2016 – My Year In Review

2016 shaped up to be my best year (professionally) to date. I met several career goals, and move into 2017 in a strong position.

This year I:

Was published by Spectral Press

Secured a publishing contract with Crystal Lake Publishing

Acquired the services of two agents

Completed two novels

Completed a collection of shorts

Appeared as a finalist in two playwriting competitions

Had several plays published and their performance rights made available for purchase

Delivered a series of workshops at my former primary school

Supported a local artist in her debut exhibition

Saw “Beige – the short”, completed and premiered

Got involved in The City of Culture bid

Released my third collection “Neverlight”

Wrote my first piece for “The Sentinel”

Appeared on BBC Radio Stoke and 6 Towns Radio

Forged links locally and nationally/internationally through my work.
Looking back at that list, I’ve achieved a heck of a lot…but there’s more to come.

In 2017, I aim to:

Appear at my local literary festival

Establish myself as one of the areas leading authors of Dark Fiction

Secure releases for “The Underclass” and “The Tainted Isle”

Appear at more conventions/festivals nationwide

Place more of my work on stage

2016 was a phenomenal year for me, and marks the end of my fourth year writing. 2017 promises to be even more fruitful! I do hope you will join me on my journey!

Until then, all the best for Christmas and the New Year!
