I got laid off from the day job 7 years ago yesterday. I’ve been a full-time writer ever since, despite some hairy moments where the smart thing really would have been to get a day job. In that time, I’ve published 16 novels, 3 novellas, a couple dozen short stories, and a 5-issue comic book. It adds up to just shy of two million words published. I have 3 more novels, a collection of Old Races short stories, a couple of non-affiliated short stories and a collection of Walker Papers stories* under contract.
6 years ago tomorrow we settled in Ireland.
It’s been quite the run, hasn’t it? :)
*“No Dominion”, not something contracted to my publishers. But it’s certainly under contract!(x-posted from the essential kit)
