I Think It's Gonna Be a Happy New Year

(with apologies to RENT)

2014 was a very good year.

My writing life continued to go well. I self-published a flash fiction collection in January, went to Clarion West in the summer, signed a literary agent in July, and started trying to sell my first novel.

Also? I am now an Associate Member of SFWA. I can't even tell you how amazing that feels. Top of the world, ma!

I continued to be involved with various puzzle hunt events. Puzzled Pint expanded to twelve cities in three different countries, DeeAnn and I ran T.I.M.E. QUEST on JoCo Cruise Crazy 4 and at GameStorm 16, we helped our friends in Portland run DASH 6, and many of us participated in the 8th annual Game Control Summit.

DeeAnn and I also recorded twelve podcast interviews with awesome women who make puzzle games.

Both our cats are doing well, as is Food Robot.

I got to see the second NASA rocket launch of my life in December, and we're traveling to our first PAX South and our fifth JoCo Cruise in just a few weeks.

2015 is looking pretty great so far. Some exciting new things are in the works, and I'll say more about them when I can!

Sounds like a fantastic year! I didn't know you were shopping around a first novel already, on top of everything else you were achieving. Here's to an even brighter 2015!

Thanks John! I guess I should also mention that I've been reading slush for Urban Fantasy Magazine, which has been very educational. :)
