For weeks now I have been following posts on the internet, devouring anything to do with publishing your novel and getting your baby out there. From all this reading, time and time again (please excuse the cliché), a simple message has been delivered.

Technical marvels and suspension of disbelief

Earlier this week Angela and I wandered into our local cinema and armed with suitable munchies, we watched Angels and Demons. All was well until they got to the part set in CERN, which as any of you who have seen the film will know that it is right at the start of the film. [...]

Alternative thoughts; Best Selling or Best Written
