, which featured a number of very, very good established writers and some sharp up and comers.
Biggest highlight was beginning and finishing a fantasy novel – something I’ve dreamed of doing for over twenty years. And in the end, surprisingly, not that difficult to do (well, hindsight is a wonderful thing – sometimes getting the words out was like sifting through my brain with a pair of tongs!) but I got there.
Still waiting for several stories to see the light of day despite acceptances from some time ago. The Lighthouse was meant to come out from Estronomicon Press in 2011! Blood Fire from Rogue Blades Entertainment also from 2011 and Tropic of Cancer from Black House Comics but not sign yet. Fingers crossed for all of them.
Not much planned for 2013, though I intend having a crack at another novel, editing the crap out of my first effort, and some more short fiction writing.
See you all on the other side!
