It's been a while since I last posted --- life the universe and all that --- getting in the way.
The all that --- being --- I'm selling my boat and have moved into a house.
Have I sold out to convention?
Maybe. Yeah --- perhaps just a bit. I loved living on the river. Lots of great people live there, and I do miss them.
But --- my animals needed a garden and I needed a flush loo!
So after seven months of madly decorating, and buying furniture ( it's amazing the beautiful things you can find in second-hand shops), I am back at my desk and hitting the lap-top keys with a vengeance.
I didn't actually have a desk on the boat or a private place to call my own, where I could write as much as I wanted.
Another plus to being a landlubber. A desk with a proper chair, not a small stool, and a room that I can close the door on.
Oh – yeah and the space. I just gotta talk about the space.
A king sized bed that we can get out of either side. No more climbing over each other when nature calls in the middle of the night.
A kitchen that --- hell --- I won't bore you with the details. You know – you probably live on land too.
If you don't – trust me it's worth a try.
The other reason I haven't been posting lately.
If you have read my stuff in the past, then maybe you have read The Spanky Bottom Consultation.
I originally wrote it as a short story for this blog. In a mad flash of creative inspiration I have decided to turn it into a full novel.
I'm almost finished, and I should have the book ready for publication in the Autumn. The Fall --- if you live over on the other side of the pond.
It's just as rude and bawdy but with a lot more ----- ssshh -----sex.
Coming soon – I've got some wonderful authors lined up with reviews of their books. And several interesting articles that I hope you will all enjoy reading......
Sorry I've been away so long -----
have a great weekend everyone and thanks for reading this post...
