I apologies for being British

Interesting reading in the UK press about the demise of ‘Women’s Commercial Fiction’ – why does the UK (press) always criticize successful industries and people? The publishing industry still generates massive tax revenues for the government (either directly or indirectly). Is this a smart move in times of crippling recession?

The beauty of the Internet, art (including  the book industry) is that we can all lose ourselves in fantasy and dream worlds – surely this is a tonic not a crime?

Leave the arts alone! – after all we have little funding!

Get real! We are all taking a hit on sales, houses, pay packets etc. and any profit is a bonus for the National Debt.

As the figures prove. Women’s commercial fiction still huge despite downturn.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
