Looking back on 2011, it was the busiest year I’ve ever had. I wrote and submitted two books (the sequels to Germline), wrote and submitted I don’t know how many short stories, worked a full time job, and found the time to parent. This is why I’m always tired?
Germline, by T.C. McCarthy (Orbit Books)
The Legionnaires, by T.C. McCarthy (Orbit Books)
Private Exploration, by T.C. McCarthy, Nature, Vol 474, 2011
A.I.P., by T.C. McCarthy, Story Quarterly, Issue 45 – not sure if this counts since it came out digitally in 2011, but the print version has not yet been released.
Looking forward to 2012: I’m about 75K words into writing my first literary novel, which is an entirely different beast when it comes to time commitment and word choice, but it’s something I needed to do for myself. The setting is in the deep south. I’m keeping the exact location a secret for now but it’s a place that had special meaning for me as it was the location where I had some of the best times, and one of the worst, and there’s a whole lot of kudzu – I promise.
