A Serious Business

If you know me at all, you know about the books.  If you’ve ever seen my office – especially the new office – you’ll have noticed that there are books.  A lot of books.  Books I’ve read, re-read and loved; books I’ve read once; books I’ve yet to read, even books I read and didn’t…

Let’s Talk About Bad Sex, Baby…

(I know, I'm probably the four hundredth person to use that as a title for a blog post.  It's early in the morning.) One of the most encouraging responses I have had about Going Back related to the sex in it.  To get a positive reaction to a scene I had agonised over was a relief,…

The Art of Asking

So, it's about time for an update, I think. Overall, things are going well - the book is out there, well publicised, there are a number of positive reviews and just this morning I had a call from Books and Company asking me to restock them, because they had sold out. But I've been thinking,…

The moment of truth

No going back, I said - apparently without irony. I pressed the button marked 'Publish', and suddenly Going Back is a real thing, available in electronic bookstores all over the world (including Japan, but not Australia as yet.  I know there's an Australian option out there; that's next on the list) The temptation to sit back…

The postman always brings books…

Well, in my dream life, he does. This morning, almost making us late for school, the nice Purolator man did indeed bring books.  My books: I need some copies to hawk around, and - I think - to give away as freebies on Goodreads. Receiving the proof copy somehow felt more momentous, but this is…

Approaching the end of the beginning

In a little over a week from now, you'll be able to go to your favourite online bookstore and buy a copy of Going Back.  There is a part of me which wants to think back to the very beginning of this process; to think about how I got here from there, but honestly, I…

Flurries of activity

Great outbursts of activity as publication date approaches... The Cover Reveal will happen on the Facebook page on Sunday night / Monday morning depending on where in the world you are.  Go ahead and like the page if you haven't already done so; I'm now utterly shameless about plugging myself! Publicists now on board, agreement signed,…

Re: cover

I have a cover!  Thanks to Scarlett Rugers, Going Back now has a cover. No, you can't see it yet.  Well, a sneak preview:
