I HAVE NOT DISAPPEARED...

Prompted by my good friend Mary, reminding me that I have a responsibility and a duty to post blog entries as well as posting on Facebook and Twitter, I have to explain that my lack of attention to the blog has been born out of a fustration with the seeming lack of responses to what I post, combined with someone's intent to reply to my blog entries with a series of links to dodgy Japanese porn sites! All those little dots that follow my posts are actually links to these sites, and if that's what people think of what I have to say...well, then maybe I will just stick to FB and Twitter.

But perhaps not.

I do like to post blog entries on the site, and I did approach it with a view to posting a least one article a month, but I have let it slip.

I will post again, no fear, but bear with me! A lot has been going on, and the Australian/New Zealand/USA/France/Canada tour rapidly approaches, and I will be vanishing from the start of September to the start of November.

Speak soon, no doubt.

Best wishes, always,
Roger.

Mary took the words out of my mouth. The porn thing is a pain - how does that happen? - and the lack of responses is every bloggers worry.

But it is nice to hear what you've been up to...then I can live a writers' life vicariously through your good self:-)

The Japanese porn that posts to Blogger is less dodgy than the Korean porn, which is less dodgy than the Hong Kong porn. So consider yourself fortunate.

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems. It really is good to hear what you've been up to so don't let the silly sods get to you. x

Missed your posts on here Roger. Whilst I understand that the porn links must be annoying, don't let them drive you away - it is after all YOUR blog not theirs!

Michael, C.N. Nevets, Sue and Debbie...
Well, it's wonderful to get some replies! Thank you very much. Okay, you've got me. I will do a new post before I disappear on tour!

To be honest I had not replied for a bit because I thought the activity level had dropped and you were focusing on the Facebook Stuff ! Looking forward to the Saints of New York coming out next month and seeing the cover on the front of the website. Actually a question for you, How do you count down the days before the book comes out ?

Brian,
Starting a month before the book is released, I drink one shot of good whiskey on day one, two shots on day three, two shots on day four, and then by the time I get to publication date I am too drunk to care whether anyone likes the book or not!
Great to hear from you. Hope all's well!
Roger.

All well here though might put that into practice from friday evening to midnight sunday to help me face the realities of the workplace on a monday morning !
