The ebook of Vin Stone – Night Soil has been published. So far it is available at Kobo. You really should go and have a look, and then, at such a low price as that, buy it. Then, of course, you will want to write a review of it, telling everyone what a great story it is and how masterfully told. If you are one of the people who received an advance readers copy (ARC) then you can go directly to the review stage without even having to buy the book, although, given that I wrote the first draft with a fountain pen, that is an almost embarrassingly low price.

In this book, Vin Stone engages in some uncharacteristic derring-do, so you should really check it out.

Green Comet is getting popular. There has been a good uptick in traffic here lately and it’s nice. I see what you’re doing, you lovely people. Welcome. Have a look around. Make yourself at home. Join the discussions. Drop a comment. We love to hear from you.

There has also been an increase in downloads of the Green Comet trilogy. Thank you. That makes this ink-stained wretch feel good. The trilogy is licensed Creative Commons (CC-BY-SA) so please help yourself. Take one of each. Take several and give them to your friends. Tell your friends to come and download them for themselves.

In addition to all that, people have been registering with the site, joining our happy little group. Well, come on down. The more the merrier.

So far, 2023 is turning out very well, thanks to you. And on top of all that, this year’s novel is flowing satisfactorily out of my fountain pens.

Novel number nine is flowing out of my pen. I’ve given it a working title of Night Soil but I’m sure that will change. This is book three of the Vin Stone series, and it’s beginning to look like this will be more than the usual trilogy. I had some of the usual wondering whether or not I’d be able to write it, but it’s coming just as easily as the others. As usual, when I get a good first sentence, the rest follows. And my characters always show me the way, so it’s sometimes a matter of writing fast enough to keep up with them.

Coffee and fountain pens will get me through.
