Just a quickie note to those interested.

I haven't blogged for a while now and probably won't do any more anytime soon either, unless there's some news—like if I suddenly sold the entire Tethys series for five figures or something along those lines.

Reasons for silence are manifold, but the main one is a lack of time. I am working full-time again and have so much on my plate that I am very precious about the little spare time I have. And what I do have to say I can actually put into my fiction, which is a much more productive way of promoting it.

Another reason is what amounts to a lack of interest on behalf of the public. To put it succinctly: I'm sick and tired of writing to tiny audiences. Way I see it, if people who are interested in my doings really want to know what's going on in my life, they can write to me and ask. If they're just browsing my blog because they just might be interested when they have nothing better to do on a rainy day or because they's web-surfing...well, sorry, but it's not enough reason for me to waste time doing this. The promotional reasons are nonexistent, and it's time to wind up this blog. I'll start another when it suits me.

In about a month or so I will rename this blog, wipe out entries that I don't want in there anymore, and basically go off-cyberspace; and once I am re-motivated to start another blog for book promotion, I will do so—or maybe not. Whatever.

Anybody interested in anything I might have to say, can regale themselves to back-issues of this blog, which might actually elicit surprise at the strange subjects I've touched on over the years I've written it. There's also a blog preceding this one,, which ran for years before that and has stuff in it that, in retrospect, even I find amusing.

Ciao, All.
