I must apologise to those Canadians who read Book I of Over the Hills and Faraway ( and to those who haven't!) for downgrading Alberta from a Province to a state and 'inventing' a non existing university!Pure folly on my part in not checking the facts. I can't promise not to make similar errors in future but I certainly will be more careful.
Other than that I am rather pleased at how the story has been received and I thank those who downloaded the story and those who voted, and particularly those who got in touch and pointed out ,very politely,the error of my way.
Book II is in the edit phase and Book III is in rough draft state(province?);probably be a month or two before the next book is posted , maybe this time without any factual errors!
Meantime I'm carrying on with a third story in the Linkage series ;hopefully I will get this completed by the summer,when I shall be visiting Canada; but will steer well clear of Alberta lest I get ridden out of the Province on a rail.
