Bonjour
« on: September 10, 2009, 10:35:13 pm »
Ca va, tout le monde? (Or should that be: Tout le monde, ca va?)

Am now going to abandon the bad French; don't even know why I started. Actually I do: have a phobia about posting plain old hello on Intro boards...and wanted to look exotic, like.

Anyway. I'm Carole Johnstone. Neither exotic nor French, I am a Scottish writer and reader of Spec fiction, and new member of the lovely BFS. Horror is my main squeeze, but I'm pretty easy, and so far he doesn't seem to mind.

Won't bore you with my (few) writing credits: I've appeared in some magazines and anthologies since 2008, and my first novella was published last month, yay!

Very pleased to meet you all, and hope to make some bon amis  :)

Did I hear something about beer?

Ah - the auld alliance! Hello from another Scottish writer. And if I go back four generations there are Johnstones in my family too. It's a small world country.

Thanks for the welcomes, guys.

Anyone going to FCon this w/e?

[Because I know that somewhere along the line, I definitely heard something about beer ;)]

Ooh, I'm going to have to ask you your real name now--can't remember meeting anyone who made me think sink plunger!
