It's been a while

I'd almost forgotten about this place completely. A pleasant surprise to find it still here and thriving despite my callous neglect.

I shall be embarking on some blatant self-promotion shortly, but because I'm not a total dick, I'll try not to be too unsubtle about it. For now, I'll just say I've got an eBook out, and here's a picture of its cover:…

good l luck with your writing. I turned from writing horror (or was it horrible), to a stab (ho ho) at crime ficition.

Those damned clever marketing people! I will pass on your comments to my wonderful graphic designer. Btw, the book is better (then I would say that, wouldn't I) :-)

Well, being a thug isn't all about bad behavior, although it plays a part. The bad behavior does account for most of the fun, however

Welcome to The Dark Side where there is a force that is, well, criminal.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.

Thanks for stopping by. Both Rhonda and Marian welcome you to the dark side. Love Edinburgh and anything set in that city.

Sadly the power of the beard has ebbed somewhat since Stuart MacBride penned that picture a good few years ago. Also my better half gave me a set of trimmers, which I took as a hint.

Glad to have you on The Dark Side, James. And may I say that is a most powerful beard at this increased resolution.

Why, thankyou Jenfleur.
