Improving navigation and adding content

9 Nov 2008

Since we went live only a week ago we've been working on hard on improving specific areas of it, to try and make it more interesting for you the visitor as you wander round. We've improved navigation through lists of content and filtering, and hooked up the free-text search properly.

We've also added "groups", so if you're in an article that's part of a group—for example, the euphoric Girls' night out—then you can navigate to the other content in that group—in the same example, C. R. Batchelor's confusing Some more attempts at chick-lit".

Finally, there's been a new article already, and there's more nuggets of content coming shortly. And there's another seasonal surprise in the works. More on that soon!

QlL gets a relaunch, and an ongoing facelift

2 Nov 2008

Well, following almost two years of wrestling with a custom site setup, we've finally moved the entire site to an off-the-shelf content management system. Although the move isn't yet entirely complete—it all looks more like a building site than a website—we should be able to add extra functionality and prettiness much more rapidly, with many changes over the coming weeks and days.

There's also another Pocketful of Lies in the pipeline for Christmas: we're itching to start the printing presses rolling with this particular idea. It's something particularly out of the ordinary, so do keep an eye open for more news on that.

We've now sent out copies of Stones and Bones to everyone who requested one. The PDF version should appear on this site in the next few days. In the mean time, for anyone who doesn't have a paper copy, there's some sneak previews available on the site.

Thanks again to all our subscribers, and we hope you have a great Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.

Stones and Bones listing confirmed

11 Nov 2007

Stones and Bones, the second Pocketful of Lies, is currently being polished and honed—remixed, if you like—and we've published a provisional table of contents to tide you over, and verify that short stories of some sort are on their way to whoever so desires.

If you'd like a FREE copy of Stones and Bones, and you live in the UK, and you haven't already done so, feel free to order one now. Delivered to your door, hopefully in time for Christmas, and the only burden of cost for you is that you honour our wishes to pass on this modicum of good will to your fellow men.
