Even More Waiting

11 June 2009 in Lifelines Mentoring The Mistress of Nothing

News in just now that copies of my book will be delayed while they make sure the cover is perfect, and so the publication date will be delayed from 9 July to 16 July.  In the greater scheme of things this doesn’t make a lot of difference - just means I’ll have to wait a bit longer to get my grubby hands on the thing, as will everyone who has pre-ordered it already from Amazon, even if that is only my friend Mandy - yay Mandy!

The fact is that I’m still waiting for all those things in that list from my previous post on this subject.  Plus some other stuff too.  I get drip-fed rumours from my agent that foreign publishers are sniffing around my novel, considering whether or not to buy it for their own lists… I find it hard not to stop breathing.

But I do need to crack on with three big new projects, despite the absence of contracts… ‘Lifelines’ for Rising Stars, ‘Dorian Gray’, and a brand new collaboration with digital artist James Coupe - more on that in another post, another day.

I’ve gone ahead and got very nice postcards made of the cover of ‘The Mistress of Nothing’.  Post a comment here if you want me to send you one!

I got my hands on a copy of The Mistress of Nothing a month ago, and loved it! Looking forward to talking to you about it in person. Bookarmy.
