Every time I go to my own page here, I'm
reminded to make a blog entry. People who know me won't believe this but I struggle to think of things to put on my blog. However, I'll do my best.
For anyone who's interested, I have another blog - just personal ramblings really - over here
. If you plan on visiting, now is probably the best time as I'm giving away one of my books.
As I moan a lot on my main blog, I'll have a quick moan here. I've just read Robert Barnard's Dying Flames
- and enjoyed it. However, and this is a pet hate of mine, a quick read of the back cover will tell you that Christa's mother is found strangled. Fair enough. As you read the book though, there's no hint of a strangling until page 175. Page 175! (The book is 277 pages long.) Why do they have to tell you so much on the back cover? I would have been far happier if the fact that the woman was strangled came as a surprise. Anyway, moan over. But publishers take note: do not spoil the story for us!
