SOBBB - the time has come....

September 20th, 2007

Part of the reason for setting up the new AustCrimeFiction site was being able to amalgamate a lot of activities in one place - backwards"ing" and forwards"ing" between here and the old wiki and the forums package and around in circles was giving me heartburn - so the new site went into place.

And we're now pretty well advanced in the housekeeping required by that changeover - so the time has come to eat my own dog food as they say - and start blogging properly over there.

So from here on in - if you happen to be listening / rss feeding / care one way or the other - you'll find my general mutterings and mumblings at:

Scarlet Stiletto - The First Cut

September 10th, 2007

I mentioned earlier I think that I've been reading this great anthology of short stories from the Local Sisters in Crime Chapter - I've finally started making very restricted comments at:

It's hard to say too much about each individual story without giving too much away - but this is a fabulous selection of short stories.
