The year in writing

This year so far I have three short story deadlines and two novel deadlines –

Seven Deadly Swords is in revision so the early months of this year will mainly be spent on that.

Novel # 3 – tentatively entitled “The Certainty of Dust” (more details in a few months time when I’ve finished the planning) will mostly take up the rest of the year.

I’ll also, all things being equal (it IS publishing after all) be in an essay collection which is something I’d like to do more of (take note passing publishers)

My goal for this year is also to get in a magazine (apart from in a review like Sick City Syndrome in Geeky Monkey January) so a short story published in one of the notable specfic mags. Which means writing more short stories.

If you’re a BFS member you’ll have seen my first published story this year – You have reached your destination in the BFS January bulletin. If you’re not a BFS member you can join here:

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here:
