Just a very quick update to say that the kindle version of my little philosophy book Introducing Happiness is on sale over on Amazon.co.uk for the next two days, as a part of the Twelve Days of Kindle promotion.
The book is available for £0.99 until the end of the seventh of January, so you’ll need to hurry to get yourself a copy.
If you want to listen to an extract, you can do so on the “listen” tab on this page of my personal website.

Long-time visitors to thinkBuddha.org will know that back in 2007, I spent several weeks in Bulgaria researching a novel. Well, after a lot more writing, the book—which is set in Bulgaria and Paris in the 19th Century, and which follows the fortunes of a bridegroom turned bandit turned guitarist turned saint—is now published, and has had some good write-ups, including in The Bookseller, where it was one of the recommendations for August 2012, and The Sunday Telegraph, where it was included in the summer books supplement (‘A powerful literary novel,’ they said…).
There’s more about the book — including a little trailer video, some extracts and readings, and so on — on my personal website.
If you want to get your hands on a copy (and very handsome it is too) you can go to Amazon (in the UK — US release is this December) and buy the book in hardback here. Paperback to follow next year!

As I wrote in my previous post, I’m now blogging over on my new blog, The Myriad Things, and so I don’t plan to blog any more here on thinkBuddha other than to post occasional news updates. But I thought I’d just come over here to mention that I’m still making a few tweaks to thinkBuddha.org.
I’ve now got recent posts from The Myriad Things listed on the front page of this site, replacing the gaping empty hole that was there before. I need to tweak the CSS and a few other things, but it’s working (thanks to a nice new Textpattern Simplepie plugin).
A few more tweaks coming over the summer. But for new words, head on over to The Myriad Things.

Well, I’ve decided to set up a new blog, over on TheMyriadThings.com ; and so I’m more or less retiring thinkBuddha.org to give my attention to the new site. What this means is that I will not be posting any more here — other than occasional updates in the news section — and any new blog posts will appear on The Myriad Things.
Why the change? Well, when I decided last year (2011) to rethink what I was doing with thinkBuddha.org, one of the things that I realised was that the “Buddhist” (or even “Buddhish”) mandate of the blog was a bit confining. There were things that I felt I couldn’t explore within that particular framework, and so in the end I did not write about them at all. So after a lot of thought, I’ve decided that a new blog with a broader and less explicitly Buddhist mandate might work better, and eventually give me more scope. You can find it here
Do redirect your bookmarks to the new blog if you like; but do also continue to browse the substantial archive of articles here. Although this site is now officially retired, I’m keeping it up as a kind of online repository of thoughts, ideas and explorations.
