BUT? Big News! Fictionmania is back and alive. A great collection of stories! I was SO pleased, I sent them a story. Was embarrassed all to hell when I discovered that I'd given it to them before. That's all right though - I'll look out another - one that I've made bloody sure isn't published there already.
I don't know if anything will come of it - but I've been looking into those self-publishing outfits. I'm not writing anything any more but figure that putting three novelettes together in an attractive paperback - and putting a reasonable price on it may be interesting. Must say that I'm fascinated. Bloody amazing what they can do nowadays. (I've talked to Carrie - and he's looking at doing my cover and illustrations - I'm as artistic as a brick wall so that's another fun aspect). Any reaction to this? I'd be delighted to get an idea.
Got some nice birthday wishes - thanks to all. Managed a few hangovers as well. Not the drinker that I used to be, I guess.
