And…back!

So this is one of those posts where I make all kinds of excuses about where I’ve been.  Except I’ve actually been accomplishing loads of important un-bloggy stuff.

I have a new job that starts next month.  I shall still be copywriting for a little agency, but it’s a little step up and I’ve been waiting for this opportunity to come along.  So, hooray!

I have finally moved in properly (except for the odd bit of IKEA furniture that still needs assembling–I somehow managed to build a desk backwards) to my new flat.

I have dug out my old MS from under layers of dust and began a massive edit (rewrite)…so I should be ready to re-query early next year whilst I work on the current WIP.

Now.  Enough of what I’ve been up to and on to what everyone else has been up to!  Nathan Bransford is no longer agenting (sob), but is still blogging (hooray).  His latest post talks about how to build an online following (number 1 is be consistent…HAHA—ABWP MegaFail).

And while I’m on the subject of MegaFails, Amazon listed a Pedophile’s Code of Conduct, which I initially thought must be a bit of a piss take, and promptly forwarded on to the work colleagues, including Creative Director et al.  But it seems the book is rather serious.  And as much as I vehemently oppose book banning ( Lolita is, after all, an amazing, if deeply disturbing, book), I think this may be going a bit too far.   Also, it’s now hit the top 100 list–probably boosted by people like me complaining about it.  Huh.

And in case you’re traumatised by the Pedophile book news, I’ll leave you with the funny and super-cute Ninja Cat (so you can sleep at night):

    And I like the pathetic, teary-eyed puppy who swore she’d hate you if you ever finally came back am relieved and overjoyed, even without the excuses. 😀

    You are unfailingly loyal! Like said puppy, only far more eloquent.
