2017: The Year Ahead - Projects

Write on.

Greetings, dear readers, listeners, watchers, and lurkers. It's February, and it's time to share my goals for this year.

I've essentially scheduled things so that I'll be releasing about a project per month. This would be a crazy schedule if I were working on everything from scratch, but most of these projects are somewhere between 75%-90% complete already. I just need to finish them off. So, the year looks like this (God, Random Chance, or Programmer spares me).

January - The Nosleep Live Tours 

This consists of four scripts I've been commissioned to write for The Nosleep Podcast, easily one of the best horror fiction podcasts I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. There's a live tour going on in February and March across the USA, and the extremely talented cast will be treading the boards performing one of these four audio plays each night (16 shows in all), as well as narrating some stories from other writers and doing a Q&A. I finished these at the beginning of February.

Status: Complete

February - From a Campfire's Embers...

This is a series of six horror stories I'm writing to be broadcast via the Ghastly Tales Podcast. I piloted the idea a couple of years ago by writing and narrating The Whispering Woods. A special seventh episode is in the works which will be a 360 short film set at a campfire. The stories range from 1500 to 3000 words in length. There will be a book version of these stories so that they can be told around a campfire. The book may or may not release this year, though.

Status: 4 out of 6 stories complete.
