Coronavirus and the publishing industry
Hello, lovely people!
I hope that you're all safe and well during this extremely difficult time.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic is affecting every industry including publishing. This means that Unbound has made the difficult decision to push some of their titles out to give them the best possible chance in the marketplace.
Be guid tae yer mammy's publication date has now been rescheduled to May 6, 2021.
This is really disappointing news as it's a long process anyway, but I completely understand and respect the decision and hope that you won't mind bearing with me a little longer.
Until then, I'm going to do my best to send out Scots short stories and other content to everyone who has preordered to make it worthwhile.
I'll also be updating you on the process of my second novel, which I hope to have completed by the end of the year!
Thankfully, this update does contain some positive news too.
I just received the final feedback from guid tae yer mammy's editor before it goes to copyedit. She said "all that new material works brilliantly", and we are both extremely happy with the decision to edit the book so that it's predominately written in cross-generational Scots.
Hopefully, this means that it's a novel worth waiting for.
Best wishes and apologies once again,
