I've been working on my edits for 'Happiness Ever After' for what feels like forever. I thought I had until 1st August to get them done but, when my agent told me that the publication date of Jan 2011 had been confirmed and they'd need my novel back by mid July, I went into panic mode and booked myself into Anam Cara for 9 days so I could get it done.
And, after a LOT of hard work (and HOURS at my desk), I did!
So it's back with my agent and editor now. Fingers crossed they like the changes and it doesn't need lots more work. I don't know if I've got the energy! I realised, the other day, that I've been working on novel 2 for 18 months now and, apart from a 10 minute screenplay, I haven't written anything else in that time. I'm ITCHING to get started with something new.
If you're not following me on Facebook you won't know that I've seen the cover for novel 2! It's lovely! It's very similar in style to 'Heaven Can Wait' and features Brighton Pier (or a very similar pier) on the front which makes me very happy! I can't post it up until I'm officially allowed to. 'Like' me on facebook if you haven't already as it'll probably go up there first.
What I can show you is the cover of the Chinese version of 'Heaven Can Wait'. I absolutely love it. I think it looks like a film poster. What do you think?
Oh yeah - and there's an interview with me in Twisted Tongue magazine where I talk about creating characters, dream jobs and film versions of my books. If you follow the link below you'll see a link on the right hand side of the page that takes you to a free download of the magazine. My interview is on page 67
I'm sure there are loads of other things I should mention but that's it for now...
