Happy New Fear!!!! :-D

Unlucky for some...?

I can’t believe it’s 2013 already! How time flies!

Clichés aside, though, 2012 was definitely a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it one. I hardly feel like I’ve stopped for breath. It has been an amazing year, though, with so many exciting things, and I feel very lucky and very privileged to have experienced all the things I have done. Thanks to everyone who made 2012 so awesome!! I hope you guys all had a great one too.

And what does 2013 have in store? I’m hoping it will be another exciting one. The Fury will rage on both sides of the Atlantic, Furnace is reissued in the UK with brand new covers, I’ve got a US tour in the summer and maybe a trip to Brazil later in the year, our feature film Stagnant will – hopefully – get in front of the cameras, and there’s some more film news too that is all hush hush at the moment, but still massively exciting. Oh, and a new horror action series, but it may be 2014 before this one hits the shelves. So all in all it really will be a Happy New Fear!!

Oh, and there’s Far Cry 3 to play as well…

There are also my New Year’s resolutions, which traditionally have to be broken at some point in January. I make and break the same ones every year, so this year I’m going to try something different. My first resolution is NOT to get fit. And my second is NOT to become a squillionaire. So hopefully I’ll break these resolutions too.

Have you guys got any cool plans or resolutions for the year? Good luck with whatever they are. I hope you all have an amazing 2013 and get everything that you could ever possibly want!

January 1st. It’s just another day, of course, but I do think there’s something special about it. I like starting over, starting fresh. I like the feeling of optimism and excitement that the new year brings. It’s like an extra Christmas, as there are 365 beautiful shiny new days in front of you. Enjoy them, explore them, have fun with them. They’re your days.

Happy New Year everyone!!
