I’m taking a short break from the retelling of Joshua Slocum’s book Sailing Alone Around the World to blog about my own words. Occasionally, I Google the titles of my books to see if there is any news about them. I was pleased to find that someone on has added my story Mus musicus to their list of favourites, giving it 5 stars, despite the fact that I think the cover image is Rattus rattus rather than Mus musculus.

You may have come across it on Kindle or at the wide range of distributors supported by Smashwords, but it’s only available now from my store at Lulu. As an English writer I found it too complicated to get involved with the large American distributors. They might have the widest reach, but the process of acquiring a US tax ID is so wearisome and the ever-moving thresholds for receiving payment make me think that I will never see any money from them. At least I know that I get paid by Lulu.

I found this review of Mus musicus a while ago, but it bears repeating:
