Getcher Hal Spacejock heeyah…

If you have not yet been fortunate enough to have the Hal Spacejock experience, now’s your chance to get it for absolutely free! All that is required is for you to click a few buttons. Like this link:

You know you want to.

And if you like it, just so you know, book 4 (No Free Lunch) was just released, so there’s plenty more where that came from!

Hal Spacejock 4: No Free Lunch launch

Well, there wasn’t a free lunch, but there were free nibblies and drinks! I’ve just come home from the launch of Hal Spacejock 4: No Free Lunch, by fellow ASIM-ite Simon Haynes (alias 

). Was very pleasant, even with the inclusion of the rugrats, and I’m glad I could be there to support Simon. Not, perhaps, that he truly NEEDS my support, given the massiveness of his fan following AND the almost full page write up on him and the new sekrit (not so sekrit now that the West Australian outed him today!) project in the West today, but still, I’m glad I could be there. 

I remember reading a very early version of the original self-published Hal Spacejock, and feel privileged to have been there since early on. I was lucky enough to collect Simon’s Tin Duck for him (for Hal 3: Just Desserts) earlier this year, which I FINALLY passed to it’s rightful owner this evening also!  I read the third instalment of this awesomely fun series on a couple of weeks ago (VERY slack of me!) and am totally looking forward to losing myself in this one – apparently there’s horror! *boggles*

Keep an eye out for some forthcoming announcements re: the Spacejock series – I’m not doing the outing here tonight even if the West DID let the cat out of the bag today!


It was a delight too to spend some time (however briefly) with 

and Russ, so all in all, lovely and worth the drive (and the whiny kids on the way home 🙂 )

“Go here and keep hitting random quotes until you get five that resonate with you, then post them in your journal.”

Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it. Plan more than you can do, then do it.
Actions have consequences…first rule of life. And the second rule is this – you are the only one responsible for your own actions.
Holly Lisle, Fire In The Mist, 1992 

No one else can speak the words on your lips 
Drench yourself in words unspoken 
Live your life with arms wide open 
Today is where your book begins 
The rest is still unwritten
Natasha Bedingfield, Unwritten
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.
Saint Francis de Sales (1567 – 1622)
The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.
Madeleine L’Engle (1918 – ), in New York Times, 1985
