Happy new year everybody! It’s taken me until 2 January to write a New Years’ post. I am trying to take a holiday.
I need one. Last year consisted of a succession of hammer blows for myself and family, coalescing to make one of the worst years since 1984.
As for 2016? The unknown stretches out ahead. A blank canvas – one to be moulded.
I’ve got a lot going on in my writing world. The Endless Worlds Vol 1 compilation will be issued in print and e-book format in a few months – new cover artwork included. I am also hopeful that my older military titles – reissued last year on Kindle – will be made available in print. And I have a variety of writing projects which I hope to bring to fruition, not just continuing to push for re-release of the best highlights of my back-list, but exploring some new and exciting directions for the future.
On this blog, look for more of the usual science stuff, my story-writing challenge will pick up in a couple of weeks, I’ve lined up various comments about stuff that interests me which I hope you’ll join in discussing. This is a centenary year for all sorts of First World War adventures – especially New Zealand – and I will be covering off some of those as they come up.
WordPress sent me an email telling me I had so many blog visitors last year they could fill an Olympic swimming pool 2386 times over, or some such number. For my own part, I calculate that if every blog visitor I had were lined up, head-to-toe, they’d stretch a third of the way to the Moon, or some such distance. (Like all physics questions this also requires me to assume an average height and ignore the fact that a percentage will be the same people, while other visits were clearly automated.)
Silliness aside, I’m grateful to all my readers – thank you for your support of my little enterprise in this corner of the blog-o-sphere! And I’ll look forward to some great discussions coming up.
Watch this space.
