My new novel "Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights" was delivered to the publishers yesterday. I'm excited and also...unemployed.
.@TarynKelly7 Cat Stevens is indeed deceased. Sadly reincarnated as this Yusuf android with a bad beard.
.@YusufCatStevens has been lying about his fanaticism for years.If he has changed his mind,let him offer an apology. I might even accept it.
