As you can see, I’ve decided to overhaul the site—hopefully a thumbs up if you like orange!—and this is the first of a new series of blogs, with all my previous offerings now consigned to the “archive” tab.
I’m intending to focus more on my BearManor Media books, and although I’ve retained the reviews of all my self-published books, they are now neatly gathered together on one single page. The tab containing photos of friends with books is still here—waiting patiently for any newcomers (you still know who you are!) and I’ve kept the page about some sporting exploits from yesteryear, mainly because my left hip is in a lot of pain at the moment, and I’m trying desperately to remember a time when I was even reasonably athletic.
The need for replacement joints is sadly inevitable—albeit not imminent—but I’m hoping there’ll be a way of better managing the pain, because every step hurts at the moment and a 100 mile-a-day drive to work certainly isn’t going to make things any better. That said, with the announcement last Monday of two layers of management being removed as part of our ongoing restructure, I might not have the drive for too much longer! And yes, the CV has been updated—looks quite good . . . I’d employ me!!
Work on the Marie Prevost bio is back on track—sincere thanks to everyone who left such positive messages in response to the inaccurate and actually quite upsetting comments made on another blog page. The fact remains that however my research is perceived, I believe that I can write—writers surely don’t get offered contracts purely on the basis of an interesting subject?!
Finally, I’m really excited to receive the first copies of Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman—fingers crossed the reviews will be good and the book will prove popular. I’ll post a photo when the books arrive, but for now it’s time to hobble to the kitchen for my Sunday morning cornflakes.
Until next time!
