This isn't going to be one of those posts about everything I have on my plate for the new year. I have plenty of things I'm working on. Some new; some old. Most of my upcoming writing endeavors will be in an interview with Fiona Mcvie, which is coming up very soon, so those of you who hang on my every word will have something to look forward to there. I hope. My interviews are never boring, so it should be interesting at least.
For my non-writing endeavors, I actually plan to learn some new things in the computer world so that Terri DelCampo, my spouse, editor, and formatter, doesn't have to do everything herself. At the moment, I edit and market, so this should be interesting. Watch out world.
Also, Terri has been doing all the art work for the Blazing Owl Press books. For those not in the know, that is a new Small Press for books that Terri and I write together or singly. I'll start doing cover art for some books there. Why do we do everything ourselves? Good question. We get all the money. Ahah! Well, maybe it's so we don't have to spend as much money on things we can do ourselves. Lots of my friends like to fly solo with their books. There's no reason not to if an author has the skills to handle what needs to be done. Our editing is the easiest part because we are both editors and edit each others work.
One thing will not change for me: my telling the world about my author friends. I am huge into Women In Horror. That will always be a huge focus for me. Many of you know that Terri has been a Woman In Horror twice. It got us together and now she's stuck with me. Poor woman. I also like to be friendly with other Small Presses. I am published with a number of them and got to meet some fantastic authors and publishers along the way. That's the fun part of this business. The people. I love spinning a yarn, but I love reading other authors' works as well.
The rest of what I'm up to, like I said before, will be in the interview with Fiona. I'll let you know as soon as I'm finished with it.
Have a great New Year. Happy reading and writing.
