2012 was an odd year. It had a few small highs, a couple of incredible lows, and a lot of middling ground where I felt like I just wanted to get the year out of the way.
But enough of that. Now it's 2013, and there are plans to be made.
Right now, thanks to karate and running, I feel fitter than I have done in about five years. This year I'm continuing in the same manner, and hope to keep getting fitter, faster, stronger and sleeker as the year advances.
2013 will see a few new releases from me.
There's my novella Nightsiders, due in April, from DarkFuse.
My short apocalyptic novel The End will be launched at the World Fantasy Convention by Newcon Press in November.
Then there's my Secret Project - the one I'm not yet allowed to say very much about. A short supernatural novel called The Bones of You, which will be released at Halloween as a lovely limited hardcover.
This year I'll also be finishing The Quiet Room and handing it over to my agent, who'll hopefully then sell it to a major publisher for a hefty advance as part of a three-book deal. We shall see... Whatever happens, I'm very excited about this one. It's shaping up to be the best thing I've ever written.
