So I’m pretty sure this counts as bragging but I just thought I’d let you know that I’m an International Publishing Sensation. Yeah, yeah, I know… no big deal.
I’ve discovered this while reading the back of an early version of my book which is currently getting sent out to journalists and writers. If you click into the picture on the right you should be able to see it, along with other exciting statements…
Anyway, it’s all ridiculous, thrilling and terrifying. Even the line at the top that says this book is from the publishers of Bridget Jones’s Diary. I mean for God’s sake! It’s the stuff of dreams! I don’t quite know what to do with myself so I keep taking myself for walks around the block, like a I’m a dog who needs to calm down before it’s let back in the house.
Safe to say, I don’t feel like an International Publishing Sensation, I feel like a 40-year-old woman who has a big spot on her chin and the beginnings of a sore throat (my effing throat!).
But I’m so excited and happy and proud. I really hope you like it. It comes out in September.
So that’s it really. How are you? What news?
I’m sorry I’ve been so erratic with the blog. When I was a book-writing misery I didn’t write cos I worried I was too miserable and now I’m not posting because I don’t want to seem like I’m bragging – but I need to GET OVER MYSELF and get back to writing.
OK, over and out. More ridiculous updates to follow, you know, from George and Amal’s yacht…
ps Thank you so much to everyone who has pre-ordered on Amazon, I wasn’t expecting it and I’m really grateful. And for those who haven’t, here’s the link – apparently the price you pay will go down closer to the time the book is published. I think that’s what the publisher said.
