Greetings to everyone on the end of 2012 and the eve of 2013. It's been a great year with a lot of things happening in the writing world. I sold ClosetWorld to Aracana Comics, and it should be completed and come out sometime later next year (should make a great Christmas present next year). I finished the first issue of Redo, my independent superhero comic, and I'm still shopping for a home for it. And I was able to have a table at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC, which was fantastic in meeting so many comics and genre lovers.
In my professional life, I just finished a 2 1/2 year stint working at the Joint Special Operations Command, JSOC, in what proved to be one of the most challenging and rewarding assignments I've had. It open a whole new world to me, and introduced me to some of the most talented military professionals I've ever worked with. We've now relocated to Arlington, VA, and I'll spend a little over a year studying Arabic before heading off to be the Air Attache at the US Embassy in Amman, Jordan.
But bar none, the biggest event of 2012 was the birth of my twin boys, now 7 months old. They are a joy and a muse like none other, and it's so amazing to watch them grow before our eyes. They inspire me to do even greater things and dream bigger dreams.
Excited to get into 2013 and move into some new comics and other writing projects. Some have been hinted at here, others have not yet been mentioned. Here's hoping you equally pursue your passions and dreams.
The old year is dead. Long live the new year.
