So I’m almost embarrassed to mention this, but I imagine that other authors may also be blogging about it: there’s a vote on the Save Undershaw website for people to indicate their favourite story in Sherlock’s Home
, the book that was published to raise funds to help save Undershaw, Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home, from redevelopment. It contains stories submitted by many different writers and includes Distraction
written by yours truly.
It’s no longer totally clear why they’re running this vote – initially they were saying that the winner/s would be narrated by “a well-known Sherlock Holmes actor” but I’m not sure whether that ‘prize’ is still available (but Ari piddles herself at the mere thought ...)
Aaaanyway, there’s a vote going on and, I dunno, but if you fancied clicking on one of the stories, you could. I mean, if you want to. Up to you which one you choose, you know. *shrugs* It’s a free choice. I’ve already voted, and hand on heart I didn’t vote for my own story!ETA
: Apparently the 'well-known Sherlock Holmes actor' is Nicholas Briggs, better known as the voice of the Daleks. Hmmm ... Do I really want to hear him reading, "SHER-LOCK HAS-N'T HAD A CASE FOR EIGHT-EEN DAYS AND IS JUST A-BOUT READ-Y TO EX-TER-MIN-ATE SOME-ONE ..."?
*shrugs* Hell, yeah!Vote here
