I've waxed lyrical about the issues faced by new authors desperate to break the glass wall of public relations but for many of us, Friday 13th was truly unlucky. God HATES the 20's! There's something about the 20's isn't there? 1720 Europe was caught by the plague.1820 was pretty good (Florence Nightingale was born as was Anna Sewell the author of Black Beauty) with the exception of a Cholera outbreak. 1820 Spanish Flu appeared and now 2020 brought to you by the Carona Virus.
