What a year, huh? I don’t know about you guys, but my year’s been crazier than a box of doorknobs. A few periods where I was writing flat out and a hell of a lot more times when real life kicked my ass. This year I finished off a Postgraduate Diploma in Forensic Science. Next year, Masters degree. Jebus save me.
I debuted my noir-writing Harry St. John pen name this year. There’ll be more from Harry in 2014. I’ve got several short stories full of nasty people doing nasty things all lined up. If you’re a sicko like me, maybe you’ll enjoy them.
Miles Franco also had a new adventure this year in the second book in his hardboiled urban fantasy series. I don’t know if I’ll manage to get the next Miles book out in 2014, but I’ll try my damndest.
So what else is on the cards from me for 2014? I’ve got a couple of projects on the go, including one I’m particularly excited about. Those of you who read this blog might know I’m a big fan of Japanese giant monster (aka Kaiju) movies like Godzilla and Gamera. Well, I’m finally writing a book that’s been knocking around inside my head for a while now. Think Sam Spade meets Godzilla. With a big of luck and elbow grease, my first (currently untitled) Kaiju novel will see publication in 2014. Get hyped!
Wherever you are in the world, have a fantastic holiday season. Read some books, eat and drink too much, and embarrass yourself with those family members that you only ever see at Christmas because they’re a little bit weird.
Rock on, and I’ll see you all in the New Year!
