Those of you who are in my inner circle know that I keep very busy, usually with 7-8 projects on the go at any one time. Usually, those projects are not my own but those of whom I publish. Sometimes some of them are mine.
This year has been a hectic year, namely running from around July through September and into October in which I worked like a mad man, trying to get everything done for the C4 Comic Con. As a result, I burnt myself out and November was a hard month for me workwise. I’m anything but a lazy guy and in November I felt kind of empty inside, my drive and passion for what I do still there, but the desire to carry it out was muted. I was tired all the time. No matter how much sleep I got, it wasn’t enough. Something broke internally during the July – Sept. marathon and November was the month I paid the price for it.
Anyway, December was much more productive, and as we head into 2012, I’ve been thinking about what the beginning of the New Year will look like for me, both for my personal work and those that I publish. That said, I’m eager to get going, but am taking a Christmas break before getting back into the swing of things, ensuring I’m recharged to the max before going hardcore again.
As a starting point, I want to get back into daily blogging. I really enjoyed posting something daily for you guys and plan on getting back into that starting the New Year. Likewise, Zomtropolis will resume and will conclude. Free installments will be on Fridays like before. Then the book will be bigtime edited and prepped for publication. I’m still hoping to keep the book online for free once it’s done, whether as chapter-by-chapter like it is now, or a simple eBook download in a multitude of formats.
Also coming–I promise–will be the new Axiom-man book. I felt like a goon at C4 this year because I didn’t have a new Axiom-man story for the fans despite aiming to. Sure, I published a few new books this year, but Axiom-man is overdue for one–the last one, The Dead Land, was in 2008–so I need to get the latest adventure out before June 2012. I have to.
I also am going to wrap up The Undead World Trilogy.
Those aforementioned books are priority in 2012. Anything above and beyond that is bonus.
This is a little of what you can expect from me in the New Year.
In the meantime, Happy New Years, everyone. Hope it’s a good one. Stay safe. God bless.
