Yes, I’m Jewish, but my wife celebrates Christmas, and I don’t feel like trying to make my little boy pick between Judah Maccabee and Santa Claus for holiday heroes, so we do both, and now’s the time when things get busy: holiday meals to be cooked, Christmas cookies to be baked, house to be cleaned, presents to be wrapped.
(Though he should totally pick Judah Maccabee as his holiday hero; I mean, what’s cooler: a guerrilla fighter or a fat old guy who slithers down chimneys?)
It’s been an eventful year. Some of the highlights include:
- In March, I wrote my first review for the website Ginger Nuts of Horror.
- In April, my short story Hold On was published at Liberty Island.
- In June, Nev Murray reviewed The Blessed Man and the Witch.
- In August, Adam Howe gave me the honor of blurbing his story Gator Bait.
- In September, my short story How to Fix a Broken World was published at Liberty Island.
- In November, I released the second edition of The Blessed Man and the Witch.
- December was quite busy. Get the Greek, my Kindle Single, made it to #1 in a free category on Amazon; the Beyond Lovecraft Indiegogo campaign I supported made its funding goals (and then some); and I learned that I had been kicked off the website Ginger Nuts of Horror (more on that later).
2016 is shaping up to be a good year, too. I’ll release The Nephilim and the False Prophet in the first quarter of the new year, and I hope to be finished the entire Armageddon trilogy by early 2017 at the latest. I continue to meet new readers and writers, which is great fun, and it’s a joy to watch my son become his own person every day.
Best to all of my readers, both new and familiar.
See you in 2016!
