And a Very Happy New Year!

"On the radio, the shouts and cheers and high-pitched whoops have finally subsided to allow Big Ben the space to toll the hour. It feels almost religious, this ritual pause. You can sense the crowd waiting, listening, a mass drawing in of collective breath as those ancient bells ring out with dark, metallic gravity. They seem to grow louder with each peal. They seem to go on endlessly, as if marking so much more than twelve o’clock ..."

From 'The Dawning', to be published January 23rd!!!
:-D

Wishing Everyone an Excellent and Exciting New Year - may 2010 bring you all that you desire, and more xx
