P.S.  A Note on Hosting Guest Posts on This Blog:

I don’t. Sorry!

P.P.S. A Note on Trying To Slip Ads Into The Comments:

Every comment containing a link will go into either moderation or spam. I lose half of them. Sometimes I lose them on purpose, because it’s so obvious that commenters are trying to sell something, rather than truly take part in the spirited discussion I like to encourage on this blog. Just so you’re aware.

P.P.P.S. A Summary, In Case You Missed It:

Please don’t blatantly try to use this blog for unsolicited advertising. I don’t like it.

    I love this blog and it helps me understand what I am going to write. I just wish you’d do a young adult title chart like you did on the others. helped me a lot and I passed it onwards to my friends

      Thank you, Raven, much appreciated, and delighted you wanted to share it. I’ll have a think about the young adult titles. It just depends on there being very strong clichés and stereotypes to lampoon!

    WTF is going on? I follow this blog but I’m not getting notifications — I had to come here to find out what I was missing. And there’s nowhere for comments on the posts. How could I not want to comment on the idea of your talking to your arse? Come on, Sparling, get a grip on your minions. No…no, dear, I said MINIONS.

      WTF indeed John?! I haven’t had any other reports of difficulties commenting on my posts… and you’ve definitely got me scratching my head on the notifications. Has anything changed with you on the techie end? Did you buy a new supercomputer that doesn’t like my retro blog style? Did you accidentally delete me from your safe list while trying to order chips? Did you insult WordPress’s granny in a blind online rage??

      Perhaps WordPress can help you out? My minions would try, but they’re being rehoused at the moment, because the chicken coop was overrun by small angry teetotallers.

    Hi Tara, Just wanted to say that I am a big fan of your blog. I have a screenwriting background, but only recently took to writing longer works of fiction so this has been incredibly helpful. As a way to get over a few insecurities, I am blogging about my new experiences and sharing some things myself. I am excited for newer posts, but really will be digging in to the archives I am sure! Excited to be a new reader!

      Hi Philip, that’s so nice to hear and you’re so very welcome here too. Do stop awhile and have a poke about. Never mind the insecurities, they’re for people off social media. Remember that online, we are all at our most amazingest 😜
