Good news – handed over first draft of my new book last week, big phew after months of work. Waiting now to hear what my editor thinks of it – fingers crossed everyone! All going well, it’ll hit the shelves next spring (title under negotiation – I’ll give it out when it’s been decided) so between this and then I’ll be editing and fine tuning it, and of course making a start on the next fairly soon too. No rest for the wicked writer!
Spent the weekend on the Isle of Man, in the middle of the Irish Sea (the image is their flag). They were celebrating their first ever literary festival, and I was lucky enough to be invited to take part. It was a great experience, lots of writers, journalists, poets, publishers and agents from Britain and further afield. There were four of us who travelled from Ireland, and we were made very welcome. We’ll be back, whether they want us or not!
Very autumnal weather here in Ireland right now – my neighbour’s trees are shedding leaves merrily into my garden! I love autumn, like I love all the Irish seasons (well, maybe I’m not that mad about our ‘summer’!)
