Sunshine and flowers – publication day

How on earth can it be paperback publication day for The Secret Shopper Affair already? And half-way through October. This year is going at super-warp speed.

I’ve written before about Post-Pub-Day blues. And the world is full of gloom and recessionary talk and stories about the death of the book.

But you know what? When I answered a knock at the door today and was handed some gorgeous publication day flowers, I realised yet again how lucky I am to be a writer. There is nothing better than being paid to make stuff up – and whatever happens to the format of books, human beings will always need stories in form or another.

So I am going back to my edits on the second Soul Beach with a spring in my step. Hope you’re having a happy autumn, too.
