I’m starting a new chapter (pardon the pun) in my life, and I decided to create a new blog to represent this new start. I have a lot of things on the go at the moment, some of them quiet and some of them out in the open.
Being busy as a writer is great news for the most part. Doing too many things can stretch you a little thin, but with the proper balance I am doing quite well I think. I have 6 short stories set to come out in the next 6 months, with various anthologies, and for that I am very thankful. Writing is a tough gig at times, and it is easy to lose focus. I started a new book a while ago, and am bound and determined to finish it and make it awesome. Some of my blog entries will be about the process I am going through with my book and I will try to share the different stages as I hit them. With any luck it will be over the next few months and not the next few years.
I plan on doing a series of interviews as well, since I did a few on my previous blog and had a blast doing them. So beware. I may end up asking you for an interview, friends! I am excited about doing these again, and hope to start on this in the next couple weeks.
The other exciting news I have is the new publishing company I have created: Woodbridge Press. I have toyed with the idea for a while since I know so many amazing people in the industry. When I came up with an awesome short story collection idea, I decided to invite some great writers to take part, and since I was going to be producing it, I figured now was the time to make the dream a reality. The name was a no-brainer, since I walk by the actual Woodbridge every day with Ginger, my Cocker Spaniel, it just felt right; organic somehow.
I’m really happy to share the news with those of you who didn’t know about the new venture, and I can’t wait to share the product I have lined up in the next year or so. It is going to be amazing, this I guarantee you.
I’ll be creating the Facebook page in weeks to come but you can already follow along on twitter @woodbridgepress so please do so. I am also on instagram Woodbridge Press, with no current content but it will come, so if you are on there, please follow along there too.
The first book is due out early 2016 and is called 13 Rooms: The Haunting of Lake Manor Hotel. 13 stories of guests staying in a haunted hotel by the lake, by 13 great authors. More to come soon…
