A New Year

Well, the winter break is over and I’ve been back at school for a school week.  It’s been a pretty good past few weeks.  More importantly for me, it’s been a good year for me, both with regards to my writing, and my day job as a teacher.

I don’t do New Years resolutions, but I keep a schedule of my writing and each year I up my goal by a bit.  I’ve done that again this year, as planned.  Last year, I managed to keep up pretty easily.  I’ve spent much more time selling myself than I did the previous year, and consequently ( I suspect) I’ve sold about 50% more books in 2015, than I did in 2014.  I published two books in 2015– Astrid Maxxim and her Hypersonic Spaceplane back in January, and The Price of Magic in December.  I also finished Astrid Maxxim and the Electric Racecar Challenge, which goes on sale January 29th and is my 25th book.

Over winter break, I worked furiously on my new robot novel.  Right now, it’s Cool Patience.  It was A Great Deal of Patience.  Who knows what the final title will be?  I finished two chapters though, so according to the outline, I’m about 1/10 of the way done.

Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous 2016!

    • Thanks Paul, And to you and yours too.
      The truth of the matter is that writing is my rest. I find it very relaxing. Even if I don’t write much on a particular day, I do a few sentences or a paragraph as I wind down after work.

      • Thanks Wesley.
        I must agree. Iv been doing a bit of writing too, obviously nothing in your league, just my version of growing up in Liverpool with some magic thrown in to amuse me, lol.
