A very nice little tweet from my editor Jamie Groves who is now giving the manuscript a final check through... 'A Blindefellows Chronicle by @auriel_roe (@unbounders) - definitely one to watch. Hilarious, heart-rending, a joy to read.' Cover design is underway so fingers crossed for a late Spring release!
A year and a half ago I had this strange little thought... what if an older man, rather awkwardly, finds himself victim to his first crush? Somehow this bizarre shard grew into a ninety thousand word novel. I'm so pleased with the result - I knew I could write but I hadn't for so long and had no plans to write a novel until struck with this notion. More of us should act on our quirky thoughts!
Thanks for all your support and it's not too late to tell your friends to get one so they can get a special mention inside the book for helping this project on its way.
