2013 In Review

20130609-173120.jpgIt’s been another productive year for me as a professional writer — by my count, I was published six times (not counting reissues of various works). That’s actually one publication more than I had in 2012… so that puts some pressure on for 2014 😉

Here’s what I had published this year:

The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Three: Eidolon – This one furthered the big meta-storyline that’s running through books 2-4 and introduces Darkling and Eidolon, two characters that I’m very proud of. Darkling is probably the closest I’ll ever get to writing The Shadow so I had a blast handling him.

The Adventures of Gravedigger – Charity Grace joined my pulp adventure universe this year and I’ve been thrilled with the response to her first novel. Featuring my all-time favorite George Sellas cover, Gravedigger quickly cemented her spot as the third “big hero” in my universe and I fell in love with her and the supporting cast.

The Avenger: Roaring Heart of the Crucible – Writing The Avenger once was a dream come true… to do it a second time?! Amazing! Even better, I got to make it a sequel to my 2011 story. I was very happy with how it turned out.

Strange Trails – My first work for Mechanoid Press. I introduced a new heroine here and had a good time with the experience. It’s odd that I don’t like westerns but I’ve actually written a handful of them now.

Shadowman: The Red Sash – My first foray into Amazon’s Kindle Worlds program, this allowed me the chance to write Shadowman. I managed to do a very pulp-heavy story for it and I like to think it’s a fun little adventure.

Liberty Girl – Adapting a graphic novel to prose was a new experience for me but it was also one of the most rewarding. I enjoyed handling The Liberty Girl and response has been very strong to the finished product.

If you add in all the re-issued works, I had something being published almost every month: Rook Volume Two, Rabbit Heart, the new Single Shot releases from Pro Se, etc.

Next year should bring new volumes for Lazarus Gray and Gravedigger, plus a few other stories and books that should be coming from Moonstone, Pro Se and elsewhere.

None of this would be possible without your support, my friends. Thank you so much.
