What has happened to 'Accidental Gods'? Thoroughly looking forward to reading more about Ines, etc. Hope all is well.

It's in the editing process.... I went off to do an MA in Economics (long story, but basically, if we're going to change the world, we need to change the economy first and I wanted to understand why. I was planning to stand for election at the next GE, and then the election happened at a time when I couldn't stand *and* write my dissertation) Anyway - it's on its way, promise... I'll post on the website when it's due to be published.
