- At some time today, Kindle sales of Remix went over the 5,000 mark, and are currently ticking up like a taxi meter in a traffic jam.
- On Christmas eve, I received my very first cheque from Amazon, for £194.22 (buns for tea!)
- My royalties in the UK for the seven days up to Christmas were £256.62.
- Remix has spent 74 days in the UK Kindle top 100 so far.
- It has 50 reviews on UK Amazon, 41 five star, 8 four star and 1 three star.
- I am amazed and delighted.

There is a website called FutureMe, where you can write an email to be sent to yourself at a date chosen by you in the future.

Or perhaps they got back together...Writers are no more bound by chronology than God; we can nip back in the novel's time and change things just like a Time Lord (how handy that would be in real life). So much power confuses me, particularly with the current book, where alternating chapters deal with each heroine. It's hard to ensure one of them doesn't get to Thursday while her alter ego hasn't moved beyond Wednesday morning.
