Your 'orther thred' is well overdue, although you need to hire me to edit that title for you. I charge £1000 per word.

Thanks David. Fingers crossed for a fruitful relationship with Amazon.
And thanks for the editing offer - but there's no way I'm paying you £3,000.

Well, it took you 3 years to suggest it!

Erm... anyway, I could post a photo, but it's not a pretty sight - at the moment I'm even hairier than you are (although my nose is red rather than black).

For various reasons the real me is actually still in the closet (about my writing, that is). Perhaps that will change in 2016.

No escaping that now with fame beckoning.
I do have a (crappy) photo on my website, and I dithered about that for ages. I must admit the idea of an Amazon film crew coming to my house a la Robinson fills me with dread. And I haven't got a cute little writing house in the garden.

You're very welcome, Ray. It is, after all, the unspoken first rule of KUFing to be helpful to your fellow authors. Smile
Don't forget to wear your name badge at the APub do in the spring so I know who you are and can have a beer with you.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Looking forward to it, Steve. I think. It's all been a bit odd so far.

Thank you, Shayne. If my historical fiction is ever half as successful as yours I'll be very happy for myself too.
