Keen rat in ratkini
Inspired by summer sights on the beaches of Buenos Aires, Lily has whipped up a pair of swimming togs and insisted that if he wants his lunch Ratty must first try them on. With water rat in his ancestry, Ratty tries to recall an instance when a swim might have been enhanced by the addition of .07 m of green spandex with a twisty-tie doing duty for shoulders.
Like Ratty, we are trying to rationalise what we own as we pack up the house and take as little as possible with us on the next (unknown) leg of our journey.
Meanwhile, fresh thought is going into RMB. Ideas are percolating. Last week I talked with Lorraine Steele of Lighthouse PR ("A guiding light in book publicity" — check out the very cool website) about the challenges of selling ebooks. I appreciated her enthusiasm, open mind, and generosity. We'll be keeping in touch, but meanwhile she's given me plenty of resource ideas to follow up.
