I know I’ve said this before, but last week I think I actually had a viable idea for a new novel. Not going to say anything about it of course, but I really feel this is something I could write. So if something does emerge over the next few months/years, remember: you heard it here first.

Meanwhile, TAKE IT COOL proceeds apace, pausing only for a brief catch-up post for latecomers before hurtling on into what I like to think of as Dog-Face Phil’s Origin Story.

And as a special bonus this week, the arrival of my bees has sparked HIVEMINDING back into life.

So take your pick between reggae and bees. Most of the bases covered there I think.
