Happy St. Patrick's Day - or by the time you get this, Happy post-St.

If you're new to this newsletter list (and there are now 2350 of you, so hello to the newly-arrived) you've probably been wondering what the point of signing up was since nothing ever arrives in your inbox from me. But long-time subscribers know that there are gaps in this correspondence because sometimes there really isn't much in the way of news, or it's simply too hectic here for me to write.
The latter's been the case for months now, but I've finally at least made some updates to the Web site. Rather than repeat the information here, I'm going to give you the pertinent urls and you can go have a look yourselves.
For news about upcoming titles, check out:

For other cover art, you'll find new book covers featured at the first two urls listed above with more available at:
For those of you who have been wondering what order to read the Newford books in, there's finally a list at:
I'd like to thank Cat Eldridge for tracking down the new url for Captive Daughters. You can find more information at:
I've over 500 emails waiting for reply in my inbox at the moment, so if you've written and haven't heard back yet, it's not that I'm ignoring you. I just haven't had the time to get to them all yet.
Wish I had time to list some of the great music I've been listening to
(there's been so much coming out), but there isn't. Still I can't resist
quickly slipping in a couple:
Local (to us, at any rate) guitarist Alex Houghton has a fabulous new CD called Happybody. You can hear samples at:
And Fred Eaglesmith's Falling Stars and Broken Hearts is out March
26th. Order yours today! :) Or visit his spiffed-up site at:
Who'd have thought that a train-loving chicken farmer from Southern Ontario with his own junk car graveyard would be so Net savvy?
Until again, be kind to each other.
