Some Links #8

First of all, a science fiction writer from ‘down under’, Simon Haynes, visited with a comment on my Top 10 Dark Science Fiction Movies post. His site promotes his book series, Hal Spacejock, and he has a few chapters online for you to read. I was very impressed by what I read. It reminded me a lot of Harry Harrison. I’ll be looking for his books to become available in the US.

Over at Vandelay Website Design there’s this article, 5 Common Mistakes Made When Hiring a Web Designer. It’s very good advice for anyone considering contracting out on a web site design.

Thanks for the mention - much appreciated.

I just expanded a little on my rather brief comment yesterday, but my response didn’t appear. Not sure whether it’s awaiting clearance or just lost in the ether, but I guess I’ll know when I submit this one ;-)

Hi Simon

I have WordPress set to put any comments with links into moderation as a way to prevent comment spam. Sadly, it’s a necessary annoyance. I’ve approved you comment on the other post.

Any idea on when you’re going to get a US publisher? I think your books would do well over here.

Thanks for stopping by Liz and you’re welcome

I try to find good posts on small to medium sized blogs to give them a mention and a stumble.
