In one morning I happened to meet eight of my publishers from overseas, which is great in itself, but also slightly blows your mind.
Why? Well, there you are, in your shed, writing a book, and struggling with that, and for not one tiny moment does it cross your tiny brain that you might make sure your book will have ‘international sales appeal’.
Maybe it does try to cross your mind, and maybe you just blot it out, because if you started to think like that, you’d go doo-lally pretty sharpish.
Anyway, the pasta’s great in Bologna, that’s the main thing 🙂
