Who else is sick of this hot weather? I know I am, and the puppy has been suffering too. I’ve been trying to edit The Wake after I finish the day job, but it’s just too hot to do anything except splash around in the paddling pool with Ivy. Thankfully it’s going to cool down by Friday, which is my dedicated writing day, and I can get it finished.
Another piece of good news is that Bloodhound Books has accepted my third manuscript! It will be published in early 2021, more details tbc. I’m quite proud of this book. I wrote it in 5 weeks after having to scrap another one, but I took my time editing it and got some invaluable feedback from my beta readers to help whip it into shape. Plus my usual editor is an absolute whizz, I have total faith in him making sure the book is as good as it can be.
That leaves me out of contract, but I have ideas bubbling away and something that has been going on in the background for a very long time which will hopefully come to fruition soon!
P.S. Don’t forget to vote for Girl, Lost for the Not the Booker Prize shortlist – details below!
