In an effort to write again, and to spread myself about a bit (I’m told this is a must for generating interest in one’s work) – internetly speaking – I’ve decided to resume blogging; but only in the sphere of poetry, stories, art and spirituality. I may offer the odd review or opinion piece, but essentially I want to keep out of controversial matters and focus on my literary output. Such as it is.
My aim for 2017 is to produce at least two short stories per month, to be published first here, and to keep my friends and readers updated on where I am with my novel Anselm.
Anselm is set in an America of the near future that is deeply, and quite literally, divided. It follows Anselm’s rise to political dominance and ultimately destruction. Along the way there are gay love affairs, human sacrifices, cats, mystical experiences, torture, and resurrections. I can’t tell you much else right now, because I never know what my characters are going to do until they start doing it.
So, I hope you will all keep in touch. I welcome positive or constructively critical feedback on all my work, and hope that you enjoy reading it – and get something worthwhile from that reading – as much as I have pleasure (and sweat and tears and throwing things) in writing it.
