Contact Info Stays the Same in Wooden Horse Move

Wooden Horse PublishingThe postal, website, blog, Twitter addresses and the telephone number won’t change, but The Horse has a brand new barn.

We unexpectedly got a chance to move to newer, brighter digs just across the parking lot.  Unfortunately, jumping on this opportunity meant being off the Internet for several days as neither of the two high-speed digital services in our little town could cope with our sudden request for a quick transfer.  Our colleagues around the world would not be impacted of course, but the spider in the Wooden Horse communications web, Meg, would.

However, we’re now back on and busy catching up on all the news.  And, just in case, here’s our contact info:
