I've ben progressing my archive project. Organising the last volumes and collections, that will bring the project to a close by the end of the year, with a little luck. I'm discovering that this work comes with obligations, as it is not enough just to organise a certain amount of work into a given number … Continue reading With progress comes obligation.

I'm finding it difficult to believe, and I'm not sue what I'll do with myself! What am I talking about? I've submitted a total of 8 projects for Ingram Spark to print for me. New books, that is.
