Hello.

Ah, my poor neglected blog. How I have ignored you. Once you were the apple of my eye (okay, not really — the name of this blog is what it is, after all), but then along came Twitter and suddenly you seemed somewhat clunky and... unwieldy...

P.G. Wodehouse once said: "I believe there are only two ways of writing a novel. One is mine, making the thing a sort of musical comedy without music and ignoring real life altogether; the other is going right down deep into life, and not caring a damn."
As I write my own Dunces Anonymous books, I... Read more of this blog post »

No, no, not the release of the second part of PEGASUS. Sorry.


But I see, via Fantasy Book Cafe, that eight of her titles are being reissued as ebooks.


Apparently PEGASUS is not one of the eight. That’s not surprising, I guess. But it’s good to see many of her titles hitting the virtual shelves.

I have blogged less this month than I think I ever have. This is because I was first making fudge and then making a Captain America costume. Most of the fudge efforts have already been consumed (possibly my favourite comment: “It tastes like poetry.”), and the costume is now done.
