December 31st, 2022
2023 is a big year, as far as celebrating my (lack of a) creative career goes.
It marks both 10 years of publishing books (a novella called Them, on April 1st, 2013), and 20 years since I released my first EP under the name The Next Step (Tangled Cords, on July 13th, 2003).
I want to do something special and really dive into all the work that brought me here, so I decided to dedicate one month each to a different wave of my creative output.
This calendar is the Sleeping Kitty Productions 2023 map.
It’s pretty self-explanatory: each of my fiction books has a month dedicated to it, as does my music, with The Next Step featured in May. The first two months are more general: Origins explores where I came from, and Online Writing & Unproduced Work looks at my internet work and the stuff I never released, of which there is a fair and fun amount.
I’m thinking of ways to make it participatory; I want to do giveaways and hopefully stage a few events. If you have any contributions from over the years to share, I would love to see them. If you have any questions or are looking for in-depth answers to anything in particular, send me a letter! Don’t be shy!
Right now, the only new thing officially on the calendar is the release of Brushfire: Wave 2 on July 4th, 2023.
But if you know me, you know there will be surprises at every turn.
Maybe every other turn.
All my love this year, next year, and every year we manage to survive together.
