Egad, how time flitters past.

Posted by:

I have not been lazy, honestly, but rather alarmingly busy. Today ( finally) I finish the first draft of the new novel, still botheringly titleless. After which I will let it rest for a spell of about one week before attacking it with gusto and a ferocious edit.

Between now and that I will be at Elecric Picnic, waffling on Saturday about matters female with fellow bloggers from the excellent Anti-Room, and later with my colleagues on a crime ...

No Alibis Book Launch for Requiems for the Departed.

Posted by:

Belfast is really pretty, I cannot believe I had never been. But, as I told anyone who expressed surprise, I am off to Kerry for the first time next month too. Verily I am ashamed of my lack of traveling around this fair isle.
