My 2015 in review.
When you get older and the year comes to an end you are left to wonder where the time went and worry about just how little was accomplished. It’s easy to remember all the bad things that had happened and the opportunities lost for whatever reason. However, if you stack the good stuff together, binge on them like missed episodes of a favorite television show, you might get a different perspective of what has happened in a short 365 days. And so, I present some of the more memorable events of my 2015: Read and edited for Second Contacts, the latest anthology from Bundoran Press and my first attempt at being an editor and not just a writer… Completed my courses at Durham College… …graduating with honours… Made these silly little movie for the Bundoran Press YouTube channel… Sent my oldest daughter off to college, a bittersweet moment as you can guess… Held a successful book launch for Second Contacts… Started a new job working for Onstar. Technically, it’s Minacs which Onstar outsources, but...yeah, I’m the voice who talks to you when you push that big blue button… Gave my first interview for an upcoming issue of On Spec magazine which was very cool. Hopefully they are actually able to use some of what I said, I tend to ramble. And, oh yeah, had stories published in these magazines… All in all not a bad year. Next promises to be almost as interesting with a new anthology coming up for Bundoran Press called Lazurus Risen, yet another story coming out in an upcoming On Spec, and who knows what other surprises. So Happy New Year to you and your respective loved ones. Hope your binging was as good if not better than mine.
