Happy New Year everyone! My God, I can't believe it is 2010. It feels like only a few years ago I was in Edinburgh celebrating the year 2000. The years just go by so fast these days.
This past year has been a bit of a strange one for me. Being in Spain we've had our ups and downs, but I do believe in not looking back and that everything happens for a reason. After all, if we hadn't moved out here then Alone would never have been written and I would never have met all the lovely people at Vamplit.
Goals for this year are all based around writing (no surprise there then!). I hope to have another two novels published this year - The Dark Road, which should be out May 1st, and then hopefully Buried will be out a little while after. Career-wise things have certainly moved on in the last year and hopefully this is just the start of bigger things to come. I also hope to start on a new novel which has been forming in my head for the past few months, though that won't be until Buried is done and dusted.
I've also got big plans for my blog. If we end up back in the UK then I will have access to English books and movies (Thank God! I have missed you old friends...) and so plan to start doing reviews, competitions, etc. There is also another blogging project in the pipeline...
Phew! When its all written down it does seem a little ambitious. Of course, I also have to fit having another baby in there somewhere as well.
All in all I think 2010 will be a good one - if nothing else it just has a good ring to it! I imagine years ago sci-fi writers used this year to imagine we were all living on some foreign planet, or the end of the world had happened. Obviously neither are true, but even so I have a feeling it will be an eventful year.
