Out of Spoons Error: Redo From Start (Linkblogging For 28/2/17)

OK, so at the moment I’m putting the finishing touches on two separate books (my second novel, Devil in the Dark, and the final Beach Boys book), both of which I hope to have out in March. March will also see the release of the first new National Pep track in a decade — a cover version of “(I Prithee) Do Not Ask For Love”. I’m also dealing (from a distance — it’s not me who’s directly affected, but close relatives are) with an ongoing family health crisis and two ongoing non-health-crisis-related family things, trying to be emotionally supportive of my wife as she simultaneously applies for UK citizenship and also has to deal with another stressful thing I can’t talk about (actually, I just remembered — two very different stressful things, neither of which I can talk about), trying to get some freelance work done, and dealing with low blood sugar because I’m trying to prevent myself becoming diabetic by radically changing my diet. Most of this has come to a head in the last week.

So I apologise for not being very up to date with my Patreon comic reviews — they *are* coming — if any other commitments I make fall into the cracks, and especially if I’ve been more than usually unpleasant to be around on social media. Most of this stuff will be resolved soon. For now, you get links.
