This weekend has a been a busy one, book-wise. The first draft of my second novel conitnues apace — I’m trying to implement one of the lessons I learned in writing and editing Deja Vu, which is to make edits where they are required; i.e. do whatever is necessary to make the text work without waiting for an invitation from my editor.
I’ve also been into some of the shops around Exeter with copies of Deja Vu. The usual response is often one of immediate sympathy. But my local Smiths and Waterstones were both very helpful. They were fairly encouraging, and provided they can set up a relationship with my publisher’s distributor (and provided they like the book), then Thunderbirds are Very Much Go.
