Off we go again!

 Greetings, all!
How the very devil are you?
Time, I think, for an update.

First of all, I have completed the first draft of the sequel to Crystal Eyes (still available at all good eBook retailers)! It's now marinading nicely, resting for a little while before I return to polish it up and try to correct some of my mistakes. I like it, I think it's a good story, I hope you will agree!

Secondly, I'm in touch with an editing company who I hope will give Heroes Wanted a look over and help me make it as good as it can possibly be. It will appear this year, I am determined!

Thirdly, I'm about to move house! If I'm lucky, I'll actually have somewhere to move into - this is still slightly up in the air. I may end up sleeping on the back seat of the car. The dog can have the passenger seat.

The side effect of this is that my online presence may be diminished for at least a couple of weeks while I try and get broadband connected. It remains to be seen what the mobile signal is like. I may have been premature announcing the whole LIVE WRITING! thing if I can't get online to actually update it. Keep an eye on my Twitter feed (@BigAlien) and the LIVE WRITING! page for updates.

There may also be a slight hiatus in my Bake Off Challenge videos - a new one of which has just gone live (also embedded below) - if I can't upload. Plus, you know, the time-consuming business of moving house may also interfere a little. I'm still going to try and bake something off each episode, they just might not appear in any kind of reliable way.

That's it for now - a short update for quite a lot of stuff.

Until next time, my friends, I bid you a fond adieu!
Allen
