I’m doing something over on Instagram (find my account here) called #meettheauthor and I thought I’d bring it on over to my website too.
Authors are posting images to fit with a theme each day. Day one was where do you write?
Over the last few months my second novel has been back and forth between me and my editor – we’ve taken it in turns to polish away at it and make suggestions of changes. It has really come together, and I can’t wait to share it with you all next year (probably around April or May).
I’ve just sent draft four off to her, and once she’s had a look the next step is for it to hit the desk of a copy-editor. But what do they do?
Beautiful copies of the Czech translation of If I Die Before I Wake were delivered today – don’t they look great?
It’s called Co když zemřu, než se probudím, is published by Knihy Dobrovský and was translated by Jitka Fialová.
It’s been a busy week – I’ve visited nine different Waterstones stores to sign all their stock of If I Die Before I Wake and help sales along.
I’ve done all three Bristol shops, been out to Weston-super-Mare (and snuck in a walk on the beach while I was there), visited the huge Birmingham store, and seven different branches in London.
It’s been a good week or so for If I Die Before I Wake – I think perhaps being Thriller of the Month at Waterstones might have had something to do with it!
Industry magazine The Bookseller has something called the Heatseekers charts, which – as far as I understand – lists books which are selling well, even if not well enough to get into the top 10 bestsellers list.
And If I Die Before I Wake is at number three in the Heatseekers list this week!
