    Good pics. It almost looks like the peloton is on top of the train in the second one. Have you ever been on the sub-reddit “confusing perspective.”?

    Hi... thanks for voting in the 2015 Annual Short Story Competition finals.
    I submitted one of my stories "Happy Endings" into the contest.

    Critiques here on litnet have always been greatly helpful and helped me improve a lot. As you have already read the story, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the story on this thread->

    Sorry to bother you. Thanks for reading the message.

    Hi Sancho! It's good to be missed! Everything is well. My son and I started a business and it is very busy in December. Plus money. When you start a business you have to think and worry about it a lot more. We're doing well, and I will be giving my attention to it's growth, but that shouldn't preclude enjoying litnet, now should it?

    How's your little corner of the world?

    Hi Sancho,

    I have only just found your visitor message re A Tangled Web. Prior to the changed LitNet format, I used to
    get each new message flagged up but not now apparently. I came across your message by chance while looking for something else. Anyhow, I'm really pleased that you liked the book, it's always useful to get feedback; especially when it's positive, although any criticism is helpful.
    Jake Melrose was my own creation but there are plenty of role models in the US so he's not exactly an original. Another manufactured character was my own favourite, Wally Finkelstein but many of the dramatis personae are based on real people. It's true that I did use the leading character as a mouthpiece for certain of my own views but that's pretty much par for the course in novels where personal experience is often to the fore.
    Anyway, thanks for reading it and apologies for not having contacted you earlier. I might be producing another book later this year.

    understand, the last couple of months have been hectic for me.
