First snow on the mountains and on the hills. There was a fierce frost on the grass, and I needed a nose warmer walking the dog.

The gurus and marketing experts tell me this newsletter is not personal enough and that you, my readers, want screeds of chat about me, my life and my writing.

I feel this newsletter is long enough. I get plenty of the chatty ones from my writer colleagues and never read them! So if you want more personal chat would you kindly email me - pdrlindsay@slingshot.co.nz - with MORE CHAT in the subject line and I will try to oblige with a newsletter just for you. Otherwise we can carry on with a pretty picture and a hello, here are some good books, goodbye, usual style of thing. And no sales pitch, just a hurray my new book's out, when one is.If you want to buy it that's up to you.
