My life is full of updates. Today you get small ones, just to reassure you that I’m still here. I’ve had an exceptionally challenging time since early April and it will be another few weeks before my life gets back to normal.
First news is a review of Langue[dot]doc 1305 by an academic. I know what I put into my novels, but I don’t know how successful I am in this until someone points it out, so this review makes me happy, because some of the things I intentionally put in are explained: http://medievallyspeaking.blogspot.com.au/2016/05/polack-languedotdoc-1305.html
Secondly, I will have an essay myself on Langue[dot]doc 1305 in a coming issue of postmedieval. I’ll let you know when it appears.
My new novel appears to have been delayed. Due to my recent and interesting past, I don’t know why there is a delay. The release of the book was the day of my operation, so I didn’t know it hadn’t come out until I was fully conscious. It was a disconcerting piece of news to wake up to in hospital, I admit. Again, when I have news, I’ll post it here.
History and Fiction is safely released and looks very pretty. If your bookseller doesn’t have it and you want it, the publisher is has world wide distribution so they should be able to get it in. I do need to warn you that it’s an academic book and so it’s rather expensive.
