    Thanks for reminding me that I need to do an update here. We've been having lots of conversations over on FB and I've had a couple of RL meetings. The first was with Jacqui Ward and Amanda Saint. As a result of that meeting, they are handling the ...

    Totally get that some people are averse to FB. I'll try to keep things updated here to keep you all in the loop. Can't see why we wouldn't be open to non-fiction in theory but 'story' is also a keyword so it has to work on that level too, if that ...
