If you are in New York…


My blogging friend Felicity Harley has a daughter, Sarah. She has her own company, based in New York City, USA.

Sarah is putting on a play she wrote. The theatre is called Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street, Astor Place, New York. NY1003

Here is a link to the theatre, and some information about the play.

If any of my readers are going to be in that city on the 14th, try to get along to support the play.

In fact, I’ve been writing this whole series since 2001, when I penned the first draft for book one (which is being published early next year), and along the way, managed to write four drafts for book three, and five for book four.

This isn’t a humble brag or record. In all honesty, I should have been done with this series years ago. The point I’m (badly) trying to make is that we can work on a piece of writing for a long time. And when you’ve worked on something for so long and…
