I noticed today that it’s been a year since I first established this site. Wow, a year! I started scribbling my thoughts on writing and publishing in June 2012, shortly after I received the publication date for “Thief of Futures,” my first pro-rate story to become available (it was actually my third pro-rate sale, but the first to come out). Until then, I had resisted creating an online presence, primarily because I wasn’t interested in doing it for personal and time reason, but I figured it was time to bite the proverbial bullet. A lot of readers were going to see “Thief of Future,” and I wanted them to be able to find me and my work online. It simply made sense from the business perspective.
In the last year I have made nearly 200 posts on a variety of topics. I’ve celebrated nearly fifteen short story sales and joining the Science Fiction Writers of America, made contact with writers I never would have found otherwise, received fan mail (which is still surreal to me) as well as perplexed, WTF mail, been invited to submit stories to new publications, and learned much about the craft and business of writing. Overall, it’s been a good year, and this site has been integral to it all. So thank you for visiting and please come back again soon.
