Two Years On

December 1st, 2008 • Posted in Random Stuff |

Two years ago today was my first day working as a full-time writer.  Leaving work to write for a living was a big decision, but definitely one of the best I’ve ever made, and through the downs as well as the ups I haven’t regretted it for a moment.  It seems a lot longer than two years ago that I last left Monmouthshire County Council’s dodgy old building (it’s effectively falling down), and looking at the amount I’ve written since then, perhaps there has been a time-warp thingy going on somewhere.  Here’s a rough list:

As well as those novels and novellas I’ve done several short stories, two screenplays (The Everlasting and The Dregs), and plenty of other stuff.  It does make me wonder how the hell I wrote so much when I was working, but the fact that I’m still working just as hard after two years is great.  I’ve still got plenty of work on … and a big THANKS is due to you discerning readers who continue to buy my books!

And on it goes …!  I wrote a novelette this weekend for a US market (sending it to the editor for consideration today), brainstormed a new screenplay with a good friend of mine, and this week it’s back to the Yukon to finish off book one of the Jack London series.

Many more announcements coming soon, including a new short story option.  So please do keep popping by, and in another year I hope the above list will be much, much longer.

    Monmouthshire’s loss is our gain. Congratulations on the anniversary and rest assured as long as you continue to produce the quality of writing we’ve become accustomed to we will continue to buy… and to spread the word. (Sigh) Now I just have to wait on the compilation with “The Reach of Children”. Damn this internet’s slow trek across the Atlantic!

    Congratulations, Tim. I hope you remember me from the old days, way back when in the 1990s with the “Basically Insane” writers’ group? I’ve not been writing for a while, but seeing yours and Gary’s success has inspired me, and I’m going to get writing again.
