Yeah, net problems, expected to persist for at least a couple of weeks. (Hint to any despot trying to take over world via net – don’t do it from Australia. My marketing campaign is kinda floundering without reliable telephone or net.)
Trying to consider it a useful break to catch up on writing, but I miss Twitter and the baby hippos. Oh yeah, and don’t ask me about Rupertgate, i am totally out of the loop.
The guest post i did for MYOB went very well, by the way – thanks to all my Beloved
Minions Visitors who dropped across to read and comment, it’s good for us all to go travelling every so often. And gosh, the discipline of writing short stuff. *waffles on for hours*
Ha, am totally going to sell some more copies soon – come on people, we’re into double figures! Funny, i never thought i’d be critically acclaimed (at least by readers) and it wouldn’t translate into sales. I am pretending it will be fine, and writing Book 2, while finding typos in Book 1.
Mr Whatsit says patience. I say patience my arse, i’m going to kill something, it will be good publicity. The others, i tell him darkly, will fall into line. Unfortunately, without a decent internet, i can’t generate proper
fear PR so the stupid woman across the road who thinks my yard is her right of way is safe… for now.
Hint – The Birthday Dragon is at Number 6 because it’s excellent. Read the reviews, they say so too.
“If JRR Tolkien, Douglas Adams, Jane Austen and Phillip K Dick were to collaborate on a book, they might write something like this.”
I totally meant to do that. (No, i don’t think i’ll ever get bored with that review. All of them are ravishing, but it’s also v handy for quotes.)
The cool people who do know why Polo Shawcross is so irresistible (and an idiot) are giggling at jokes, discussing his inability to keep his pants on, and demanding to know when Book 2 is out.
In time for Christmas, if i manage to finish it. Plot is fine, book half-written (Book 3 is in same state) but being fleshed out.
Why aren’t you missing Polo Shawcross already? You can read 20% free here, along with those beautiful reviews. And it’s only $4.99 – it’s available on Smashwords (in all e-reader formats), Barnes&Noble, Kobo, and in the Apple store.
If you don’t have an ereader, no excuses (you don’t want me coming round your place and crying on you, do you?) because you can get free Kindle software for the PC or Free Kindle Software for the Mac.
I’ve downloaded the PC version – it’s really very good. Much nicer reading experience on a screen. Now, let’s see if i’m able to post this.
