Conf 672 - A beautiful white coincidence
I found a fallen white rose on the path in the garden the other day, I brought it inside and put it in a little glass. Back in the garden in the afternoon I found this rose locket (not valuable I should add, made of tin and plastic!).
Apologies for another long absence.
Writing and editing full on at the moment, finishing an update of Done & Dusted for print, editing and promoting my two lovely blackbirdebooks' authors, breaking for good with my agent (barely scratched the emotions, that, how times have changed) and, excitement, have been dealing with the first translation rights query for all our blackbirdebooks. The best it gets away from the computer is quick escapes to the garden for short runs and stretches. I take my yoga mat. I quite like carrying my yoga mat around. It's a bit like having a dog, people talk to you. They probably think I'm a healthy bendy person when nothing could be further from the truth. I spend way too much time hunched over the screen.
But needs be, when all the books are out there in print I'm looking forward to getting back to some full on writing. Meantime I'm loving working with other writers as well. I'm editor on these two lovely paperbacks. Highly recommended:
The Valley of Heaven and Hell - Cycling in the Shadow of Marie-Antoinette
The Dream Theatre
Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
