Apologies for lack of recent posts, and "Open Book"

First, many apologies for not having posted recently. I have been writing rather than reading. Since my last post a few weeks back I have delivered not one but two finished books to the publishers.

One, Lucia on Holiday, will hopefully be of interest to many who read book blogs as it is the next instalment of my continuation of the classic Mapp and Lucia stories. I can be heard discussing it with Mariella on Radio 4's Open Book at 4pm on Sunday.

"The Waste Land" nominated for a prize

You heard it first from Pursewarden! Duly praised by this blog on its release (see review in May 2010 archive), Simon Acland's wonderful book "The Waste Land" has now been nominated for a People's Book Prize. You can vote for it here.
