Where we are
You all really deserve an update. It’s been awhile.
(I feel pretty much every update starts like that. Sorry.)
We have the draft of a cover. It needs a few tweaks, then I’ll be giving you a sneak peak.
The proofs have been read and corrections (minor) sent back. I’m pretty sure those corrected proofs are imminent. I hope.
My author portrait is one of me looking knackered in the middle of winemaking. That’s ok. It’s kind of a thing. I’m bald and over 40. It’s not like it’s going to be a Tinder avatar.
Other than that, I’m not sure what else there is to wait for. Other than, you know, the book. It’s pretty close. In the meantime, I leap from eager anticipation to existential horror at the thought of the final book being in your hands.
Oh, and there are acknowledgements and dedications to finalise. I also have to write a “none of this stuff happened, even though the names of all the places and pubs are real” notice at the beginning of the book. That’s almost done.
