    Boarders Writing a Novel Part 15

    Just seen the cover of Resurrection Men, and it's looking good RPBL's very helpful readthrough and feedback from 2016 seems to have caught most of the remainibg errors, as the editing went quickly with minimal changes. I'm about to get it back from the proofreader, a fresh pair of eyes to catch anything myself or the editor missed. So fingers crossed should be out as an ebook soon, followed few months later in print. I'm still trying to find a publisher for my fantasy novel Thorns of Black Rose, set in a north Africa based setting. If anyone is interested in reading it and offering any feedback, I'd be very grateful. It's 75k words, and if requested can be sent in a single spaced version that can be easily uploaded to kindle.

    UK Politics: Royal Weddings and Referendums

    Trump has just shat all over May over Brexit. Given Trump likely knows little about Brexit (and cares even less), this is almost certainly a favour for Farage and Boris. It's a disgrace we're actually entertainibg this clown. Millions are being spent in policing alone in Scotland, solely so he can play a round of golf.
  3. Not helped that a 'westerner' (Dany) turns up to sort out their shit

    A tory politician forced to give money to the unwashed poor? It must have killed him.

    Come to Britain. The weather's good (for now) and the pound's about to plummet, so it'll be cheap...

    Unintentionally funny book titles

    What book titles perhaps don't have the impact the author intended? As it's the 100th anniversary of the British RAF, there was mention of the Biggles books on the news. They're about Biggles, a pilot in WW1, WW2 and later a sort of air policeman in the Cold War (I'm guessing at some point Biggles and his 'chums' discovered the fountain of youth). As a kid I loved these books and looked them up on wiki to see what ones I remembered. To my great amusement, one of the books was called "Biggles Takes it Rough".
  9. I like Elite. Not played much since end January. Currently in my exploration-fitted Asp Explorer about 250 jumps from Colonia system. A loooong way from colonised space. I've found at least one undiscovered Earth-comparable planet on the way, and hope to make a lot of money selling my exploration data at Jacques station in Colonia. Then... maybe head to the centre of the galaxy, and then on to Beagle's Point. Beagle is one of the furthest systems in the solar system a ship can reach, renamed by the devs after the name of the first player ship to get there. or I may just head back to civilisation. Lack of playing is turning my exploration jaunt into a 5 year mission. Completed Assassins Creed Syndicate, taking a break from the series before starting Origin. Also playing Dragons Age Inquisition. Not bad but Hinterlands nearly broke me. My main game at the moment is Final Fantasy XIV. I love how the servers arent segrageted by PC/console, so can use my pc-originated account/chars on my ps4. Also just bought Final Fantasy 7 on my iphone! Not aure how the small screen will cope when I need to be coordinated, but we'll see. The Ps4 remake is now popping up on amazon

    Re the Russian involvement: To be fair, when you've just shot yourself in the foot and are about to blow off your knee-cap through sheer incompetence, do you really care who gave you the bullets?
