Hello wonderful people!
I just wanted to stop by and update you on the book.
I have completed an early first draft! Whoop!
High five. I thank you.
I call it an early first draft as it is still a bit rubbish, but it’s a starting point on which to build. I haven’t sent it to Unbound just yet, it is currently with some buddies I trust and admire who will tell me where it is particularly crap so I can work on it before submitting a stonkingly good draft for Unbound in mid September.
Aaaand rather blooming excitingly it has already been taken on by a Film and TV agent (Emily Haywood-Whitlock at the Artists Partnership) who thinks it would make great TV! I know enough about the books to telly biz not to get too excited just yet, but it feels encouraging nonetheless.
Anyway I will scoot off for now. Thank you so much for believing in it and me thus far. Do please keep spreading the word and sharing the project with people if you can. People can still support the book by pledging for a preordered copy, coming to the launch and signing up for a workshop, and they will get their name in the book and be part of the process going forward too.
Right, I really am off now!
