Hi Brian, good to hear from you. I hope you had fun the rest of the day and I REALLY hope the children loved their presents.
Ah bassets, who could resist them? They are an excellent choice of pet for a writer. Opus is 12 in October and he's actually snoozing here under my chair as I type-a cheese induced coma to be honest.
Andrew's going to be picking up a copy of Borderlands tomorrow after work, we were both really awed by the lyricism and the sense of beauty and in your writing, and a crime novel to boot, cannot wait to read it. You must sign it for me next time we meet.
Take care of yourself,
It was lovely to meet you on Saturday - it was a very enjoyable day - especially the last panel. I didn't realise you had a basset - we used to have two! The best of luck with Undertow - I'm looking forward to reading it.
