You know how sometimes you think something’s going to take way longer than it actually does? You know how you feel when you’ve waited your whole life for something, and then it finally comes? That’s how I feel today. I have some epic news.
Broken Patterns is coming out on December 16.
Yes, if you follow me on social media, you already know that. But not all of you do, so there you have it. I’ll be providing links as soon as I get them.
I wanted to tell you all about my awesome publisher, Solstice Press. They’ve been so awesome through this whole process. I loved my editor, loved everyone I worked with on this. It’s so weird actually having someone to work with, after going it alone for Seeming.
Please, don’t think this was a quick process. Broken Patterns took me years to write, polish and prepare. Even with that it took months to go through edits and get everything prepared. It’s very much been like caring for a fruit tree for years and years. Now, it’s ready to bear fruit.
Here’s the thing, though. These two books, Broken Patterns and Seeming, they’ve been two bright spots in what has otherwise been a really dark year. But they aren’t the only good things to come out of this year. Here’s a list of things that happened that were really great in 2016, that kind of got overshadowed by the bad.
- Suicide Squad.
- Star Trek, Beyond.
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
- Fantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them.
- I went to my first Penguin’s game.
- Two of my friends had babies.
- One of my friends got engaged.
- I ended up not having a serious heart condition.
- I finally signed up for the Y like I’ve been meaning to.
- Penguins won the Stanly Cup.
- Three of my friends bought their first houses.
- I finally signed the kids up for football.
- Finding Dory
- The Secret Life of Pets.
- New M&M flavors.
I need some help from you all, now. What happened this year that was good? What made your life or the world in general, a better place this year?
And don’t forget to get your copy of Broken Patterns on December 16th!
