2014 in review

30 Dec

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

A big ‘Thank You’ to my followers and commentators!

Number One Commentator: David Prosser!

HAPPY NEW YEAR,  EVERYONE!!

The Goal’s in Sight!

2 Sep

Any day now, and my fourth book will be off to the publisher. What a weight off my mind!

With over a hundred Short Stories under my belt in the last twelve months, it’s time to take a break from this genre.  Already, I have in mind a new idea for a different type of book, but for now, I’m keeping it under my hat!

Ron’s editing is progressing well.  I overheard him tell a friend today that, “Once you’ve read the first line, you can’t put it down!”

Believe me, I can take plenty of these comments!

Those who are keen to know the title of book four will have to test their patience a little longer.  Just watch this blog, and soon it’ll be revealed!
