New methodologies...


I've just finished what I hope will be the final edits on White Crow, published in July. Of course there's bound to be some tweaking to do, but I think it's ready, by and large.

This is just as well as I've been writing without the benefit of central heating this morning - this certainly sharpens the mind, and stops one dithering over the exact position of commas quite so much. Perhaps this could be a new writing technique...? How about writing standing up? Or in a sauna? That would certainly encourage one not to hang about...

Right, I'm off for a walk on the basis it can't be any colder outside than in.

Will you have a blurb for us to read soon of White Crow and a cover design?

How exciting! Hope you are pleased with it. Try writing on an exercise bike,our mum does that and gets twice as much done that way. We cant wait for July.

I like the sound of working on an exercise bike. Your mum is clearly fab, dex and bebe.

Becky - Orion have their top boffins working on a cover as we speak. Blurb to follow but if it doesn't contain the words "modern" and "gothic" in pretty much that order, I'll be very surprised :-)

I might post some of the new cover designs for my backlist - I'm getting a more commercial look...

Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf wrote standing up. Me? I like the idea of the sauna but my specs would steam up, and the ink would run.

I like the title White Crow, I read the previous posts about the title change.
