This is it then. Hard Brexit. We’re off the cliff. No longer the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, but a Disunited Kingdom of Tory Brexitland. There have been indications for weeks now that they’d take us out of the single market (very deliberate phrasing; they have a democratic mandate to invent whatever Brexit

Wonderfuless occurring at the moment, in no particular order: A BRILLIANT, inspiring Indie publishing bootcamp on Saturday, have been brainstorming and scribbling and generally rubbing my hands together in glee ever since… The HOLLYWOODLAND COVER CONTEST!! The designs submitted have been just stunning, and it’s been torture trying to narrow them down!
