So, I took some hard hits in 2013. Truth be told, I have been suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune since 2009, but it all came to a head with my divorce last year. Following the divorce, I found it impossible to write for many months. This is behind me now. I am now armed with the love of a good woman and my slave-driving muse has returned. In other words: "I'm Back!"
I have two collections headed your way this year: Horrible Gods: The Little Black Book of Atheist Horror Stories coming soon from Sinister Grin Books and a very special new collection called Something Terrible featuring a very special collaborator. Both projects are very near and dear to me. I am truly excited to see them in print. And what about novels?
This year I will finally finish Miles of Hell. I have no publisher lined up for it yet. But my main goal is to get it completed. Still hoping for a mass-market deal for this one.
I also have plans for my own unique spin on the redneck horror/ serial killer in the woods story. Here's the catch, there are no mutant rednecks in it and I am debating if there will even be woods. I was going to write this as a novella, but I have an idea for it that will probably only work as a longer piece. This is one that will require a lot of research and maybe even some travel, depending upon whether or not I decide to go with the location I have in mind.
Anyway, I'm writing. I'm in love. I'm about to purchase a new house. If all goes well, I will be moving into this little fixer-upper next weekend. I am now working out as often as I like and have my pre-marriage body back, for the most part. I can finally, after nearly five years of struggling and suffering, say that life is pretty good.
