Another year over

happynewyear copyThe end of 2015 is approaching rapidly, which gives us an opportunity to reflect on the year that it was.

For me, it was the first year in a few when I wasn’t anticipating or experiencing the release of a full-length novel. In fact, nothing new of mine would have been released at all if not for the recent release of the Glimpses of Light anthology, which features a short story of mine. If you haven’t already, you can buy Glimpses of Light here. It’s been great to have at least one new piece of writing released in 2015.

I’m still not sure whether there will be anything new from me in 2016, but I’m confident either next year or 2017 will see a new novel from me. Watch this space for more details. I’ll let you know as soon as I do.

This year has been a tricky one in a number of ways. I’ve encountered a few struggles in trying to make ends meet, something many authors experience regularly. However, I’ve also added a few new bookshops to my list of places for signings, which has been encouraging. I’ve found a number of new events, some which I will attend again, others which I now know are not worth my time and effort.

Also, today I saw just how easy it can be to be targeted when you’re out there on the internet. My Facebook author page was hacked overnight and an ad was posted on it, one which I was then charged for. Hopefully though, those costs will be recovered, and the ad has now been removed.

So there were many highs and lows in the year that was 2015. What will 2016 bring? Hopefully a new release, hopefully some new events where I can share my work, and hopefully some new people who I can interact with, and who like my work.

What are your hopes for 2016? Let me know in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
