About this blog

This is a window into the weird world of Anglicanism, as experienced on a Cathedral Close. Has anything much happened since Trollope's Barchester Chronicles? You will still see the 'canon in residence' hurrying across to choral Evensong, robes flapping, as the late bell chimes. But look carefully and you will notice he is checking the football score on his iPhone as he runs. This is also a writer's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the novelist's life. And it's a fighter's blog. It charts the agony and ecstasy of the judo mat. Well, the agony, anyway.

Heatwave in the Diocese of Lindchester.  After a two week break we are reunited with our friends over on my other blog: http://catherine-fox-novel.blogspot.co.uk/

Monthly Instalments

Just before I went on holiday, a friend asked me whether I had a version of Acts and Omissions that was one entire document, rather than lots of itty-bitty annoying instalments that appear in reverse order on the blog.  (She phrased it more politely.)  What she wanted was the chance to upload it all onto her Kindle and read it on holiday.

The answer was 'No'.  But I do appreciate that unless you joined the programme in January, and have remained a loyal weekly reader, the obstacles in the path of reading Acts and Omissions are now considerable.  With this in mind, I have collected the instalments into monthly batches and posted these over on the other blog: http://catherine-fox-novel.blogspot.co.uk/

Hope this helps.  Can't quite believe that we've reached the halfway point.  Thanks for your company, and all the comments you've left, as well as the banter on Twitter.  What I'm hoping, of course, is that before the year is up, this blog will have attracted the attention of a publisher.  If you are a publisher, Yoohoo!  Over here!
