Writing Update: February 2016

Welcome to the first of my bi-monthly writing updates for 2016. I have a lot going on with my writing this year, so these updates will be a way for me to share news on forthcoming releases and current projects for those of you who don't see the single-item updates on social media.

We are at the one-year mark since I self-published some of my mainstream (MF) work. I've not had huge success with it and found it expensive, so at this stage I don't intend to self-publish much (if anything) in the future. That doesn't mean I'll stop writing MF; I'll simply look for a traditional publisher instead.

At present, my Gothic novel is with a beta reader. I hope to have a final draft ready for submission by mid-year. In addition, I have started work on some short stories for anthology calls and will be completing and submitting those in the coming months, with the intention of writing more later in the year if any calls grab my attention.

I already have a few MM works contracted for publication in 2016: two novellas, a short story collection, and several shorts in anthologies. Other shorts are currently with publishers, under consideration. Once I finish current MF projects, I will commence a new MM novella.
