Update of Indie Author Page

I have been somewhat neglectful of my indie author page. Here are some updates:

Linda Cassidy LewisAn Illusion of Trust. This is the sequel to Brevity of Roses and follows relationships encountered there.

Linda MacDonaldA Meeting of a Different Kind. This is a sequel to Meeting Lydia but written from the perspective of other characters – another window on the business of re-vitalising by email, old relationships.

Vall Buss: The Silver Spindle. Sci fi written by a scientist flying under a pen name.

Cathryn Grant: Cathryn has been on a bit of a roll lately. Her most recent, Last Chance (a suburban ghost story), is just out on Amazon, but there is a whole list there – noir, suburban, ghost, and mystery.

Comic Relief

Happy Red Nose Day



Every two years in the UK, madness breaks out. We stick on red clown noses, sit in baths of baked beans, and shave our heads. Well, not all of us, obviously, but enough to prompt the rest of us to cough up cash to help disadvantaged people here and abroad.  Comic Relief is the uncontained, arsey version of Children in Need and even our senior politicians feel obliged to take part. My bit is easy – I’m asking you to flex your muscles while I sit here and wait. There are eleven comments on my little bit of Lascaux flash so far – ten more by midnight tonight UK time = £50.00 to Comic Relief. Go on – All the Birthdays, Lascaux Flash competition


All the Birthdays – Lascaux flash competition

And coming in at Number One, it’s All the Birthdays by Moi! Ok, so it’s just that it’s the first up but admit it, you’d milk that Top Spot too wouldn’t you? Go and have a look – only 245-ish words so no time at all. And it’s a bit of a shocker. You’ll like that.
