Senseless News 17

Sunday, 15 April 2018

Hello, just a bit of an update on Senseless progress. My manuscript came back to me a week ago from its copy edit. Guidelines are that I would need about a week to return it. I’m always keen to get things done as quickly as possible but this week I haven’t managed to do ANY. I‘m looking forward to getting my head down from tomorrow.

The dog didn’t eat it, I do have a good reason for slacking. Last week I was in London for a few days and had a wonderful time losing at cribbage and spending time with my dear friend/ interpreter/ guide/ huge Senseless supporter, Debbie Watkins. On Tuesday, we braved the tube (fantastic disabled access at KX and Earls court) to spend a few hours at London Book fair. Here is a photo of us on our way:

We eventually found the Unbound set up and were enormously lucky to catch two lovely Unbound legends: John  Mitchinson and Xander Cansell. I was so pleased to meet some people who are directly responsible for breathing life into Senseless. John is one of the founding fathers of the whole shebang and Xander heads Unbound Digital, responsible for books like mine that aren’t being produced as hardback. Here is me with both of them

After more (lost) games of cribbage, coffee and  a good re-charge, Debbie and I headed to a pub to meet with some other Unbound authors, it was very a treat to meet them. Do look out for books/ pledge support for projects by (left to right in the photo) Tabatha Stirlling, Jennie Ensor, Laura is an editor, Ivy Ngeow and Kate Bulpitt.

Brilliant time,  truly exhausting and this weekend saw a big birthday celebration for my lovely mum

So, I didn’t do my homework but hope I’m excused :)
