It’s good to know that in my absence you all chatted nicely among yourselves and answered all your own questions. Thanks in particular go to Emma Darwin and Nicola Slade for their efforts while I was away, even though they didn’t even realise I was gone. Perhaps I could persuade them to take over writing the main posts, too, then I need do nothing but glory in “my” reader-stats.
If anyone’s wondering who these useful readers are, Nicola Slade’s second novel, Murder Most Welcome, was published recently by Robert Hale and Emma’s second novel, A Secret Alchemy, is due out any minute, I think. I’ve already got both of Nicky’s books, and very fine they are too, and I’ll be buying Emma’s next as soon as it’s out because her first, The Mathematics of Love, was so very good.
