Darryl Sloan, author of the excellent Chion, has posted an honest review of Anne Droyd and Century Lodge on his site. I'm very happy to know he thinks it would translate well to children's television, because those Children's BBC/ITV dramas of the 1980s have exactly the kind of mood I was hoping to evoke when I was writing it.

On the House of Shadows front, I'm two thirds of the way through my first edit. So everything is going the way I had hoped. By the end of February I should have the manuscript ready to give out to my assigned readers and editor.
