As far as writing went, 2010 proved a very good year for me. Late in December my horror short story “When Gymkhana Smiles” was accepted for future publication by Fantastic Horror, an online short story site. I couldn’t have received better news. Also in December, The Cowboy’s Baby came out at blurb.com as a paperback book. It looks just great. It was published as a Kindle book on Amazon.com in July and looks good there too. And I just finished the 80,000-word first draft of my next novel, Arroyo, a pulp adventure Western with horror aspects. That’s a lot of writing for me.
Either with this blog or the next I will showcase the paperback The Cowboy’s Baby in a separate section with a link for purchase. But it’s pretty easy to look up. Blog.com/then bookstore/then literature and fiction/then The Cowboy’s Baby. Check it out on Amazon.com for Kindle too, also easy to find under Kindle/then ebooks/then The Cowboy’s Babyby Gretchen Lee Rix.
I’ll let you know when my short story is out.
I’m going to take a month off from writing fiction (probably a mistake but I’m doing it anyhow). Then I’ll begin the process of revising Arroyo. And I think I’ll write a new short story.
Best wishes for all of you.
