It’s been an uneventful couple of weeks since my last update. Last time I was made redundant I had all these grand plans to fill my time but this time, I just feel like I need to be getting a new job, but I don’t like the sound of any of the vacancies I’m finding. I don’t want to work for an evil company! And now I’ve tasted part-time I hours I don’t want to go back to full time either.
Of course, everyone’s talking about Threads. I’m a bit skeptical that the people behind Facebook and Instagram will actually make it a success and not an algorithmic horror show, but since I already am on Instagram, I am giving it a go. You can find me with the usual username @patchworkbunny. I can at least keep in touch with publishing folk
when if Twitter dies its final death.
I’ve also updated my Amazon affiliate shop with this month’s UK Kindle bargains, if anyone is interested in them. And I briefly reached 80% feedback ratio on NetGalley! Then I got a couple of requests accepted and went back down to 79% but staying about 80% now seems feasible in the long term as I am up-to-date on requests from after 2019.
