Updating the Accidental Guru Blog

If you've not checked the Accidental Guru blog for a while, I suggest you go over there and find out what the characters are doing in 2011. You'll find updates, news and the odd sneak preview of what's happening in advance of publication.

Look forward to seeing you there,

A quick update

Whilst the weather outside is the wrong side of awful, storm clouds are brewing as Laura finally brings our story to a close in The Accidental Guru. I obviously know how it's all going to end but I've sneeked a peak and the final chapters are packed full of suprises, tears and fun.

In the penulitimate chapter, Mel's son's disappeared and isn't answering his phone. Aurora is just packing her suitcase for a weekend in London where she has some auditions lined up but she ends up in a role she never anticipated. Meanwhile, Paula is in for a shock that turns her life upside down and from which there's no going back.

And as for me, I'm off up to London too (although Aurora doesn't know yet) and I'm about to receive some very good news indeed. Finally I can pay back Neil in a five star way.

So hang on for just a while longer (I know I've been saying this for ages) but the light is at the end of the tunnel. For at least one of us, that light is an oncoming train. Life for all of us is going to be very topsy turvy before it eventually calms down.

If you'd like to read more about what we've been up to over the past few months, why not go direct to The Accidental Guru Blog

Contraceptive Did You Know 4

The oldest English condoms were found whilst archaeologists were excavating the cesspit of Dudley Castle in the 1980s.

They found five animal membranes, probably sheep or pig intestines, that had been cleaned and stretched into shape.

These condoms were thought to date from the mid-600s.
