Afghan forces an end to a siege in the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul last night. Six civilians died in the attack. 160 people were rescued as Afghan troops fought through the night to regain control of the building. The Taliban are saying they are behind this attack.
Gunmen burst into the hotel at 21.00 local time on Saturday evening. Chaos ensued as bullets rained down on them. The gunmen were armed with rocket-propelled grenades as well as smaller weapons.
One of the guests heard them shout “They were shouting… ‘Don’t leave any of them alive, good or bad. Shoot and kill them all,”
Guests from the top-floor tried to escape from their rooms by tying sheets together to climb down to the next balcony.
Yet another tragic loss of life, thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

This is scary stuff!
I’ve been off work for the last few weeks with this horrid flu, three weeks today. This is the worst one I’ve ever had. Every time you think you’re on the mend it comes back with a chainsaw and wipes you back out again. Yesterday I thought I was back to normal, today not so. I’m going to attempt to go back to work tomorrow. I haven’t been completely useless during this time though, I’ve managed to sort through a lot of files and emails.
I have finished my edit on Sins of the Father which is a follow on from A Boy from the Streets and the cover is ready for the big reveal (coming soon). This came back from my Beta reader with phenomenal feedback. I am also working on the sequel to Is this Love? The whole outline has been written but I’m filling in gaps and researching.
