In Scots, a hoolet is an owl:
A booklet is what I’ve just made online for some ridiculous introductory discount, cheaper than printing them off on my home computer. A 20 page collection of some of my photos, with some 6×4 prints thrown in free. No hoolet, this time.
One copy of Here and There in a Hazy World, for now, to see how it turns out. I was hopeless with the software, and would like to share it here when it arrives, to ask those who know more (or just have opinions) on what I should be doing with it.
In other, more exciting news: an extract from Kilea is going to be featured on the webjournal, Necessary Fiction. I am very excited about this, but a little shy, hence the hootlet and the booklet to lead me in. The editor contacted me through twitter, which was surprising and wonderful. I’ll talk more about that later, and point signs in the direction of NF when Kilea goes up, but I can highly recommend going over there now for a read, particularly at this funny research notes piece on conducting research by watching fishing on TV and the non-existence of whales.
