So, you had grand plans back in January for 2020. How did you do?
Yes, yes, get all the hysterical laughter out. It’s good to purge that from your system. Don’t worry, crying is good for the soul. Helps reset the emotional level. Have a hankie.
Feel better now?
Okay, good, because here comes 2021. And there’s no guarantee it’s going to be any more sane or stable than 2020 was. All the same, failing to plan is planning to fail, so let’s take a deep bracing breath (or a deep bracing draught of medicinal bourbon. Good for what ails you.) And now, let’s make goals for 2021.
Sure, we may break out in civil war. We may fall to authoritarian police state run by Chinese-puppeted politicians with rampant hyperinflation as they print money Zimbabwean-style. But if we merely struggle along in the miserable middle, well, people are still going to want things to read. And escape to interesting places, hope and light and things that warm the soul will probably sell better than post-apovcalyptica, especially when we can see antifa doing its level best to play-act that on our streets in real life.
So keep writing, and releasing.
What are your plans for 2021’s publishing schedule?
