September and . . .

Watch out for Thursday, when the campaign really begins, but in way it feels like the end of things, rather than the beginning. The business of publication is all about a multiplication of words – writing about the novel, doing events about the novel, answering questions about the novel . . . most of August has been spent gearing up for 3 September, with the result that Connie and Cassie are as real to me as friends, family and neighbours.

I’m out and about a fair bit in the next month – see the Events schedule for details of talks and signings in your area– but I’d like to thank everyone for their support. Edinburgh Book Festival was, as always, a complete treat, and I had a lovely time in the French town of Charroux in the Charente too.
