Something I didn’t draw too much attention to last year for a lot of reasons was my transition from writing part-time to writing full-time. It was a careful thing, done in stages, carried out with the full support of my then-boss.
And it started September 1, 2015. As I think most people reading this blog can guess, it went well enough that most of those stages got jumped over and I was no longer even working part-time by the end of 2015.
Since September 2015, I have launched five novels (with the sixth, Alien Arcana coming out shortly), closed seven audiobook deals, been in a novella anthology (Experiments and Enchantments, which I don’t believe is available any longer), set up as a micro-press (Faolan’s Pen Publishing Inc), moved provinces from Alberta to Ontario, and generally been very, very, very busy.
It’s been a mind-boggling year in a lot of ways. It still hasn’t really sunk in that I get to write for a living.
I have plans going forward, though currently I’m going to stay very vague on release dates. If everything comes together as planned, we should have four more novels (including Alien Arcana, obviously) out this year O_o, including launching an urban fantasy thriller series that I hope you all will love!
So thank you all.
Without you, this would never have happened.
