Headrush. Two posts in the same day. New World Order, people. Thought I'd start with something small. The Black Library Bolthole. There are forums and there are forums. The Black Library Bolthole takes some beating for three reasons. I hang around the Ask the Author section, answering questions and occasionally asking other authors for answers when I don't have a clue. Some of the best forumites on the internet also hang out there, choosing to shoot the breeze in preference to shooting down each other's points of view. My good friend and fellow author Sarah Cawkwell is the resident sheriff in town down there, keeping order and lending the whole affair a sense of class it really doesn't deserve. Anyway, the Bolthole has recently moved. The old site still exists and contains my answers to a myriad of sensible (and some less sensible) questions put to me by readers. The address for the old archived site is: http://z6.invisionfree.com/bljunkies/index.php?act=idx. The sexy new site can be reached using the link list on the side bar of this site. Look, they even have t-shirts! If you have any questions, feel free to use the direct link opposite and I'll get back to you. I'm off to go and answer some fresh questions there now.
Blogging. Given the choice between writing and blogging, I try to do the right thing and write. Blogging has a bad reputation. Almost as bad as forum-hopping, Facebooking and tweeting. All forms of procrastination. So I do try to be good. I stoke the fires of inspiration and keep the words coming. The fact is, I have a lot to blog about and the two processes aren't mutually exclusive. They feed into each other. I need to blog more regularly but in smaller, bite-size chunks. That's the way to go. You know I mean business this time. I've changed the blog appearance and everything.
