An apology to Landon Snow

CSSF Blog Tour
Mr Snow,

I know you are more than worthy of comment here on my humble little blog. But the thing is, you see, your timing's all wrong. It's November - it's NaNoWriMo, and I'm doing really badly at keeping the pace with that too.

I've had a poorly one year old to look after, which meant I had at least a day's work to catch up on in NaNo & blogging time. And then she gave whatever it was to me, so I was completely useless over the weekend. I even went to bed before Torchwood. That's how bad it is.

So, I'm sorry, Mr Snow, that I don't really have time to comment on your exploits.

Apologies also to R K Mortenson, for not being able to plug his latest book.

Don't worry though, there are a few people out in Bloggoland doing just that. Lucky escape for me there are more reliable folks like Jim Black, Jackie Castle, Valerie Comer, Frank Creed, Gene Curtis, Chris Deanne, Janey DeMeo, April Erwin, Beth Goddard, Todd Michael Greene, Leathel Grody, Karen Hancock, Katie Hart, Sherrie Hibbs, Sharon Hinck, Joleen Howell, Jason Joyner, Karenee, Oliver King, Tina Kulesa, the entire Lost Genre Guild, Kevin Lucia, Rachel Marks, Shannon McNear, Rebecca LuElla Miller, Caleb Newell, John Otte, Cheryl Russel, Hannah Sandvig, Mirtika Schultz, Stuart Stockton, those nice Speculative Faith people, my nemesis Chris Walley, and of course Daniel I. Weaver.

Further apologies to anyone who has just read all this.

Sorry.

Aww. That's OK. I opted out of the tour entirely this time. At least you had a funny post. Chris Walley's your nemesis, eh?
Hope you and yours are healthy before too long.

Yes, Steve, you have me wondering about the Chris Walley nemesis comment, too. (See, we do read your posts! ;-)

And if you have any kids older than 1, I suggest making the Landon Snow books their bedtime reading. They are tailor made for read-aloud.

Well, if I can't think of anything useful to write, I do try to be entertaining.

The nemesis thing is explained in the review of Shadow at Evening a couple of months ago.

Aw, Steve, NoNaNoMoNoNaMoNoNoNoNaMo is your excuse for not reading, digesting, meditating on and reviewing my humble body of work known as Landon Snow? The thing is, each Landon Snow book is about 50,000 words. So if you'd read one you'd have a good feel for the goal of your NaNoNaNo (shazbot!) thing.

*Sigh.* Apologies accepted, I suppose.

Waiter! Large slice of that humble pie over here please.
