Which, of course, means on this side of the world, that Spring has arrived and is in full swing.
Perhaps not quite the news the hay-fever sufferers want to hear, but it does mean everything in the garden will start to grow again, and, worst luck, also the weeds.
But, it is getting close to the end of the month, and it has been a reasonably good one.
My private detective, Harry Walthenson, is working stolidly on his new case, and is up to episode 14, with another ready to be published soon.

My serialised stories are progressing, and I’m striving to upload a new episode for each at least once a fortnight.
The other thing that I’ve been working on, basically in those five minutes or so from when my head hits the pillow, till the moment I’m asleep, titles for each of the stories.
For the first, currently labelled with ‘I’ve always wanted to go on a treasure hunt’, I’ve been toying with the word ‘map’ and something witty, like ‘A Map to Trouble’, but it’s not exactly attention-getting. It needs more thought.

For the second, currently labelled with ‘What happens after an action-packed start’, it starts in the desert, and will end in a dusty, desolate village in Africa, I’d like to have the word ‘Redemption’ in it. It’s now finished, and a title needs to be found soon.

The others need more thought, as yet, and I know a title will pop out at me as I get further along with the story.

There’s two new episodic stories coming, another one set during World War 2, involving a rescue, and one dealing with the investigation of a crime with a suspect that has all three criteria to be the number one suspect, and might be called, ‘Motive, Means, and Opportunity’.
Also the ‘Being Inspired, Maybe’ stories are continuing, the latest story, Number 127 has been published here: https://bit.ly/2QXejWW
And the next will be available in a day or so. The stories are the fun part of my week, as they usually get written while I’m waiting to collect my youngest granddaughter from school.
As for the novels, one is at the editor, and one is in mid-re-write.
If only there were more hours in a day!!!
