Books, Birthdays and Blog Stuff

First, double congratulations to Roger. His third book, A Vengeful Longing was officially released yesterday and it is his birthday on Sunday.

And I’ve read some marvellous articles and such on writing/blogging/reading this week – all well worth a look. Here, Lisa Glass writes about book review blogs; here Susan Hill talks about blogging and here Emma King-Farlow writes about the art of critiques. (Also really cool to see the terrific Leading the Dance reviewed in The Short Review , though I’d disagree with what the reviewer said about its cover – I think the covers for both editions I’ve seen have looked very well.)


As for me, I’m still writing.

    Wow, thanks for the mention, Nik – I’m incredibly flattered by the company you’ve got me keeping! I’ve just read Susan Hill’s interview – extremely interesting stuff – and am about to start on Lisa’s article, which looks set to be equally thought-provoking.I hope the writing is going well. Congrats on the poems over on Shine – they were both great and I loved the extra snippets about the motivation behind each of them!Emma x
