You may have noticed that I haven’t been speaking about new writing projects as of late. Well, I made a promise to both my wife and myself that I wouldn’t start anything new until the first draft of my first novel and that moment is growing ever nearer. With my day job being a bit crazy as of late and the kiddos at home being even crazier it has been a slow journey that has been hard fought and will be harder won. Now that I’ve typed The End on the first draft I can get into some other things again while I take a breather from editing.
That isn’t to say that I haven’t been busy though outside of the novel.
So here is a little of what you can expect in the future aside from an impending announcement saying I’m finished with the first draft!
First off, I’ve still got three short stories out there which I’ve sold and are just waiting on officially announcements and being printed. Hopefully, I’ll be able to share details on all of them in the near future!
Secondly, I do still have about 10 shorts laying around that are complete or nearly so and just have to find the right home for. Hopefully some of those will be coming up int he near future as well. (4 have just went out to submission land in the last few days!)
Third, I’ve been exploring alternate markets as of late with reprints and other short work that hasn’t been published. One such example is my short “A Flash of Light” being reprinted in ‘Best Horror Shorts 2015“. Another such example is I have just closed on selling a drabble to The Flash Fiction Press which will be published online March 7th, 2016 so there will be more details on that in the near future. There are a few other things in the works as well which I’ll be sharing once anything comes from them.
Finally, I have a few updates in the works for the website itself for those who do frequent it.
So, thanks for keeping in touch and I hope to have more words for you to read in print in the near future!
