What’s Happening…

This is just a short one to let you know I won’t be about much for the next few days.  I’m off back down to Manchester for my dad’s 70th Birthday, to party “mancunian” style.  If I miss some of your posts and don’t leave the usual comments, I will catch up when I am back. (Unless I can grab a few minutes on someone’s laptop while I’m there.)

On the news front.  I got some great news the other day that a short piece of mine has been accepted for the Pill Hill Press.  My piece of flash fiction, A Frozen Winter, has been accepted to appear in their Anthology. 

A Frozen Winter first appeared on Michael J. Solender’s blog, Not From Here, Are You?, so a big thanks to Michael for having me as a guest writer.

Anyway, have a great rest of your week and an excellent weekend and don’t forget…walls have ears, if you talk about me behind my back I will find out.  No, I probably won’t…  ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. ps…please tell me your eyebrows don't meet in the middle…;-)

  19. Four Dinners, As a Southerner myself I'll try not to take offense at that remark about my friend Randal. We Southerners are a kindly, moonshine drinking, banjo playing, cousin-marrying lot.Well…thats not quite true, not all of us play the banjo. ;P
