Freebie story

Watch out for a free story of mine, coming to the Torquere Press Spring Egg Hunt in the next few days!

The story, called Cut and Blow, is a naughty little piece about a haircut - with a difference!

The eggs in the hunt change every day (with free recipes, stories, bits and bobs and coupons for the e-book store) so be sure to check back often.

Oh wow!

I'm gobsmacked., a review site by readers for readers, has just reviewed Roses in December. And they liked it. Rather a lot, actually, since they gave it an A-. :D

Check out the full review for yourselves - you might see why I'm bouncing.

Well well well...

When I wrote Roses in December I was worried that Nat's experiences, and particularly the implied criticism of the care he received from the army, might be a bit over the top. Imagine my surprise (and relief!) to see this article from the BBC today, saying that many traumatised soldiers are going AWOL rather than put up with the lack of care the army provides.

It's rather sad that the situation doesn't seem to have improved any in the 2-3 years since I wrote the book, but I do feel Nat's been vindicated.

My space on MySpace :)

I finally gave in to all the hype and got myself a MySpace page, and had lots of fun and frustration kicking it into shape.

I've based the theme on 'Roses in December' and I'm delighted with the way it's turned out, thanks to a gorgeous layout from pimp-my-profile. Here's the finished article:

I'm in the process of adding friends but it's a slow process because the MySpace Gremlins keep crashing my modem. So if I've missed anyone or you can't wait and want to add me instead *grins* then thank you very much! I'll see you all there.
