What can we say about 2020? Well, to quote my favourite self-published author*…
Of course, the Coronavirus pandemic has changed – and will continue to change – Everything As We Know It. But I’m not going to talk about that here today; you can read more about that…
Well, pretty much everywhere, as it turns out.
As I look back over the year here at HTWGS.com, I see there were a few wins…
- I was really pleased to bring you EXCLUSIVE interviews with game show hosts Mark Humphries and Ian Rogerson, and the WINNER of Australian Survivor; Pia Miranda!
- There were my patented-How-To-Win-Game-Shows-reminiscences about my time behind the scenes on Shafted,
- I reviewed the ITV miniseries Quiz,
- We had another great guest post from Ryan Vickers,
- And a brilliant one from a new friend of the site (and Hard Quiz champion!) Stephen Scott,
- I recommended a couple of podcasts I thought you might find interesting,
- as well as a great Canadian documentary.
- And somewhere in there, I also managed to raise a little bit of money for charity.
What I DIDN’T do in 2020 was finish my second, more autobiographical HowToWinGameShows.com eBook: Tales From The Shiny Floor. I’m so sorry about that. I know I promised it ages ago. Next year, for sure.
I’m afraid that this year, all my authoring and self-publishing energy was devoted to getting my first novel Symphony Under Siege out into the world. But now that’s done, and out there, I can turn my attention to delivering on my promise to you.
And speaking of Promise… I hope that, wherever you are, 2021 fulfils its promise to you.
I hope it’s a safer, saner, healthier and kinder year than 2020. In short, I hope that 2021 is better than 2020. (Let’s face it – it couldn’t be much worse…)
But whatever 2021 may bring, I’d just like to take this opportunity now to thank you so much once again for your support of this site, and wish you and yours a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
See you next year!
* Did you know that Charles Dickens actually self-published A Christmas Carol (one of his biggest hits)?
Well, he did. And I’ve always found that fact (along with the fact that he wrote most of his novels in serialised form, publishing the chapters in monthly magazines before officially publishing the full bound volumes) profoundly inspirational.
(Because… you know… that’s what I did.)
