I've accomplished good things as a writer (and publisher) and a year end review or wrap-up felt in order. This post gives me a chance to look over it all and list a few things. Plus, I'll probably look ahead into 2016 as well. There are things I want to accomplish with the new year. Everybody feels that way when they look back on the shape of the previous twelve months. That's what all this resolution stuff is all about. Personally, I'm not great at setting and keeping resolutions. So I won't go that far. The best thing is to have a few ideas and maybe set some broader challenges.
Anyways, here it goes, my look back at 2015.
Things Published in 2015
I must say I did published or reissued a number of books and stories. I'm going to begin by mentioning the books. I actually brought out five new paperback books, two of them newly published, two paperback editions for novels published only as ebooks originally, and my first published nonfiction book (and my company's second published title).
That's been the focus when I wanted working on other projects strictly for other writers via the publishing company. I've wanted to increase the number of books I can get out of my own work. It's been important to me to maintain this balance. I'm getting busier as a publisher so the balance is harder to meet, but I'm not about to give up. I was a writer before all of this and I mean to stay one for the long haul. I maintain it is one of my best strengths as a publisher. Anyway, here are the books:
Okay now I'll mention the short stories. I started the year but publishing ebook single editions of ten of my short stories. You can find those all on various platforms for various devices.
The list of stories included the following:
1. Death to the Messenger (1/30)
2. The Beast of Mern (1/30)
3. Winds of Fate (1/31)
4. The Traitor (1/31)
5. A Reckoning (2/22)
6. The Prophet's Return (2/22)
7. The Risen Queen (2/22)
8. The Ruling (4/3)
9. Oathsworn (4/3)
10. Midwinter Light (4/3)
So, yeah, that was good. I still have others that haven't been published yet, some that I'd written or revised from early material during the course of the year.
It's a good body of work but now I'm ready to up my game. I want to see how many new books I can finish and ready for publication in 2016. I consider it one of my unofficial challenges in the new year. Other than the second Stormborn book there are other things in the works. So stay tuned for all of that. I might be doing more updates as things develop.
