More excitement, for me this time – Not Such a Cold Fish is now on Every Day Fiction and so far seems to be reasonably well-received, though not everyone knows what a fortune-telling fish is. Are they a very British thing? You get them in Christmas crackers along with plastic rings and a set of tiddly-winks, usually (I’m not keen on Christmas crackers, as you’ll have guessed if you’ve been following this blog at all, what with my general views on Christmas), and they provide about 15 seconds of amusement before everyone gets distracted by the groans surrounding the joke someone’s reading out.
Genuine payment for writing, not just in books! (Though payment in books is near perfection in my eyes, as OneMonkey will testify). I think I’ll have to go have another iced bun to calm down.
