I'm going through a period of reorganisation right now, a kind of reorganisation of my life. There's a lot of stuff going on of a very personal nature, so I'm taking a break from writing the X-Troop series until January next year.
I hope you don't mind. But of course you don't, you're a patient reader.
You are, aren't you?
No? Well, give it a go.
As well as normal life, other projects have been vying for my attention (and they have been so hard to resist). In the middle of that, I have made contact with my Spanish relatives for the first time since I was a baby. I have never known them and, as you can imagine, this is a pretty big deal. I shall be flying to Spain soon for an emotional reunion. It will be my first journey there as an adult.
So yeah, big stuff going on.
So wish me well, and I'll pick up this blog again in January as I resume my normal duties. Alex Harvey and the boys (and Dolores) remain on task. Unlike me, they don't hang about, so I'll tell you the rest of their story next year, with Book 5 of the series (as yet untitled) looking to come out around Easter 2015.
In the meantime, behave yourselves, and don't do anything I wouldn't do. Or anything I would do.
But if you do, remember the maxim: Don't get caught.
Have a great new year (and the rest of this year of course), and I'll see you all in 2015.
