The other bit of Drayton-related news is that I've acquired the domain name michaeldrayton.com and am in the beginning stages of assembling a website. My dear wife has provided me with a cascade of ideas, and I'm going to use my developing knowledge of web design to give it a try myself.
The website will link here, of course, and there will be a sample as well as a video clip of me reading a selection. I'm not sure what else right at the moment, but I have to start thinking of it from the perspective of the people who might come to visit it, such as agents, publishers, and well wishers.
I will post updates here as they occur.
