2011 was a good year. My wife’s business really took off, I had my first professional fiction sale (“Ink and Blood” to Beneath Ceaseless Skies), did my first public reading (at Readercon). and scribbled a whole lot of words for a whole lot of stories and novels. I didn’t get the publishing contract I’ve been working toward, but that just means I haven’t submitted enough awesome stuff to enough publishers. I’ll aim to fix that in 2012.
All of you imaginary friends out in Intertubes land—may you have a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012. Collectively speaking, you’re my virtual water cooler here at the Munchkin Wrangler offices, and hanging out with you helps me stay sane and feel connected. Writing is a lonely job, and stay-at-home parent writers are even more isolated than the average nutjob novelist. Thanks for amusing me, reading my stuff, and/or writing stuff I enjoy reading. See you crazy kids on the other side.
