A neat plug from the Medway News team in this week’s issue (October 28): a fun Q&A session for their regular 'Who Are Ya?' feature. Favourite questions: I get annoyed when… 'My lottery ticket doesn’t come up again. There’s definitely a conspiracy – I’m convinced now.' If you could change your name by deed poll, what would you change it to? 'Being a writer, Stieg Larsson. Then I could throw my lottery ticket away.'
You can also now follow Philip Dodd on Twitter – Philip says 'I am endeavouring only to Tweet either news about books and events I’m involved in and some stimulating links and Retweets, as well as offering a regular weekly piece of writing advice…’' To collect Philip’s (obviously highly cultured) pearls of wisdom, click on @thephilipdodd, or any of the Twitter symbols at the bottom of each page on this website.
