Welcome to 2009! A New Year and a new Inkpot! My green fur and grumpy mood has gone. I can safely say I have suffered the last of my grinchitious (although I'm still coughing a bit). The New Year has started on a high point for me with the release of the latest issue of Necrotic Tissue featuring my micro fiction 'The Vilage Shop'. Check it out (it's on page 65). What's even better is that Valinora Troy's story 'Reflections' also appears on the very same page! In case you didn't know, she's my sister, so not only do we appear in the same publication but on the very same page! Well done Valpot. Ok, I think I have used up my quota of exclamation marks for the year. I'll be back later to talk about New Year resolutions and predictions. I hope you are all enjoying the beginning of 2009. Ah, smell that new born air.
