I Know I shouldn’t Moan

but this weather, really! A bit of a reprieve, at night maybe??

So other than moaning about being too hot I’ve been working, lots and I am ALMOST up to date. Hu-bloody-rrah! And about time too. It’s good because it means that I’ll be able to concentrate on new projects with a clearer, less cluttered, mind. And with my mind as it is, that is a good thing.
Very pleased that I’m an honoree in the Binnacle’s Ultra Short competition, sponsored by the University of Maine. I’ve just finished proofing my story for inclusion in their anthology.
And (can’t believe I’ve not mentioned this before, my mind and all that…) but Vanessa Gebbie’s, Words From a Glass Bubble is a wonderful book – seriously good (and published by Salt, go on, just one book).
And lastly, I’m rather chuffed to be able to announce some that I’ve lined up some rather exciting interviews with some rather special authors for the blog. Watch this space.

    Ooh, lovely! Well done! I'm in the Binnacle too – as is a member of my writing class, so we're definitely chuffed! It's Veronica's first ever publication so I'm so pleased I pushed her to submit. I'm soooo cruel to them!!!:))Axxx

    I know I shouldn't moan either, but this heat is crazy! The problem with England is that there's no aircon… I tried to stand in the freezer section of the supermarket but they made me move on :)Congrats to all the Binnacle honorees, how lovely, especially about Veronica's first publication, Anne! And yes, I think I know the winner too…. I echo Nik: Buy Words from a Glass Bubble. Out now in paperback. Coming to a shop near you soon, very soon, it is hoped.
