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:
- The Yellow Door (Dangerous Games, December 2014)
- Phrase Book (The Dark, May 2014)
- Men in Blue Overcoats (Handsome Devil: Tales of Sin and Seduction, February 2014)
- Kaleidoscope (AE – The Canadian Science Fiction Review, January 2014)
I reached $120 at Patreon, where you can support me.
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.
