In Praise of Promotion – Blog Tours

BlogThere is something that every author has to face up to these days and that is blogging.  Not only on your own personal blog – which has become indispensable in enabling communication with your readers and fans – but also when writing for host blogs during … Blog Tours!!

This is something that can be a daunting task for even the most accomplished and prolific authors.  Not only do they find it intimidating, but it often results in brain freeze when they have to write a guest post.  Almost everyone confesses to finding it easier if someone tells them what to write, but getting to pick a topic of their own choice?  Terrifying!

It really needn’t be though.  After all, we write for a living.  We stare down white pages and fill them with words with a frequency that would stun most people.  So why does a “Guest Blog Post” scare us so much?  Perhaps it’s the unfamiliar ground of being hosted on someone else’s blog? After all, if you sound silly or goofy or not terribly eloquent on a particular day on your own blog, that’s safe ground… but on someone else’s blog it could spell disaster.  Perhaps it’s the fear of not having anything interesting to say?

Let me offer some simple advice for dealing with this problem.

Answering a Q&A for a guest blog

  • Answer the questions in as much detail as possible.  This gives readers something to read.  “Why did you want to be an author?” “I like to write” isn’t nearly as interesting as “I have always loved writing and when I discovered that you could actually make money following your passion, even if you still had a day job to pay the bills, I was hooked.” See?  Try to imagine what you would want to read about an author you admire.
  • Answer all the questions.
  • Don’t be afraid to have a little fun and inject some humour into your answers.

A Guest Blog – With suggested topics

  • If you’ve been given a list of potential topics, pick the one which appeals to you most and see if there’s a word limit.  Most blogs would prefer at least 300 – 500 words so that Google will find the blog in searches.  Rather write too much than too little.

A Guest Blog – With no suggested topics

  • Remember that this tour is promoting a specific title or you as an author brand.  Relate your post in some way to either your book or your brand.
  • What would you find interesting as a reader?  Write about those kinds of things.
  • Ask yourself what you would tell 1 new writer if you sat down over coffee…
  • Potential topics include: Your writing space, writing routines, familiars (pets), why coffee / tea really is from the Gods, what can’t you live without, top 10 favourite destinations, musical inspirations, soundtrack to this book, worst part of writing / editing, favourite thing in the story, favourite characters, deleted chapters (behind the scenes sneak peaks for this blog), etc.  Really endless options
  • Have fun with it and don’t get too stressed out.

Hopefully that will help you a little.

Until next time…

Meet Malael from Bad Dreams by Brantwijn Serrah

Click HERE to orderBad Dreams 200x300 this erotic thrill ride NOW!!

Priya can’t sleep, but that’s not the worst of her troubles.  She’s starting to hallucinate, and every night she’s seeing a very wicked male…

The doctor calls it “sleep paralysis.” Her husband doesn’t realize anything’s wrong. But night after night, Priya finds herself stuck between sleep and waking, perfectly aware and perfectly helpless, as a looming dark creature hovers over her.

He promises pleasure so sinful, Priya can’t resist. Bound in his coils, she’s starting to lose herself…

***

It should come as no surprise that we’re going to be offering you something a little unusual in October… after all, there’s nothing quite as good as Halloween and all the wonderful opportunities that it presents for spine tingling fun!! Today, we’re chatting to Malael, Incubus of the First Blood, from Bad Dreams by Brantwijn Serrah. Let’s sit down and see what makes him tick.

Welcome Malael and thank you for joining us today.

Pleasure to meet you. I believe my sister, Raschael, has also had an…”intimate”…chat with you. Shame she didn’t take more advantage of it.

I’m not sure how much advantage she could’ve taken of it. So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

The deliciously wicked challenge of telling my story. I believe someone challenged her to write something ‘as transgressive as she dared”. And of course, I was there to whisper in her ear, “….I can help with that.”

Aah, so you’re behind this seriously naughty tale of hers? I’m not sure that’s a bad thing… What would you say it was that drew you to your mate?

Incubi, naturally, take many, many playmates. We rarely discover one so…extraordinary…that we wish to bring them to ascension. Make them like us, that is. Priya—my prey over the course of “Bad Dreams”—had a very delectable affect on me. A middle-aged woman, her life so neat and well-ordered, her lusts so…repressed. I think she might be worth keeping around, if only to reap all her wonderful, overflowing, untapped desires.

