2013 and Beyond
2013 was a pretty good year. To start with both the Hellequin books published in 2012 were doing very well, well enough for 47North to contact me and offer me a publishing contract. From that they ended up as a bestselling series. I published a Novella that appears to have been accepted well and I’ve started writing book 4 in the Hellequin books, while drafting the first book in a new series.
There were downsides too. If I’d managed my time better I probably could have written the first Chimera book this year, and my day job has gone downhill considerably, but faced off against my family and friends being happy and healthy and my writing going well, I can’t complain too much.
I’ve met some incredible and talented new people this year, many of whom are now good friends, even if they live in different parts of the world to me. And in one weird case, have a hankering for dino porn (you know who you are).
So, 2013 was pretty cool. Hopefully 2014 will be even better.
So here’s to you; my friends and family, fellow writers and readers. Each of you made 2013 considerably better for having you in it. And no matter how good or bad your 2013 was, here’s to your 2014 being awesome.
