All at sea

And now a quick word from our sponsor... me.

In case you're wondering where I am and what I've been up to, I'm all at sea.  Literally.  Mrs Blog and I have been taking a three week cruise on board the delightful MSC Sinfonia, from Genoa, Italy, to Cape Town, South Africa.

We're currently somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic, a couple of days' sailing away from our first landfall in Africa, Walvis Bay, in Namibia.

Yes, I do get around.

Yes, you can expect to see a bit of cruise boat action in a future novel.

No, I didn't get seasick.

And, yes, I am planning on setting a future novel in Namibia  - it'll be about a middle aged author who eats and drinks too much at sea and.... well, I haven't thought much further than that.

In other news, my latest novel THE PREY seems be doing quite well in Australia, so thanks to everyone who bought a copy.  If you haven't, please do so as it makes a nice Christmas present for you and yours, and for me, as I need the money top support my cruise boat gigolo lifestyle.

And in some actual news (well, more self promotion dressed up as news), here's me talking in the Melbourne AGE and the Sydney Morning Herald about books that changed me.  Feel free to click on through and 'like'/'share'/whatever.

Happy sailing.
