I spent my exciting New Year’s Eve working on my WIP, my 13th novel. How about you?
I have a new project planned for this year: a newsletter. I hope to send it out quarterly or so. I promise I won’t clog your email inbox with spam! The newsletter will contain updates on my new releases, sneak peeks of works in progress, free short stories, contests, and whatever else I can think of to entertain you. It’s quick and easy to sign up. Just click here or fill in the form in the sidebar to your right. And if there’s anything special you’d like to see in the first newsletter, please let me know.
2014 was a busy year! I published 3 novels (Pilgrimage, Motel. Pool., and Bone Dry) and 3 novellas (“The Pillar”, “The Golem of Mala Lubovnya”, and “The Dance”), and some short stories. I had translations released in German, French, and Spanish. Three of my books came out in audio format.
And of course I worked on more. I currently have two novellas set for publication this spring (one of them will be in the third Gothika anthology, Claw. It has a werewolf theme!). I recently submitted my 12th novel and I’m almost done with the first draft of the 13th. Several French translations and another audiobook are currently in the works.
I also updated my website and started regular features on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Since I started using a FitBit during the summer, I’ve walked 743 miles.
And I got to see some old friends and meet lots of wonderful new people at the Gay Romance Northwest meetup in Seattle, at GayRomLit in Chicago, and at Bent-Con in Burbank.
Travel-wise, I didn’t leave the US this year. But I do get around. I made 3 trips to the Pacific Northwest, a couple to southern California, and one to the city where I was born, Chicago. I made some shorter treks too, to the Sierra foothills, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco. I’m planning a couple of farther jaunts in 2015. Orlando’s on the agenda, as is Washington, D.C., and–I hope–Europe. I’m not sure where in Europe yet. Definitely Croatia, but maybe also Malta and/or someplace else. Where should I choose?
I hope 2015 is a good year for all of you, filled with peace, joy, and lots of reading!
