    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Finished my prequel trilogy (RotS is hands down the best of the three - dialogue is pretty shit, but the scale of it is great). Wife is nightshift next weekend, so the plan is to watch Solo one night (lights off, candles lot, red wine flowing), and on the second night will repeat with Rogue One and Rogue Two (aka A New Hope).

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    Glad you liked it, and thanks for the 4 star rating on Goodreads. The Kavari are a blend of the Tuareg and Bush people of Africa. The setting is partly inspired by the Age of Conan mmorpg, with the three protagonists essentially being the Demonologist, assassin and ranger classes. The in-progress next book, The Blood Hour, introduces characters inspired by the Dark Templar, the barbarian, Herald of Xotli, and necromancer classes. ** I’m currently reading Thorns of Black Rose too, as I got my free paperback copies, and it doesn’t feel ‘real’ until I’ve read it on paper. Also re-reading Retribution Falls by Wooding whiich is enjoyable.

    UK Politics: It's Life Pfeffel but not as we know it

    In the UK, intent is important. If I punch you once in a drunken fight and you hit your head off the ground and die, there was no intent to kill you, so the sentence and charge reflect that. If I’m shouting ‘die you bastard’ while using your head as a football, the intent is clearly there.

    Finally got a start date for my new (internal) job. 3 weeks from now. I’ve worked for the same public service organisation since 2002 (agency temp until Jan 2004 when i became permanent). I’ve been in Resourcing since 2015 (forecasting emergency call demand) and am now moving to workforce demand.

    Small, unworthy things: part whatever

    Depends on the films. There are some single films that feel like a fucking marathon. And Trevor is shittier.

    To Tweet Or Not To Tweet? That Is The Question!

    @sootyfeathers I think my twitter and public author page are in my sig, but not sure as I mostly visit this forum in my phone! I’ve been dabbling with instagram, as real places either feature in my novels or inspire places, so its food to show these places and do cover reveals. I need to get more involved in it.

    To Tweet Or Not To Tweet? That Is The Question!

    As a new author, I’ve been using twitter to try and get ‘out there’. I don’t think its had much of an impact on sales, but its good to try and make contacts. Does feel a bit like too many authors rather than readers, which I’ve found in a lot of the FB groups I’ve joined. One thing i dont like are follow trains. A lot of people want a lot of followers but that does mean you dont interact with most.

    Best Sitcom Episodes Ever

    Boston Legal - the episode where lawyer Denny Crane (W Shatner) is forced by a judge to defend a man who raped and killed a child, and instead shoots him in both knees - claiming self-defence. And then appears on Larry King. The episode where Denny thinks he’s being asked to become the Republican presidential nominee was funnier until Donald Trump.

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    Thanks for the 4 stars on Goodreads I enjoyed the last Greatcoats book, was quite dark in places and had a couple of twists. I’ll be finishing my Rigante re-read this week and either starting my Ketty Jay re-read or the lastest Expanse book. Also wanting to finish thr Three Musketeers.

    Near-miss from a city-killer asteroid this week

    Be afraid if a scientist announces an imminent ‘near miss’ while tanking a bottle of wine and snorting up a bag full of coke.
