You might have noticed (or you might not; in which case, as you were!) that I haven’t updated this blog for, oh, around six months. The good news is that I haven’t been accidentally crushed to death by the rapidly growing, never diminishing piles of Books I Need to Read that are placed variously and precariously around my living quarters; the bad news is that I’m just a little busy to post regularly at the moment. This is partly because I’m now the books columnist for the charming folks over at Killings, the Kill Your Darlings blog, so you can still read my book-related ramblings every other Tuesday. I’m also working on a new project with the talented writer/director/producer/wonder woman Jackie Ryan called the Fanciful Fiction Auxiliary, so, if you’ve got the time or the inclination, take a look at the site and find us on Facebook here.

One day soon, I might read a book that was published more than 12 months ago (scandal!) and find the time to write about it here, so don’t give up on me just yet …
