Happy Christmas

This has been quite the year. The first three Aneka Jansen books, The Steel Trilogy, have gone to press and been very well received. More people have picked up on the Thaumatology series as a result. I couldn’t be happier. Next year will see three more books about Aneka, a new one about Ceri and Lily, and maybe the result of another little project I’m working on.

So, if you’ve read my books and liked them, thank you, I’m glad you did, and I hope you have a great Christmas. If you’ve bought them and didn’t like them, thank you, sorry, and I hope you have a great Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Happy Saturnalia

Back in the day (I was young then) around about this time of year some lucky young man would be about to have the time of his life. Picked apparently at random, he was made the King of the Saturnalia. He got all the booze, food, and booty he could lay his hands on, and then he got killed. One of those wonderful mid-winter festival things. Christmas is probably where it is in the year to cover it up.

So, let’s all open a bottle and drink to the Old Days, because if we hadn’t had them there’d be a great big hole in History and we probably wouldn’t be here.

Whatever form of festival you’re having around this time, have a really good one.
