It feels strange to write a year in review for 2016. I haven’t written many blogs this year, I think one of the few I did do was the year in review for 2015. I won’t claim I’ll try and blog more in 2015 because I know I won’t. I kept busy over the last twelve months, and I intend to keep as busy, or hopefully busier, in the twelve to come.
So. What have I been up to?
Well, writing-wise, and I’m only ever here to talk about writing, I’d say it’s been my best year yet. I had more short stories published in 2016 than ever before in some great publications, some new and some established – Crime Syndicate, Spelk, Near to the Knuckle etc.
Speaking of Near to the Knuckle, here’s the biggest news. My novella An Eye For An Eye, the first novella I haven’t published myself, was released by Near To The Knuckle as part of their Knuckle Cracking Novellas range.
For 2017, I intend to stay as busy. Hopefully I’ll find success with it, I’ve been pretty fortunate so far! My novel Fatboy will be released by renowned American publisher All Due Respect round May time so that’s something to look forward to, but there’s plenty to be getting on with in the meantime.
Back to work I get, these stories aren’t gonna write themselves, and I’ve got a lot planned. As Bob Dylan said, ‘I got a head full of ideas that are driving me insane’.
