Another book on my shelf.

It's here! I got my first delivery of 'Where's Holmes?' the absent Sherlock anthology by Queensland group, Specul8. My story, Mrs Hudson Investigates, is in it. A paid gig! I have a few copies available for anyone living in Adelaide or you can buy them via Amazon or Book Depository.


So now I have another book to add to my brag shelf. Squee.

Book Blog Tour Stop#7: Guest Post – The Cast of Characters

For our final stop on this book blog tour we travel back to the States for my second guest blog post on David Lee Summer's Web journal.

I met David on the original Scribblers' Den steampunk writers' forum. He's an author, editor (science fiction and fantasy magazine, Tales of the Talisman) and sky-watcher, living somewhere between the western and final frontiers in Southern New Mexico. I'm quite jealous of his job at the observatory.
