Er, me. I have now finished and published Stronghold: Exodus, revised and updated for UK.

I hope I'm not breaking any rules, but here is a link to my page http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/waycyber. As you will see, The Land of Grimney gets a mention and a link.

I am going to compile books of my short stories and poems in the near future.

No, not at all, we encourage people to promote their creative skills and work in Grimney. Once I have more time, I will read your book. Thanks for the link, and for your creative character.

Sorry for my absence lately, but I'm back now. I have had to do some work on my novel - last minute things like copyright page and so on. I am expecting the final proof within the next couple of days.

Three local libraries have agreed to accept copies. Also, two branches of a store (that I won't name, but rhymes with Daughterstones), has agreed to stock some on a sale-or-return basis. WH "Jones" says I must speak with their manager.

In the meantime, I am assembling my shaggy dog stories and my poems into books.

In addition, I am doing more work on the prequel, Stronghold: Genesis.

I am also trying top learn Polish.

And I still haven't started my guitar lessons.

Well, I have my Author business cards now, I am waiting to hear from Waterstone's about the contract.

And I am doing another most important job.

Gathering my receipts and invoices.

My computer, website, editing software and so on - tax deductible.

Anything I do which is involved with my writing - tax deductible.

Well, silly not to, really, isn't it?

I thought I would keep you posted on the progress of my book.

So far, sales are 40+. Not too bad.

I have submitted a copy to the British Library, and 3 copies to local libraries, and they are now available for borrowing.

Still no word from Waterstone's, but the new edition is now available on Amazon (don't buy the old one).

Despite sending them free copies, none of the local radio stations or newspapers have contacted me.

I have had a number of personal sales, and may make one or two more next Friday.
