Hi all, I'm Paul, also known as PaulOnBooks; good to have found this group.
 I have a blog at http://paulonbooks.blogspot.co.uk/ and I write on various things at Squidoo: http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/PaulOnBooks   Too much writing for fun and not income before now - but lots of good intentions for 2013 :)
