2012 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

I keep seeing these posts all over, so I thought I’d add to it myself.  It’s been a crappy and good year personally, and a great year book-wise.  In May we lost our little daughter Melody at 5 weeks old to an infection similar to meningitis; she was 26+6 weeks when she was born and she was a little bundle of joy.  We still can’t look at her memory box, donated by loads of Julie’s great online friends.  We’ve had some problems support-wise from certain people, and I’m not going into that yet.

Book-wise, I’ve published Recon One-Five, Ghosts of Earth, the two Preludes, as well as the ongoing flash fiction series Tales of the Nineteen Galaxies right here on this blog.  I’ve found a tonne of new friends through writing, and completed Nanowrimo for a second time, resulting in the crime thriller The Case of the Empty Killer.  I’ve also finished The Package, a short novel very close to my heart.

So now we’re having another baby, a girl actually.  We’re scared shitless, but we’re excited as well.  And no, nothing will ever replace Melody.

Happy Hogmanay people!

See you next year!

Wookiee out.
