23rd March - I am slowly getting a bit better, and now able to work on my computer in the study which is a lot better. However, I still need to get into bed about 3.00 in the afternoon, and often sleep for a couple of hours then. Ann is also progressing, but wakes incredibly early each morning - about 3.30. Gillian of the Chalet School is now at the printers and will be published towards the end of April. Peter's Room by Antonia Forest is also at the printers but will not be published until the end of June (it was sent to the printers early because of a huge order from NZ).
8th March - some of you will know that neither of us has been well recently. I collapsed behind the altar on Ash Wednesday (14 Feb) and was out cold for 2-3 minutes. It turns out that I have had a v nasty virus and this has badly affected my M.E. Ann has also had the same virus, though in a different way. This was not helped by the very cold weather and snow. We are now both a bit better, though I am on sick-leave from the parish and it will be some time before I am back full-time. Ann is keeping well up to date with orders. Please note that The Chalet School and Richenda was published on 6 March and pre-ordered copies are in the process of being sent out now. One thing I have not yet been able to do is to finalise the typesetting for Peter's Room by Antonia Forest or CS Gillian by carol Allan. I hope to be able to do this next week and then I can give a more accurate picture of what will be published next.
Any problems or queries please email me.
