Deliveries and deliveries

We bloody did it! In the days before Christmas we posted over 700 parcels, and now people all over the world are reading books and watching films, and I’m a bit taken aback, in a really good way. I realise that I thought everyone was buying them out of kindness […]

How to write a book

They say starting is half the battle, but finishing is way more than half so I’m not sure how the old grindstone arithmetic is working there. Here’s my analogy: the house is now built, watertight, functional, ready to move in, but I just seem to be spending months scurrying breathlessly […]

The fun in funding…

Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye, Four and twenty blackbirds, baked in the pie, Chico’s in his hayshed, eating bread and honey, Hannah’s in her counting house, frightened by the money… It’s been almost three weeks since the Kickstarter ended in a blaze of white-knuckle adrenaline […]

Chico the wonder donkey

All hail Chico, keen as mustard! He is truly an impressive creature, and I am just so amazed by his rate of learning. Once upon a time, about two weeks ago, he was scared of manhole covers and the giant white letters that say ARAF SLOW in the road. He’s […]

The battle for power, when neither of us want it

Things are moving fast out here, in some ways. In other ways, not so much. Fortified by a little wine I finally worked out the miles-to-time ratio this evening and discovered that if I keep on at this rate we’ll be back in Aberystwyth in fifty weeks. Pretty much a […]
