A Few things

Yikes! I started a full time, full on and fascinating job at the start of August - and have done very little writing since then! The job's good - good team, good work, and a good source of inspiration - but it's taking up much more focus and energy at the moment than I had anticipated. Now that I'm settling in I need to work out some kind of balance.
  Meanwhile, I've just finished reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. It's one of those books that I've always been aware of. I've read reviews of it, watched movies based on it, and heard how good it was. And now I've finally read it, and it's true - it's really good. The writing is excellent and the characterisation impressive. And, as is of vital importance in a horror story, it's pretty creepy.
  And thirdly, I now have a story - A Dark Forest, published in the ebook anthology Extinct Doesn't Mean Forever - available to purchase on its own from Smashwords, Amazon and Barnes & Noble for 99c. These are interesting times for ebook possibilities, and this is a bit of an experiment. So, watch this space.