She certainly sounds like the perfect match for you and from the look on your face, you’re pleased with Brantwijn’s work… Here’s a great question for you! Where was the wildest place you seduced your partner?

My sister prefers churches, but I am less aroused by the irony. I prefer to take my prey in its own warren, invading its home as I make it mine. In “Bad Dreams”, I delight in coming to Priya and making her beg for me, while her husband is only a few rooms away…

There’s a certain element of terror to that.  That nowhere is really safe from you.  So let me rather ask you a safer question, do you prefer boxers, briefs or commando on a man?

I like other men in boxers. Oh, does that surprise you?  Incubi are, shall we say… without orientation. I can feed as easily from one sex as I can the other, and when I do hunt men, I like them in boxers. Briefs make a man look like he never grew into his “big boy” pants.

I have to say, that’s certainly one of the best reasons I’ve heard in a while.  So if Priya wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick she can play?

My partners do not seduce me. I seduce them.  And when she wants me, all she has to do is get on her knees and beg. Profusely.

Hmmm… I’d best leave that one alone in case Domino decides to punish me for answering…. Instead, how about you tell me  what the one place is on your partner’s body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

Underneath layers of business-suit style repression, Priya is a shameless little wanton. I reduce her to senselessness by going straight for the honey pot.

Sounds like you’ve found a really responsive woman!  Not a bad discovery all in all.  Here’s your chance to spill on Brantwijn… What was one of the most embarrassing things she did to you in “Bad Dreams”?

She did somewhat insinuate that Priya might have been satisfied by taking a human boy-toy…as though he would be able to help her escape my seduction. I laugh so hard at that idea I even gave Priya permission to try it. She was not in any way interested.

Poor Brantwijn, I’m sure she meant well… Is there anything else you would like to add?

Yes. Are you doing anything later tonight?

Yes, totally occupied!

Time for you all to go and order your copy to warm up your Friday night!!!

Chat soon,

What’s a Release Party?

No comments yet

Categories: Author Tips, Fresh Blog, Musing, Tags: , , , , , ,

Aaah, my friends.  If I had a Dollar for every time someone has asked me this over the past year or so, I could probably take a nice holiday somewhere exotic!  I have to confess that coming from a more traditional print background, the first time I heard the term “online release party” I was a little stumped too, but I have to say… they’re so much fun!  Not least because you can stay curled up on your sofa in your squishiest pyjama’s and a duvet while you party the time away with friends.

How?  Simple… The party takes place on Facebook.  It’s completely digital – so no hassles with prep or cleanup and all it requires is a bit of planning for the host and for guests to show up at the appointed time!

Tell you more?  But of course!  So, your book is being published and it’s releasing in two weeks.  Well, obviously you want to draw attention to the book in the hopes of boosting sales.  Naturally you will do this by blogging, touring, posting on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and anywhere else that will take you.  Now you need to find a way to engage with your potential and existing fans.  Since your book is an eBook, the easiest way to do this is in the digital realm.  What you need to do is set up an “event” on Facebook.  It’s really very simple.  Name the event “Domino’s Release Day Shindig” and set the times for the event.  In the description, give details e.g. “To celebrate the release of my newest book (title here) on Friday 26 Sept, I’ll be having a party with prizes, giveaways and plenty of cool goodies.” Anything you think will entice people.  Next, invite your friends and fellow writers and ask them to share the event.

Now… You come up with some fun trivia posts, some give-away questions, etc and decide on prizes.  A few copies of your books, a $2 publisher gift card, perhaps even some solid, real world swag… whatever makes you happy.  Remind people about the event during the week leading up to it and encourage people to attend.  On the appointed day, at the appointed hour, be online and start the party.  You will be the driving force behind it, from posts and comments to pictures and links to music on YouTube.  Even better if you have one or two friends who can inject some fun into it all.

If you’re nervous, share your party with a fellow author releasing on the same day.  That doubles your potential reach and halves your stress in one move.  The important thing is not to get too downhearted if you only have a small turnout for your first party.  5 enthusiastic people can be more of a blast than 30 half-hearted participants.  And ultimately, you need to have fun with it!!

Go forth and party!

