Hello, end of the year. We meet again.

First of all, my debut novel Signal to Noise can be downloaded from NetGalley. So if you are a reviewer get there, get reviewing. The book is on sale February. It’s a tale about magic and music set in Mexico City. Three teenage friends in the late 1980s learn how to cast spells using vinyl records. But magic can’t solve all your problems.

As far as a year of the end recap I published one short story collection, Love & Other Poisons, which included three new stories.

My first collection was a finalist for the 2014 Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic..

I also had several stories published:

“Variations of Figures Upon the Wall” (Where thy Dark Eye Glances: Queering Poe) appeared in audio format at Pseudopod in November 2014.

I reached $120 at Patreon, where you can support me.

I edited Fractured, Tales of the Canadian Post-Apocalypse and Sword and Mythos.

Through Innsmouth Free Press I published the last issue of Innsmouth Magazine, The Nickronomicon, Jazz Age Cthulhu and Confraternitas.

I am halfway through my Master’s degree in Science and Technology Studies and submitted my prospectus. It was approved.

Next year my biggest thing is to sell another novel. I also need to complete the third novel I’ve been working on which is 50,000 words at this point.

I have been feeling depressed lately. I do a lot of stuff but I’m constantly short on cash and I feel like few people care about the stuff I write. Business is not exactly booming at Innsmouth Free Press, for example. Thinking about my debut novel keeps me awake at night. I wonder if it’ll do okay or if I just bought a one way ticket to failure.

But enough of that. Here’s a music video.
