Guilt, Overload, and New Year resolutions

Can you blog and write a novel at the same time? Not me. Maybe it’s having four children underfoot (and in the car, and hungry for meals, or help with homework – ie chased upstairs to do some) not to mention the geese, the hens and the ducks…
Meantime I’m dotting the i’s on An Evil Eye, the fourth of the Yashim tales. It is set in Istanbul in 1839, and the action moves between the Princes’ Islands and the sultan’s harem, with a few excursions, as Summer turns to Winter snows.
Apart from the ordinary resolutions, no sooner made than broken, I intend to redesign the blog, or to re-animate the website, or both. Good idea or what?
Happy New Year to you all!
