Hello, dragon fans. Forgive the lack of a blog post on Sunday. The author was suffering from 'man flu', commonly known as 'a cold'. As any woman out there will know, this is a serious condition, for which even Gretel does not have a cure. The only remedy is time and a truck load of tissues. However, despite him saying he felt like he had a basketball stuffed in his head all weekend, he still valiantly wrote over 10,000 words last week (amazing for him) and FINISHED the main part of THE FIRE ASCENDING. There is now just a series epilogue to go (about 2000 words)and that's it. More about this on Sunday, plus an exciting announcement of a new visit to America next April... Until then, happy reading. Hrrr!
