Welcome to Year 40, Day 1

So, it's Sunday afternoon of my thirty-ninth birthday! I did all my celebrating last night, and a great time was had by all. Now it's just an afternoon of watching movies and resting up before I jump into the final year of my thirties. I have many possible plans for this year, and I've spent the last week or so wildly swinging back and forth between my options. I think I should probably just settle on one, maybe two of them and throw all my energy in that direction. It's just a matter of deciding which ones to concentrate on. A large part of that decision is outside my hands, and depends on the decisions of other folks who I don't control or even influence. So there is some degree of wait and see, which always drives me a little nuts. But hey, there have been developments that I don't need to be so vague about. In great and exciting news, a small press publisher has picked up my Cthulhu novel and is going to put out a fancy, limited edition hardback later this year, which is amazing and awesome. More details later, but it means I've stopped selling the self published version, so now those are collectors items too! In that vein, I'm going to spend the next week or so finishing up a Lovecraftian short story for the second Black Wings anthology. I'm really in love with my idea for the story, but it has taken a little more finessing and revising to get it to all come together the right way. After that, it's all about getting The Berlin Project figured out and finished. I'm still uncertain what form that's going to take, but it'll be different, that's for sure. And then... I'm not sure what happens then. I have no idea. Well, I've got tons of ideas, it's just picking one that's so problematic.

40 isn't so bad Rick, 45 is when you realise your life is definitely on the slippery slope. Glad to hear about the Cthulhu hardback, it beats me why the Geek Mafia trilogy didn't go bigger.
