Just a wee blog that I have shamelessly stolen from my mate Stan. He is the Stan of Stanley Trollip who is the Stanley of Michael Stanley... did you follow that? All you really need to know is that he is 50% of a number one best selling crime writing duo- the creators of the Detective Kubu novels. Funnily enough I was talking to a gem cutting expert - no doubt there is a proper name for such an occupation- this man is sometimes called in by De Beers in South Africa to advise them on how to cut a certain stone. He travels the world lecturing, consulting, going down holes in the ground and analyzing what he finds there. Or more often looking down a microscope and devaluing what he finds there! He is a huge Kubu fan - saying that the writers really capture what life is like in Botswana.
So here is what Stanley has to say this week on the blog site. You can click on the link and leave your comments- it will be interesting to see what people say so feel free to join in, even if you are not a follower of MIE.....
The MURDER IS EVERYWHERE blog has been appearing for nearly four years. There have been 1253 blogs, including this one, and about 1,200,000 page views. The blog now enjoys over 30,000 page views a month.
For this, we all thank you, the readers.
Maintaining a blog for this long is hard work, but we all enjoy it very much, although there are times when we cuss the blog deadline because of other life events.
Now we think it is time to ask you to tell us what you think. Please take a few minutes and give us some feedback.
I blog on Fridays, tomorrow I am talking about Jimmy Page, Aleister Crowley and the scary goings on at Boleskin house. But maybe not in that order!
Sneak a peek at the MIE website... but be warned, it's habit forming.
