Happy New Year to all, hope 2013 brings all you hope for and more. I’m a happy bunny today – just sent off the final version (I think) of Something in Common, my next Irish publication, due out in April or May, AND my editor Ciara let me have a first peek at the cover she’s proposing for it, and I really like it. I’ll flash it when I’m allowed – she’s checking that they’ve got clearance on it or something, so watch this space!
Next up is a few days of non-writing, to give my brain a chance to catch its breath, and to give me a chance to clean my house, which is well overdue. Tomorrow I’ll be arming myself with vacuum cleaner, feather duster, polish, mop and bucket, in an effort to become a domestic goddess….never happen! But hopefully it’ll look slightly less disgraceful by the end of the day… And when I sit down at the laptop again it’ll be to begin my next book, which looks like being a sequel to One Summer, my last publication. I loved writing that one so much, and so many people asked if I was going to do a follow-up, that I really think it needs to be done. I’m looking forward to revisiting Roone, my make-believe island, and meeting all my friends again!
I’ve said this before but I think it bears repeating – thank you so much to all who have left messages in my guestbook or contacted me privately to tell me you enjoyed one of my books. It really means so much to get a message like that, and I’ve got some lovely ones over the past week or so. Thanks a million for taking the time, it’s REALLY appreciated.
Well, better get an early night in preparation for my day of house-cleaning – groan!
