    I used to be indecisive…

    …Now I’m not so sure. I know, it’s an old joke, but it’s about the right standard for my sense of humour. So, if dithering were an Olympic event, I’d win gold every time. You may be aware I’ve just published my first (and last) book for the year, and I’ve been trying to work out what to do for the best regarding where I sell it. Since January, all my other books have been exclusive to Amazon.
