The Desolated Orchard, my freestanding novella (or novelette, I suppose) made Tangent Online’s 2016 Recommended Reading List! Yay me, right? Tangent is the venerable sci-fi/fantasy review site, and each year it culls through all of the many, many published genre pieces to find the best of the best. Incidentally, I’ve made the list the last three years running. In 2014, every single novella in The End in All Beginnings made the list. Every. Single. Goddamn. One.
Everyone, with the exception of the pets, has been sick here at Taff Lodge pretty much since Christmas, so…ugh. I managed to finish Part 3 of my work-in-progress The Fearing, with about 100-150 pages to go until the end. Hopefully, by end of January.
Some of the other projects I’ve been hinting at will likely jar loose here soon, and I’ll be able to discuss them. But good things coming in 2017 if you like reading my work.
