Just back from our Northern Chapter meeting of the Romantic Novelists Association – the first after our winter break. It was good to meet up with writers again, especially those with similar interests. As this was the first meeting of the new session we had a round table of news – what everyone had been doing in the writing world during the winter and what was happening in that world. There were a number of successes with books published and commissioned. Concern about library closures and the impact that might have on publishers,  particulary those who cater mostly for the library trade, was voiced with great feeling. Those with experience of ebooks and the world it can open up for writers was mentioned as a preliminary taster of  next month’s meeting when the mystery of  publishing in this new format  will be fully revealed by Shirley Wells and Linda Acaster. A meeting in such capable hands to look forward to.

    Even a short tour round the Net today showed me ebooks and the future of the library trade seem to be THE topics of the moment in writing and reading circles, and they do, of course, have links. Sometimes I wish we could ignore such preoccupying issues but, as in the latest online Black Horse Extra, you find that is just about impossible!
