I Have Been Doing Work

I have been doing work. Mostly editing work for my book (out early June, folks, get it in your diary), and while there’s not much I can say about the book just yet what I can tell you is that I am exceptionally excited about how it’s shaping up – I saw the cover art for the first time the other day and I love it.

AND I’ve had all the quotes back from people who’ve read it. These are people whose work I love and who, I don’t mind admitting, I’m a little bit in awe of. And they liked it. Wow.

More soon. Promise.


And everyone seems to be getting married, or just got married, or agreeing to marry each other. I won’t mention any names, but you know who you are and I wish you all, all the very best.


And I have read a book on the Kindle. Well, not a whole one. I started the brilliant In Search of Adam (see my review here) in its paperback guise and, once my Kindle arrived, downloaded the eBook and continued reading on that. And I can happily report that the experience was a good one.

I will still buy books (I’ve never viewed eReaders as a replacement for actual books) but I would have no problem at all reading more on the Kindle in the future. It works. And it’s convenient. And I can put PDFs on it, which means that if, for instance, I want to read through a lengthy ms away from my office I can and don’t have to take hundreds of pages with me (or print them out).

    Happy to read that you've given a thumbs up to the Kindle.My birthday is in June so two things to add to my wish list: Kindle, and your book! Yes, I too will continue to buy books. 🙂

    Oh that all sounds so exciting. I am jealous beyond belief about your book (in a nice way, not in a single white female jealous way, I'm sure you'll be pleased to hear 😉 ).Look forward to reading it!Kelly

    Wow – great to hear – made me smile about you getting your nice quotes – very sweet. It must be odd (but deserved) and lovely altogether! Good for you!

    Thanks Marisa – are you a Cancer…?Caroline – I certainly have (see how I do much for sales!) ;)Thanks Kelly. Good. Single White Female (although I recall she was quite the hottie) isn't a good look!:) No reason why you can't be there too if (and I'm sooo not being patronising) you work dead,dead hard (and possibly get a bit lucky!).Rachel, thank you. You have no idea how much the quotes made me smile (read: grin ridiculously!) – they're from people whose work I utterly love. Whoosh!

    Look forward hugggggely to seeing the cover art! but also – I think you could do a roaring trade in lending out kindles, (for a fee) for people like me who will never buy one, but who would like to try em out sometime – and for reading long bleedin pdf files without wasting paper and ink!
