The cover blurb for the historical fantasy Half Sick of Shadows, presented as a conversation with Alexa

For all my G+ friends - In case anyone has been following the news from outside the UK Parliament, yes there was a shooting and yes it was within a few hundred metres of my place of work, but it appears to be an isolated incident and the police rapidly closed it down. Westminster tube was promptly shut but other nearby stations including Embankment stayed open. When I came home there was a police presence by Embankment tube but very low key, and things carried on as close to normal as possible.
