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!
