Well we’re just over a month into the year and it’s going well.
The Complete Entlebucher Mountain Dog Book is being well received and I have found some of the comments truly humbling. I’ve had requests to translate it into other languages, which is something I may consider, but not yet.
I’m making good progress with the second in the Flynn and Reilly series. Thank you to everyone who keeps asking when the next one is ready. It’s great to know that I can’t sit back and relax, because you’re all waiting. I’m just over 5000 words in and have sent the opening off to two forthcoming competitions. I’ve also submitted New York Orphan to a competition for published titles. If the reviews so far are anything to go by, then it has to be in with a good chance.
I’m looking forward to running sessions on generating ideas at the York Festival of Literature and on both Publishing and Mind Mapping at Swanwick Writers Summer School in August. I’m also looking forward to later in the year when the York Museum Trust Book Group plan to read New York Orphan and I shall be attending their discussion on the book.
Now back to the writing before you all tell me off!
