Back In Time

I found my old blog the other day. Quite illuminating. I was a bit of a blog maniac in those days, posting several times a week, often at great length. Quite a lot was about food, more about dealing with depression. Looking back, it is interesting to see the changes. You don't notice changes in … Continue reading Back In Time

Recovered…

Well, I have bitten the bullet and produced a new cover for Renaissance. I am still not happy with it but it is more like more action adventure thriller covers so hopefully it will help sales.
