After waiting three weeks for Telekom DE, to establish a DSL connection, we have now been told that it should be available in January 2015. Or there about.

If we were living in a remote location,  I would still be surprised and dismayed. But we live less that a kilometre from a village, and seven kilometres from a large town. The best part is, they really don’t give a shit, and each time I call them I get a completely different story.

If I were in Bangladesh, I might not feel so bad. But in technologically advanced Germany…

Anyway, it means that I will effectively be offline for the next six months. This has prevented me from publishing ‘Heather’, as I had planned to do at the end of this month. The book is ready to go, but without the ability to promote, it is pointless. Another six months on top of all of the other delays. Disappointing to say the least.

Looking at the rather slim upside, this period will give me more time to advance with Carlotta, the prequel to Heather.

Happy writing and surfing…

I have written as far back as I can recall. Until 2011, that writing was just for me, or as rambling letters to friends and travelogues to the family. I never thought about why, or if others did similarly, and the thought of publishing never entered my head. Since I left England in 1979, I have been collecting experiences, people, and places. From the blood-soaked streets of Kampala, the polluted dust bowls of the Sahara, or the pristine ice floes of the Antarctic, I have gathered and filed them away. Some have recently squeezed through the bars of insecurity and are now at large in the pages of my first three novels. Others await their future fates.
