Just Been Lazy

Yup, I have no good excuse. I have just been lazy for the past few days. So I have not been writing on here.

Actually lazy probably is not true, I have actually been quite busy doing other things.

I have been up to all sorts of trouble, I write for BNN, and silly me I wrote the owner a nag letter about the appalling use of grammar, spelling and content of some of the writers, my punishment for doing this was to get promoted to the editorial staff!

I was sold on the idea when Robert explained that the job entailed rotten hours and almost no thanks or reward. Now who in their right mind could turn down an offer like that!

The other mischief that I get into is book reviewing. I read a lot, and I thought becoming a book reviewer would be fun and profitable! Well it is fun anyway.

I spent most of my free time last week reading and reviewing a novel called 'Drift'. Actually it was a great book, but at 400 pages and 3 days to do it in, obviously it was a bit of a challenge. The great news was that the author Steven Paul Mark liked the review and agreed to a telephone interview.

He turned out to be a most engaging man, it was a real pleasure to talk to him. You can find the review here, and the interview here.

If you are looking for a good book to read, and if you like the techo-thriller genre I can recommend this one.

I already have a new adventure in reading planned, there is a new JFK conspiracy book about to hit the streets, and there is a review copy in the mail to me from the authors. I can hardly wait, I love a good conspiracy, and JFK has to be the best one of the 20th century.

Life is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
