Writing Stats:

I wrote three more Murderbot Diaries novellas this year, Artificial Condition, which will come out in May 2018, Rogue Protocol in August 2018, and Exit Strategy, which isn't scheduled yet. All three together are a total of about 105,000 words. I also wrote a bunch of short fiction for the Raksura Patreon, probably around 15,000 to 18,000 words worth.


This was a really...strange year in a lot of ways, but career-wise, it was very good. I completed the Books of the Raksura series and I was very happy with how The Harbors of the Sun turned out. All Systems Red, my first SF novella, came out and it did really super well, and got lots of great reviews and was listed as one of Amazon's best books of 2017, which was awesome.

And I read a lot of great books by a lot of new and new-to-me authors:
