What Kind of Year Has it Been

I can’t believe 2015 is already coming to a close.


It’s surreal really.  This whole year has been.  It’s been a big year for me.  A lot has happened.  Both in my personal life and as an author.  Which are not always one and the same, but rather contiguous parts of me.

Writing-wise a lot happened.  I released 5 novellas.  3 of which I wrote this year.  I’m really proud of them, and I get the happy feels whenever I think of them.  From Joshua and Will starting out the year in Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds to Dan and Vincent bringing the year to a close with Something Like Peace just two weeks ago, I couldn’t be happier with these stories.  I hope you enjoyed them, too.

Dan and Vincent will make their first appearance on Friday, so if you haven’t read their story yet, you’ve still got some time.

In the personal life, the biggest thing that happened was some massive upheaval at the day job.  It happened twice, with two different things, all the in the last six months.  It’s caused a lot of anxiety, weird dreams, and sleepless nights.  It’s definitely taken it’s toll on yours truly, and it’s a wonder I didn’t go back to smoking (8 months smoke free and counting!).  But I have persevered and I have to believe that someway, somehow, it has made me stronger.

So it’s been a big year.  Some good, some bad.  And that’s how I know I’m alive and kicking.  It’s also given me some goals to shoot for in 2016.  I know a little more what I’m capable of if I push myself (or get pushed, lol) and I’m looking forward to accomplishing much more in the year ahead.

I’m working on a new story now, though at the moment I’m doing it very slowly.  And I’ve got plans for the next two after that.  This upcoming year might not be as big as last year, but it certainly going to have it’s own shining moments.

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you’ve had a banner year.  And I wish you nothing but goodness and beautiful things for 2016!
