The Three Books I Wrote This Year
As 2018 winds down, this seems as good a time as any to take stock of the year that has just passed.
- I finished my second novel, edited the hell out of it, polished the edits, sent it out to beta readers, integrated their feedback, and sent it out to be considered for publication. It weighs in at about 83,000 words.
- I finished a stand-alone novella weighing in at just a little over 20,000 words (if I recall correctly). I still need to spend time polishing this one, but I don’t expect it to take very long to whip it into shape.
- I finished a group of thirteen poems (several of which are loosely linked). Some of the poems are long and some are short. I just finished this project today. I’ll need to run this through another round of editing, mostly to make certain that continuity has been established between the linked pieces.
- I’m also working on getting a Mr. Suicide audiobook project finalized. This has taken me far too long to finish.
- 2018 also marked the tenth year of my writing career. (Yes, I made efforts as long as twenty-five years ago, but I didn’t have the work ethic to make progress until 2008. That’s the year I really started.)
Anyway, I have no information yet about when any of these new projects might land in your hands. But I’ll post news here when it becomes available.
