    My pleasure. And you're quite right, sometimes the greatest 'success' we can have is in pleasing, helping or - in rare cases - inspiring other people!

    Ah yes. The first royalties usually come as a bit of a disappointment. No Ferrari yet...

    Yes, still here, Kate. Dropping in and out for as long as people want to chat.

    You speak sense, Hywela. Edits are a bit like childbiirth (if I can be so indelicate). Painful but worth it.

    Good question. It's a moving target, really. I think Goodreads is pretty popular at the moment, as is Facebook; they both have a degree of permanence/depth which you don't quite get with twitter,...

    Yes. This. I have a lovely little book called "Rotten reviews" which is full of people slagging off classic books. Really cheers me up to see people saying that Dickens will never be popular. :wacko:

    Kate

    I'm sure you can benefit, because the sort of things I'm talking about won't change. However, I won't be looking at the process of submitting or marketing. I'm looking at the unexpected...
