Well, the end of the year is almost upon us, and while I didn’t accomplish everything I set out to do, I’m still happy with how things went for the first year of this site.
I’ve made some great friends, got to share some stories (both here and on Wattpad), and even got feedback on some of my work (some of it positive, some of it negative, ALL of it constructive).
I’d like to thank everyone who’s been reading my work and following this blog. I appreciate all your support and look forward to entertaining you more in 2018.
In the meantime, while I sadly don’t have the next chapter of ‘FROM THE SHADOWS’ ready yet, I thought I’d leave these three links as something of a compensation.
The Sofa in The Lake by Jennifer Hilty: This is fantasy story that starts with, of all things, a mysterious sofa found floating in a lake. From there, the tale goes in quite a few bizarre directions. It’s a quick read, and most important of all, it’s fun.
Life for Life by L.A. Smith: This is another fantasy story, much darker (and shorter) than the one above but no-less-enjoyable. In it, a widow and an ogre join forces to find a missing child, each for very, VERY different reasons.
How To Write A Book in Three Days: Here’s a non-fiction piece I found just this afternoon. I always enjoy reading tips from published authors, whether I’ve read their works or not, and in this page, Mr. Tim Dedopulos shares writing advice from not one but TWO incredibly prolific writers, Michael Moorcock (‘Elric’) and the late Lester Dent (‘Doc Savage’). For anybody out there who, like me, wants to become a novelist, I heartily recommend checking it out.
I hope you all enjoy these as much as I did, and, even more importantly, I hope you all have a great New Year’s.
