The mail has been good to me today. Not only did the cardboard box yield ten copies of The Blackhope Enigma, but I received a copy of its first review in The Bookseller, calling it an “impressive début”! Blackhope is included in a list of top picks for July publication and I am really gratified that my first book was chosen.
This has been a brilliant week, percolating with buzz. My London trip generated lots of new inspiration for The Next Book, and I will be getting back to that with gusto. Sometimes you have a day or two or three where you get immense clarity about where you are going and what you’ll be doing when you get there. Maybe there’s some fairy dust in the atmosphere (although it’s more likely to be volcanic ash). Whatever it is, keep it coming.
