[Picture was a photo, it had a bullet in... geddit?]
Or indeed, bulletin. Not much news on the Moffat front. As some of you will know, the sequel to Gibbous House, No Good Deed or What Moffat Did Next is a "work in progress". This is, I confess, somewhat of a misnomer, since WMDN has been stuck on 70,500 words for some weeks and I can't quite see how to get from where it is to the ending I have in mind. (No, I'm not putting space zombies in it).
I did pitch it to Unbound about 9 weeks ago, but despite what it says on the submissions page, Unbound is a victim of its own success and among our secret Cabal of writers on Facebook, the word is that 12 weeks is a normal turnaround time from submission to acceptance or the 'R' word.
Should the news be bad, my intention will be to self-publish, however, I shall employ a professional structural, copy and proof editor to work on the manuscript.
In other news, I am engaged with Cerasus Poetry in the process of producing a poetry collection which should appear later this year or early next.
One last thing, if you haven't reviewed Gibbous House, do consider writing a review, please. I have placed a guide created by an idiot (as opposed to an Idiot's Guide) below.
