Reading Matters

Apologies for the hiatus - in the last month I've delivered the Reading Matters conference, sent a book to press (!), am three weeks away from sending ANOTHER book to press (!!), and been struck down with a nasty (but swine-free) cold.

I will placate you with two things. First, a quote from Bernard Beckett at Reading Matters, when asked what his advice for aspiring writers would be:

Be alive to the absurdity of the world.

(Bernard also might have said something about how he would love to read a cross between Huck Finn and Twilight, and the words "drown the bitch" may have been mentioned, but perhaps I misheard.)

Second! Here is the final cover of Pink, complete with blurb and quotes from John Green and Simmone Howell! (click to make view fullsize)

Later this month, more news on the NEXT book, some other stuff I've been doing and a post about My Favourite Artist.
