Rest of the Year

Week 40 already? Yikes!  There is so much to do before the end of the year.

I had a great discussion with my actor cousin Masa Yamaguchi on Sunday. (He's the guy who fights Hugh Jackman on the top of the train in the Wolverine - here's the scene).

Masa is developing an idea for a film, and wants to collaborate on writing what will be the “book of the film.” This could throw the writing schedule for the rest of the year into chaos – in a good way.

So far, the plan for the last three months of the year is:

  • Finish I Agree and 1,000 Views â€“ publish as Live-Fiction stand-alones.
  • Publish Se7en Deadlies in ebook and print. Seven stories from the Live-Fiction series, each one exploring one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Write Wrong Number â€“ Live-Fiction #13.
  • Guys Can Read, Warm Honey and Nanna’s Cooking Tips in print.
  • Publish The Hacker Pack â€“ 5 stories exploring the themes of computer hacking.
  • Start “Dad’s Cricket Comeback Diary“, a Diary of the 17th Man spin-off project.
  • And maybe, researching and writing Project X with Masa.

That will keep me busy!

New Release
