Today is my birthday! I view birthdays as far more of a marker of renewal than the traditional western New Year. Maybe it’s because my birthday is in the spring? Anyhow, on my birthday five years ago, I’m pretty sure I made promises to myself I haven’t really been able to achieve so far.
Fortunately, technology is now on my side. While I’m not ready to share lots of details, I wanted to at least mention how I plan on spending this year.
This summer I’m going to start releasing a work of fiction on the web, a little bit at a time. It’s a work planned from the ground up to be read in small bites– I think of it as fiction you can read while waiting for the bus, or riding the train. Smartphone transit fiction. (I also plan on releasing it in larger chunks, less often, for those who might prefer it that way.)
What kind of story? Oh, it’s the ‘teenagers fighting monsters’ sort. I know that doesn’t appeal to everybody, but I’ll be doing my best to make it fun and interesting. I’ll be posting teasers and maybe even a book trailer as my launch date approaches, so stay tuned if you’d like to find out more.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope everybody has a great spring. I’ve certainly got a busy one ahead of me…
