It's almost time to farewell 2015. It's been a busy year, an overly ambitious year, and overall a not-too-bad year. So bring on 2016!
What will the new year involve? In all likelihood I will quit my job and be Batman ... an author ... for a year. Like, a proper author. One who can actually stick to a deadline. By the end of that year I'd really like to keep on being a proper author because working for someone else when the only motivation is a paycheque can be quite tedious.
Of course, it will mean that my entire career now rests on my shoulders. I will try to periodically off-load some of that burden onto you guys, so a nice review and a little word of mouth would really mean a lot to me. :)
I'm planning on publishing at least two books in 2016. One is called Last Words. In it, a British backpacker is caught in the middle of Spain just as the zombie apocalypse kicks off. Does he hide in a rickety country house and wait this thing out? No. What about hiding in a shopping mall? No. What about calling upon Milla Jovovich and asking for some help? … Maybe.
The other book geared for release in mid 2016 is Broken Toys. In a sleepy English town three young boys climb into the wrong backyard ... a twenty year old abduction sparks new interest among the locals ... and a shadowy figure known by everyone but rarely seen a second time seems to haunt the streets at all hours of the day.
So those books are kind of my plan. Any tips and feedback will be greatly appreciated. :)