Until next time…

For One Night Only 200x300Click HERE to order your copy now!!

Kate Powell only went and fell for the soldier she’d met just once before he had to jet off on a year-long posting overseas.

Seven months in, and Kate is hornier than a blue wildebeest in mating season with only her battery-powered friend for relief. Her skills as a pen-pal scale new heights, but then a text message arrives out of the blue.

Corporal Mark Butler is back in the country for one night only, and Kate isn’t about to let the opportunity pass her by. After all, who needs a vibrator when the real thing comes calling?

*Allie has chosen to donate all royalties from ‘For One Night only’ and ‘Serviced: Volume 1′ to the UK charity Help For Heroes*

***

Allie A. Burrow writes sensual contemporary love stories that are both sweet and romantic but with a liberal dash of heat added. When not burning up the pages, you’ll mostly find her marauding as Aurelia B. Rowl where she pretends to be far more sweet and innocent and writes young adult, new adult, and contemporary romance stories.

She lives on the edge of the Peak District in the UK with her very understanding husband, their two fantastic children, and their mad rescue mutt who doesn’t mind being used as a sounding post and source of inspiration. Too often lost in her own world, she regularly wows her family with curious, hastily thrown together meals as a result of getting too caught up with her latest writing project… or five!… and she has developed the fine art of ignoring the housework.

To find out even more about Allie you can visit her website www.allieaburrow.com. You can also check out her main writing persona, Aurelia, by visiting www.aureliabrowl.com

Excerpt

Safely enveloped in the darkness of the alcove, the bass pounded through the soles of Kate’s boots and echoed inside her ribs. She lunged and caught Mark’s face in her hands, pulling him down to kiss him, her tongue forcing a route past his surprised lips and delving into the wetness of his mouth. “Take me,” she breathed. Her hand stole over the carved ridges of his stomach, following the arrow-shaped path down to where it disappeared inside his jeans. “Please…”

His mouth opened and closed and he glanced over his shoulder at the heaving dance floor. “But—”

“No buts.” She reached for his fly, undoing it quickly, but instead of finding another layer of clothing, his dick sprang free and elicited a gasp from her throat. “I need this”—she fisted her hand around it, stroking him, and his eyes squeezed shut, his jaw jutting out as his head tipped back—”I need you…inside me”—she swirled her hand over the engorged head and his entire body jerked—”now.”

Mark’s eyes flew open and even in the dim lighting, she saw his pupils dilate, the naked desire on his face almost frightening. His fingers skipped over the back of her neck and lost themselves in her hair, getting tangled in the shoulder-length tresses she had loosely pinned up. The gentle touch was at odds with the fierce hunger in his gaze. Electric shocks surged through the many nerve endings, connected directly to her core, and she had to lean into his hand, let him support the weight of her head, suddenly too heavy to keep upright under her own steam.

He tilted it back and locked his gaze onto hers, issuing her with a challenge. “If we’re going to do this”—he leaned into her, his lips rasping her ear—”right here, right now”—his gravelly voice resonated within her, hungry, powerful—”we’re doing it my way.”

Staggered by the transformation from man to soldier, her need for him ramped up another notch and it was all she could do to move her head the tiniest fraction. His eyes searched hers for an answer, the wait agonizing, until finally, he dipped his head. Achingly tender, his lips flitted over the top of hers, like rose petals blowing in the wind. Her eyelids fluttered closed, cracking under the strain of keeping them open.

Sweet, yet maddening, Kate yearned to take control and deepen the kiss, but he broke off every time she tried before catching her lower lip between his teeth as if to punish her. Their sharp edges sank into her swollen flesh without breaking the surface, his tongue immediately soothing any pain. The all-conquering, take-no-prisoners warrior had arrived.

Meet Rue from A Whisper of Rue by Decadent Kane

WhisperOfRue200Click HERE to order your copy now!!

When a package magically shows up in Rue’s home, she’ll have two choices. Either do as Gage demands, or standby as an elf is tortured.

After Rue walks into her home, there’s a magical earpiece and a mysterious letter waiting for her. On the other end of that earpiece is a tortured soul, whose life is on the line if she doesn’t do exactly as Gage Evans, the voice in the earpiece, says. Pissed that the male elf has her at his bidding because she can’t just let someone die, she follows his instructions. They not only lead her to the tortured elf, but the killer of her father as well.

