Quick News Roundup
I’m still shuffling from doctors to hospital and back again while ingesting various chemicals and being scanned for things. CT scan yesterday, in which they tried to put a cannula in me in three different places and my veins played hide and seek. Back for another day of being sedated on the 4th of November… So, normal life has still not resumed.
On the plus side I had an absolutely gorgeous review of Blessed Isle today:
Now, I can’t recommend this enough. It’s one of those rare stories that is more than the sum of good plot + good characterisation = success. Blessed Isle is more than an experience, it’s a memory and you will live it. This is a love story that will survive centauries. It’s beautiful.
Which can’t be bettered
I am half way through writing Trowchester Blues, at a wordcount of 36K, which means that it seems well within reach to plan to finish it during NaNoWriMo. We have here the ex-cop falling for the not-quite-ex-enough con, both of whom are mature gentlemen in their forties. I remember the mid-life crisis up close and personal, and sometimes it’s nice to write characters who are closer to your own age.
It’s due out on the 5th of November, which is fortunately a day on which I’m not due to be sedated, huzzah! I can’t wait 🙂
Remember remember the 5th of November,
nefarious fairies and plots.
The Queen has her two-bore and she’ll always be sure
she welcomes those goblins with shots.
