Christmas Blog Hop, and if you leave a comment on the blog below this one, you're in with a chance of winning a FREE ecopy of gay romance Two Christmases - which is of course suitably seasonal. The competition lasts until tomorrow (17 December) so there's still time to enter ...
Not a Shred of Evidence was briefly at No 79 in the Amazon UK Business Humour Charts (hurrah!) and the lovely Karen gave a great review to gay erotic short story The Heart's Greater Silence over at On Top Down Under Reviews. Many thanks, Karen.
This week, K and I attended the Elstead Theatre Group Christmas Revue and party, which was great. I particularly enjoyed the Old Hookers' Lament, which proved beyond doubt what fine legs our local menfolk do indeed have. Say no more ...
I also had great fun at the Elstead Writers' celebratory lunch yesterday at which there was some gorgeous soup and a veritable plethora of chocolate cake, one of them made by my good self. We also has some fantastic pieces of writing to comment on, so a suitable end to our writing year.
Not only that but I have blogged about the local Guildford response to the women bishops' crisis over at The Angry Anglican, with a whistle-stop tour through the gay marriage debate also. My anger rating is currently 9 out of 10, hey ho.
I've also managed to upset the local RSPCA who for some reason known only to them came round during the week on a door-to-door visit asking for support. Our conversation went something like this:
Me: Opens door, says "hello".
RSPCA Man: "My, you look lovely and cosy there."
Me: Thinks how rude and personal this idiot of a man is. Says (with my usual courtesy to unwanted callers), "what do you want then?"
RSPCA Man: "Do you like animals?"
Me: (truthfully) "No, not really."
RSPCA Man: "But you wouldn't hurt one, would you?"
Me: "If one was badly hurt, I'd kill it. It's the kindest thing."
RSPCA Man: Backs off and disappears without further comment, thank the Lord ...
Hmm, I doubt he'll be back, though I suspect the RSPCA might be keeping a close eye on me from now on.
And today, K and I have made our official Christmas visit to Mother and exchanged the required amount of gifts. Phew.