When she lets loose a powerful magic and is thrown in a dungeon with Mr. Evans, she’ll have to keep control of her senses to figure her way out of a place with no doors, or windows, and damnit why wasn’t she born with the elven gift of blinking magically away?

***

Decadent Kane is hosting a book signing on 4 October, so it’s my great pleasure to introduce you all to Rue from A Whisper of Rue ahead of your opportunity to meet her author in person!! Let’s see what makes Rue tick.

Hi Rue and welcome.  I know you’ve already had an outing in the print release, but I’m really pleased to be able to help you promote your story.  Tell us what got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Not sure, perhaps my unwillingness to find a mate? Or that I’m a strong female in the realm.

You reckon she had to write your story because you were being stubborn?  Sounds like a good reason to me!  What was it that drew you to your mate in the end?

Ha! Mates…they are for other females. I don’t need a mate and if I did I would draw him in not the other way around.

Yes Ma’am.  Well, how about you tell us where the wildest place was that you seduced your partner?

In a tree. I felt a bit sorry for those walking below…

Sounds like you’d need to have a great sense of balance…. *grin*.  Do you prefer your men to wear boxers, briefs or go commando?

Commando. Definitely commando.

A woman who knows what she likes!  If your partner wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

Seduce my mind…I’m curious by nature….

Well, I have to say that I like a challenge.  So what was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in A Whisper of Rue?

I would say having the villain walk in on me naked and expecting me to fight him.

Yeah, that was a bit mean!  I can’t wait to read the story to see how that turned out.  I hope that you’ll all be buying your copy now too!

Chat soon,

The Gift 200x300Click HERE to order your copy now!!

Daniel was bound to love Sheryl’s out-of-the-box anniversary idea…wasn’t he?

It’s Sheryl and Daniel’s tenth anniversary, and Sheryl is compelled to get her beloved soul mate the gift of all gifts. Discarding her normally self-reserved persona, she has a nude portrait commissioned. He was bound to love it…wasn’t he?

 ***

I’m so thrilled to be able to introduce you all to Sheryl from The Gift by Ishabelle Torry.  Get comfy and let’s fine out what makes her tick.

Hi Sheryl and welcome to the Breathless Blog.  Why not start by telling us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Don’t tell her I said this, but I think it was my courage to suck it up and take it all off.

ALL off? Wow… that’s definitely something to take note of! So what was it that drew you to your mate?

It’s a shorter list to name what didn’t, which is nothing. Daniel was, and still is my high school sweetheart.

Proof yet again that you really can meet your soulmate in high school… and from the look on your face, you can be very happy! ’Fess up… where was the wildest place you seduced Daniel?

Knowing my Daniel, probably in his imagination!

You reckon you’ve been hotter in his dreams?

You’ll have to read and find out *grin*

Fair enough… do you prefer boxers, briefs or cmmando on a man?

Definitely Commando.

There’s something to be said about that.  So if he wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

HMMM—I love bubble baths.

Hmm… and if you want to return the favour… what is the one place on your partner’s body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

Everywhere! After eighteen years together, there isn’t a spot I haven’t caressed and loved in some way.

True, I’d be surprised if you could find anything new at this stage *grin* I’m guessing he’s not complaining though?  What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in the gift?

Oh…er…this I cannot give away without ruining the awesome outcome. *winks* you’ll just have to read the story!

Rats, now I’m going to have to wait until Friday!!  Is there anything else you’d like to add before we go?

Yes! Sometimes the greatest love stories aren’t based on how you’ve met, but instead blossom as time passes. Just like Daniel and I!

I’m really excited to read this one and I know you should be too!

Until next time,

Domino xx

Meet Charlie Jergens from Take a Chance on Me by Mia Epsilon

takeachanceonme_200x300Click HERE to order your copy now!!

After a near fatal accident leads to one incredible night of amazing sex, Christine and Charlie take the leap from friends to lovers.

Christine has battled many demons in the last few years. Charlie has always been her confidant and support. When Charlie refuses to answer emails or texts after an embezzling scheme arises at work, Christine must come to terms with not only losing a fabulous lover and her best friend but her job as well.

Charlie carries his own scars when it comes to women. Yet there’s something about Christine which brings out his protective side and makes him hope for love he’s wanted for years.

