Here I am again. I have been so buy with just....stuff! I have been writing another story and it is finished! Well, except for the editing bit that Alex, my wife, does for me. She has been busy doing a poetry course so I am in the queue for her attention, Anyway, it's written and I like it (I have to say, as usual!). I do like my own stories. It may seem strange but I do enjoy reading them. Must be my really rubbish memory!

About 3/4 of the way through writing it I became overloaded with the writing aspect and had to stop, I was drained. I decided to look for an image for the book cover and found this one. I think it's great and it ties in so well to the story. The book should be completed sometime next week (or before if I ask nicely). Enjoy!

I have been asked by a famous Sherlockian, David Marcum if I will publish all my stories as a rea book. The Julia Moriarty Trilogy is already available as a paperback with MX Publishing so that would leave me with 12 stories . David thinks would just about the ideal number so it is worth a LOT of thought. I may well do this so look out for further news.

The weather here is shocking, strong winds and now we have rain. We had ferries to the UK cancelled last week because of storms in the English Channel. Hey-ho, at least we don't get snow, it's 14 degrees Celcius here but the wind whistling past the door sounds really awful.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
