Short and twisty...

... and I'm not referring to the state of the fairy lights, though I'm sure they will be extremely twisty when I finally wrestle them out of hiding, ready to sling at the tree. I've vowed to persist with untangling them this year, instead of going into a giant sulk and storming to the nearest shop to buy new ones.  There's a bonfire sized heap of them in the garage now - I might enter it for the Turner Prize next year.

No, I'm referring to having a collection of short stories available to download, called Behind Closed Doors... and other tales with a twist.  It's called that, because all the stories have a twist. And there's a story in it called Behind Closed Doors. I know. I'm a blinking genius. Lots of them have been previously published in magazines, and some of them haven't, and it's actually really nice to have a batch of them all in one place.

It was also a good opportunity to aknowledge the writing groups I belong to, as I'm still quite certain I'd never have had the bare-faced cheek to start submitting my stories in the first place without all the support and feedback.

Elsewhere... MY FUTURE HUSBAND has been picked by Amazon for a 100 books promotion, and as a result has raced back up the charts, which was nice to see. I'm still writing stories, and pressing on with novel 4, and waiting to hear from my publisher about the future of books 2 and 3, but I think that'll probably happen in the new year now, as this one's racing rather indecently to its end.

And on that note, I'll wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a splended 2014, and thank you for all your kind words and support this year. It makes this writing journey so much more enjoyable.

And if anyone has any clever tips for untangling fairy lights, could you please let me know.  Quickly.