Christine and Charlie must work together to catch the thief before they can secure a love of a lifetime. Can they catch the embezzler before they lose not only their jobs and each other, but their lives as well?

***

This week is packed with awesome releases, but I told Domino she had to back off this one because I’ve been wanting to hang out with Mia Epsilon for months… I had to promise to make a batch of brownies and coffee in bed for a week, but it was totally worth it!!  I’ve had such a wonderful time chatting to Mia and now I’d like you all to help me welcome her hero, Charlie Jergens, from Take a Chance on Me which releases on Friday.  Let’s find out more about him and what makes him tick.

Hi Charlie and thanks for joining us.  Why don’t you start by telling us about yourself and what got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Hmm, probably the fact she wrote about Christine’s daughter Anna in her first book release, Wedding Belle Blues. Though to be honest, she wrote about Christine and me first. Anna and Robin just beat us out the release gate. Our author took a trip to Australia and had an emergency landing in Hawaii. I knew she’d fall in love with my Islands and have to tell my story. So I egged her on a bit.

An emergency landing doesn’t sound great, but if you have to have an emergency landing, Hawaii isn’t a bad place to do it.  I’m thinking she didn’t need a lot of encouragement to write your story though from the grin on her face.  How about you tell us what it was that drew you to your mate?

She’s a hard worker and she’s completely technology challenged. It’s adorable. She finally learned about Word, Excel and Power Point, but good God she can’t figure out computers or smart phones or iPads. Though she did have an incident where I had to promise never to tease her about this challenge ever again.

It’s not nice to tease someone for not being up to date with technology… especially if they’re trying to learn at least *grin*.  Here’s a naughty question for you, where was the wildest place you seduced her?

Mmm, so many come to mind, since I can’t keep my hands off her. The small ledge behind the waterfall on our beach, where’s there’s just enough room for me to push her against the rock wall and…well, you get the picture I think. *winks*

That certainly sounds wild, exotic and actually quite romantic!  Do you prefer boxers, briefs or commando?

Commando. I live in Hawaii where less is more.

I’ll have to bear that in mind if I visit. I’m wondering, if she wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick she can play?

Laugh, smile, or toss her hair. Christine also has this way of tilting her head just so and parting her lips so I immediately think of her mouth all over my…

That’ll do it every time *grin*. So, fair play, what’s the one place on your partner’s body that you know will drive her wild-in and out of bed?

Right behind her knees. Also just below her ear, right before her shoulder bone.

Behind the knees is an unusual one and one of my personal favourites, but I digress!  Spill, what was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Take a Chance on Me?

She really didn’t do anything completely embarrassing because I edited out the ‘desk in the office caught by the boss’ scene while she was asleep one night and then whispered about a new criminal in her ear the next day so she didn’t notice the missing scene until after her editor gave her the line edits. *whistles innocently*

You know she’ll find a way to punish you for that eventually right?  Never mess with the writer!  *grin*.  Is there anything else you would like to add?

Every successful relationship begins with friendship and stays successful if you also remain friends. If you’re planning a wedding and want to escape to the most romantic place on earth, call us at ‘Weddings by C and C’. We’ll make all your dreams come true.

So true!  Friendship is one of the strongest foundations.  I think you guys are going to really love this one!

Chat soon,

Meet Marcus Zankoriewicz from Fire on Ice by Lisa A. Adams

Fire on Ice 200x300Click HERE to order your copy now!!

Marcus Zankoriewicz is a leader in the National Hockey League… and has just announced he’s gay.

Facing a firing squad of reporters accusing him of adultery with another player’s wife, Marcus Zankoriewicz sees there’s only one way out. He must make the announcement he knew would come one day.

But, this is hockey. Well known for its rough and manly men, Marcus must prepare himself for an onslaught of changes that threaten his career and love life.

***

I’d like to welcome hockey star Marcus Zankoriewicz from Fire on Ice by Lisa A. Adams.  I’m really looking forward to finding out what makes him tick.

Hi Marcus, why don’t you start by telling us about yourself and what got you in the crosshairs for your author?

I’ve known Lisa for a while now. We met at her first live hockey game a few years ago. Though, I wasn’t sure if my story was ready to be told just then. So, I sat back and waited just to see how long she could go without spilling the beans. I was surprised it was this long to be frank. 

