2019 Year in Review!

It's been good, but some changes had to be made.
In 2019, I had articles published in 32 physical issues of magazines and newspapers. I also write for a couple of websites, and my latest book, The SNES Omnibus Vol. 2 was published. I'm proud of my work, but this is down significantly from 2017 and 2018, where combined I had articles published in more than 160 issues (80+ each for both of those years). The primary reason for the downturn is that the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has for the most part stopped publishing entertainment-related articles from freelancers. In addition, several magazines I used to write for went under. Also, I've started a graveyard shift job (unrelated to writing) so our family can have a good, affordable healthcare plan.
Changing with the times and the new economy, I've started a Patreon page for fans of my work who are interested in reading exclusive articles and my monthly column. Patrons also get access to exclusive videos, behind-the-scenes photos, behind-the-scenes information, advance chapters of my books, my office archives, updates on my work in progress, personal updates, unpublished work, and more. For as little as a buck a month, you can join. Check it out here:
Thanks for your support, and have a happy 2020!
