Literary London: Loncon3

The last of the conventions! Until Fantasycon in a few weeks…

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m struggling to get through this week. It’s been a busy one here, and given that my children are due to start school again in just a couple of weeks (they got out the last week in June), I don’t think a reprieve is on it’s way. 802 more words