She can be quite a patient woman when it comes to writing… clearly, you’ve been quite patient about waiting.  It was worth it though… Now tell me, what was it that drew you to your mate?

Well, I’d have to say it was his playfulness. His flirty way and gorgeous backside was a great turn on. But, that being said… having a partner that shared my love of the ice was probably the clincher.

Yeah, having a common interest is definitely a turn on.  A little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced him?

Since coming out to the public, I’ve been a little braver about being in public. But, I never thought I would ever seduce my partner in the team shower. Thank goodness no one was around.

The team shower?  Wow… you must’ve been feeling brave.  After all, you could’ve ended up giving the rest of the team a show!  Here’s one I never understand… Do you prefer boxers, briefs or commando?

I’m a boxer briefs man myself. It helps with any friction on the thighs and is easily hid while in my Flyers uniform.

Good to know *grin*.  Here’s a great question, if he wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

I’m a sucker for games. But all of that amounts to foreplay. Skating on the ice can be just as exhilarating and playful. Put the two together, and I’m sure to be willing and ready with just a sway of his back side.

Foreplay is good.  Foreplay is great for prolonging the excitement.  What is the one place on your partner’s body that you know will drive him wild-in and out of bed?

Honestly, this relationship is very new, and I’m having a wonderful time finding out all the little things that make Justin tick. But, I have noticed that he does this cute little shiver thing when I walk behind him and graze my hand across the top of his ass and around his side. I think that’s definitely a sweet spot for him.

Well, it’s subtle and you can use it in public, so that’s a good one to know about… especially if you want to leave a function and need him to get your drift *grin*.  Here’s your chance to spill on Lisa…. what was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Fire on Ice?

I can’t believe she brought up the pictures from the press. I mean I understand that you have to start a story somewhere, but Jacobson is a great friend, and the press really blew those pictures out of proportion.

Pictures?  Care to elaborate?

You’ll just have to read the book *grin*

Fair enough… is there anything else you would like to add?

Go Flyers!

What an awesome interview.  I think you’ll really enjoy this one!!

Chat soon,

0007843179K-1920x1280There’ve been a number of stories doing the rounds lately on the internet and on social media.  Stories particular to the world we inhabit, the world of writers, publishers and readers.

Social Hostages
You may have read something recently about the fact that authors, artists, musicians etc have been locked out of their Facebook accounts for using “false” names.  The truth of the matter is that I can see where this move could genuinely be seen to protect Facebook and their users.  Imagine if you will that a sexual predator, male, 43, is sitting at home behind the profile of your average 14 year old girl.  We would like to think that our kids know better than to talk to strangers, but somewhere along the line they don’t see the danger in “digital” strangers.  Especially if they happen to meet in a One Direction page … see the problem?  From that perspective, I can see some logic to Facebook insisting that you are a REAL person.

However, what Facebook has failed to consider is that artists, authors, musicians, performers etc often make use of a “stage name” for safety reasons, privacy reasons or purely because it’s nice to be someone else for a while.  For authors, this allows us to write erotica and children’s books without compromising either “person”.  These talented individuals have suddenly found themselves locked out of their accounts unless they agree to change their names to their “real” names.  In some cases, these accounts ARE in their real names which adds to the frustration.  How is it that “Simeon dontbothermewithyourgamecrap Jones” is fine, but “Aurora St John” can get locked out??

Facebook has provided a platform.  A way to communicate, share, promote and interact.  These restrictions – however well intentioned – feel a bit like a pen manufacturer telling us what we can and cannot write with their pens.

Failure to Communicate
I will NOT mention any names here because I don’t feel that it’s appropriate, but there have been a lot of column inches dedicated recently to some financial and communication issues being faced by certain parties in the industry.  There is a lot of heresay, a lot of conjecture and a lot of rumour mongering.

Let me say this.  No matter what the cause is… this is NOT a situation that anyone would want to find themselves in, no matter what side you find yourself on.  The situation is complex enough without extra people jumping in.  I wouldn’t normally talk about this but with all the chatter online, it seemed silly to ignore it all.  This is all I’m going to say and now I’m just going to wait to see what happens next.

Chat soon,

Dominic
