Well, granddaughter is home and busy tormenting her parents with sleep deprivation. There was a lot of hanging about the hospital because she’s my granddaughter and wasn’t going to start out the easy way. She’s fine now and is already trying to lift her head, and has a delightful scowl and a wicked smile.
It’s safe now to go and visit my parents for a little while. I’ll still have internet but not all the time. I will be expected to be sociable.
I have signed a contract as an editor for a small press, which might bring in a few pennies and will be good practice for editing the submissions to Leg Iron Books.
Speaking of which, I feel I should employ a cover artist. I can’t pay much but I don’t expect free work. You can opt for a share of royalties (these are small but ongoing) or a flat one-off payment. This will not affect author royalties, it will come out of my share. I’m looking particularly for a Tom Sharpe style cover image made up of scenes from the book. I’m sure there are those with far more talent than me who can do a better job than I ever could.
The recent quiet on the blog will continue for a week or so. Mid February, everything should be back to normal. I hope.
In the meantime, here’s a quick look at the baby born on the full blue blood supermoon. No hairiness, no tail, so she’s not a werewolf.
Could be the Antichrist though. We’ll have to wait and see.
