I have just noticed that I have passed 1,300 follows – a warm welcome to all!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately… poor health has been an issue (when is it not? 🙂 ), and I am right in the middle of my busiest period in terms of academic writing and marking.

I intend to write a post soon specifically about Terry Pratchett, one of my most beloved authors and who, sadly, passed away this week.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year, and thank everyone who bought a copy of one of my books in 2014. I’ve tallied up and am delighted to report that I have sold more than 250 books since branching out into the world of indie publishing in August!

Ill health has kept me from posting a lot at the moment – I am currently recovering from surgery – but they’ll be plenty more to come from me in 2015, so watch this space!
