The Phoenix Rises Her Distracted Head Once More

After two separate attempts to start posting regularly to this blog, I am going to attempt it yet again. I realise that posting only once a year is a bit pathetic; but yet again I'm going to use the excuse that life has become so much busier. Besides, for the past year I've been working on a major writing project as well as keeping up my coffee and beer columns, so I really haven't had much available time. I know that sounds like an excuse.

So here I am again, beaming brightly with the same optimism that this is a fresh start and I will again be posting regularly about all sorts of things. Hmmm, says my realistic alter-ego. Watch this space...

To be perfectly honest, considering the cataclysmic events of 2016 and all the time I've spent posting on Facebook about Brexit and Trump, I was afraid of peppering what I had originally intended as a simple exploration of expat life and sandwiches with a barrage of political posts. I will admit that both events mentioned have negatively affected my experience as an American citizen living as a permanent resident in Britain. But I'm not going to dwell on that here.

What I am going to say is that I've just published another ebook. The Hat Club is my second novel, and it deals with 3D printing and cloud technology gone a little, well, berserk. It's another satire, naturally, because that's what I will continue to do, even though some have claimed that satire is now dead. As my book is a technological adventure I'm rather happy to admit it was written completely on my iPhone via the Google Cloud. And it's got some great art by my friend Kimmer.

So check it out here at Smashwords.Com. At least download a free sample to read. And if you end up purchasing and reading the entire novel, please post a short review at the bottom of the Smashwords page.

And now it's onward and upward to hopefully more posting and new sandwich experiences. Meanwhile I'm going to eat this Stilton and rocket sandwich with hot mango chutney...
