Happy New Year

Happy New Year, btw. I wish I had the time to recount my saturnalian season of excess over the last two weeks, but ye see that gorgeous bloody cover down below? I've gotta put the words behind it. I'm almost there now, but for the final stretch I'm basically closing all the doors, battening down the hatches, not answering the phone, not ranting on the web, not answering emails unless urgent, and so on. My poor bloody editor's been waiting far too long as is.

And the bugger is I've got this huge rant about Indie Fiction just waiting to be finished off, see, and it's all about how the barriers between literary fiction and genre fiction are breaking down because -- no! Stop right now, Duncan. Bad Duncan! Naughty Duncan! No ranting till you finish INK.

So , yes. Happy New Year. I will be back presently but in the meantime, just look at that pretty picture down below. Isn't it a beauty? Isn't it every bit as gorgeous as the cover for VELLUM, something which I never thought possible? Isn't it just?

Happy New Year? Fuck, yeah.

Yeah, get to work you lazy sod. Some of us are waiting for "Ink", you know!

In the meantime, I'll see you when I see you.

No, no! Ink's supposed to be green. Or purple. In big, shaky capitals. Otherwise, pretty funky.
