New projects and new goodies for my readers! I unveiled this on Facebook earlier today, but now I’ll share with you guys. I’ve taken a challenge up to self-publish 12 of my short stories, one each month. The lovely JA Marlow designed this month’s cover for Convoy, which is a short story set in a world of mine that I’m calling True Souls. This story was originally published in the 2012 Forward Motion anthology “The Princess, the Boatman and the Lizard,” and is going to be available soon as an ebook. I’ll definitely let you guys know when that’s available, but I have to share the cover now.
Now, this isn’t the only thing that I’m working on this year. This year is the year of finishing and submitting things. Right now, I’m working on the prewriting for my next novel, tentatively titled Faerytale Princess, which is about a female executive who is literally stolen away from her work’s bathroom by a prince of a magic kingdom. It’s a fun romp, and the plan is to have it finished and out to submission to agents before November.
This month, I’m also starting to revise the very first Advent story, so it can be done as a novel. I haven’t decided if I’m going to self-publish the Advent stories, or if I’m going to sub them as well. I figure once I get them revised, I’ll decide.
My goals for this year are pretty lofty. I plan on subbing at least three projects to agents/editors, writing and/or publishing 12 short stories and writing four new projects. Those include the next Pendragon novella, and the next Advent story.
2014 is going to be MY year. Be sure about it.
