Check out the new Amazon product clouds below. They’re rather natty aren’t they? Let me know if you like them!

Hover over something and it comes up with info about it too. Isn’t that cool? It’s a real shame that the UK Amazon links are always mostly irrelevant to what people are looking for, but the usual thing counts the same: start shopping using one of the links from there and this site gets 5% of what you spend (you don’t have to buy the thing you click, only start your trip from that click). That helps cover server costs for the year, which are coming up for renewal soon. Yipes! Get shopping!

I’ve had a nice relaxing weekend, working on my novel, sleeping late, playing Lego Star Wars (UK link, US link) with my girlfriend, watching films, and drawing this week’s comics too (of course). I’ve also got a painting I’ve been occasionally going back to for the last six months or-so, and I made a bit of time to work on that too. Yep, it’s been lovely. What have you been up to?

Incidentally, my novel is now over eighty six thousand words. I’ve got three chapters left to write (although I might have an epilogue, I’ll see how I feel when I get there). By Friday I’ll be over the ninety thousand, but I already feel like I’m on the home stretch. I’ve got some big action to get into these last few chapters, and they are the most important to get right, so it’s really exciting to have reached this point. Not long now and the first draft will be completely done! I’m already quite elated by this and I’ve not even got there yet. I think that in less than two weeks I’ll be there!
