First off, sorry.Â I know I’ve been neglecting my various corners of the internet.Â My plan is to correct this in the coming weeks, but I’m afraid I can’t make any promises.Â Between planning the World Horror Convention and various writing projects, I’m sitting in the slim-to-none category, as far as free time goes.
On Thanksgiving Day, I finished the latest draft of a novel that, while having some horror elements, is largely a crime piece.Â It’s got at least a polish in front of it, but right now it leaves me feeling proud and stuff.Â I really think it’s going to be something special.Â I’m itching to jump back into it sometime in January.
In the meantime, I have a short story to write for an anthology.Â I’ll also be spending much of December rewriting a novel that should be out next April.Â I can’t say much about it other than there are a few hints floating out there and it’s a loose adaptation of a story I’ve already told.Â It’s one folks have been asking for, though!
Also, December will be seeing my annual “Best Of” lists.Â I’m thinking about doing one for movies in addition to my normal books and songs lists, but please don’t hold me to that.
That pretty much takes me through the end of the year.Â 2011 brings a rewrite on a horror novel and theÂ first draft of another horror novel.Â My novella This Little Light of Mine should be available in the early part of the year, and then Focus, a novella I co-wrote with Lee Thomas should also see publication at the end of April.Â Other than that, I’m thinking about recording a record in my garage just for the hell of itÂ (not that I expect it to be any good… best not to be delusional about these things).
And there you go.Â That’s the next few months all laid out for you!
