Another month and another update!  As usual, there’s not much to update you on.  This is mostly due to the fact that any changes to the site, or the way I do things is gradual; small steps, constantly!

You’ll no doubt have noticed the new menu link on the site, “Behind the Scenes” links to a gallery full of behind the scenes photos and video clips.  This gallery will be joined some time later by other galleries, each one dedicated to a short story.  The first gallery...
