Apologies for the lack of updates for a while. Between the holidays and my sister giving birth to a brand new baby girl (my first nice), it’s been pretty hectic. However, I wanted to post a quick update so folks know what to expect for the new year.
I’m working on a new novel I hope to have finished and turned in to the publisher by March. It is the supernatural horror novel mentioned a in my last post. This book will initially appear in LE HC, but hopefully I will have news soon regarding other versions as well. I believe this year will see the audiobook release of The Hollower and a chapbook version of a short story called “The Anathema Cell.” I’m working on plans for paperback versions of the Hollower trilogy — I’ll keep you posted.
You may have also noticed some updates to the website, particularly in the Locations of Interest section. If you’re the type of reader who likes fun little trivia extras about your books, this section offers that and more for most of the novels and novellas where location is of some significance to the plot. In the Writer’s Life section, I’ve been blogging semi-regularly, mostly about life-stuff, if that interests you. I’ve been trying to include blog posts specifically related to my life in the business, and how I’m functioning in it.
I’m looking to add to appearances this year at various conventions and events. So far, I’m planning on the following conventions, but these are just plans. When they are confirmed, the Appearances page will be updated with the details:
Marcon, Columbus, OH
WHC, New Orleans
NECon, Bristol, RI
I’d also like to do some readings and signings — details will follow.
I also wanted to say how much I appreciate the support of readers and fans who have bought, traded, discussed, reviewed, and spoke favorably about my work to date. It means so much to know there are folks out there who are reading and enjoying my books. I wish all of you and your loved ones a safe, healthy, happy, productive new year full of exciting surprises, happy accidents, beautiful sunsets, memorable moments, and cherished time spent with those you care about doing things that matter. I wish you all peace of mind, time to relax, and good fortune. Every year ought to be better than the last….
