In between hours of writing I am battling with my new website. I am creating it from scratch, so there is no way it will ever compete with websites produced for the likes of Robert Harris or Kathy Reichs. Having said that, it is looking at least as good as those of some published writers. But so what? At least they are published, unlike me (hey – not sour grapes – good luck to them, it’s tough out there). I am using one of those DIY website building programs, which is rather like learning to program again. Years ago I was a dab-hand at writing in dBase (anyone remember that?).
