I feel like I’ve given birth. I could have gestated three elephants in the time it’s taken to write and draw, but here it is, a book, with a spine and a cover with flaps and everything! It is sitting in neat stacks in the Myriad office, waiting to be launched in September.
Of course I am on with other projects now, but I am looking forward to hearing what people think about it, and hoping that at least some people will like it. It’s been well received so far and has some lovely comments from fellow authors and other interesting people printed on the cover. It feels lovely and I have had a flick through but I am too scared to look at it too thoroughly in case I spot something I don’t like, that I now can’t change. Daft, I know but I will gather courage soon. I can tell you that the outside of the book is excellent!
I’m already booked to talk about the book at a couple of events, details TBC, see my twitter accounts and Facebook pages for updates. My lovely publishers at Myriad, my equally lovely agent Becky Thomas and I will endeavour to organise events in the North and South of the country over the next few months so that anyone who is interested can get their hands on a signed copy.
Many thanks for following the blog, I promise to update more often, now that I’m not so busy with Becoming/Unbecoming.
