May madness

May is promising to be a crazy month, in the nicest possible way.

First there was the election, but that is finished now so let's move rapidly on.Then there are book launches. I have an unprecedented three to attend.

The first, held on Saturday, was a party to mark the launch of Keris Stainton's first novel, Della says:OMG. If you haven't already done so, do read this guest post by Keris as part of her blog tour. I've followed Keris' blog since just before she got her agent, so attending her launch was inspirational.

The party itself, in a pub near charing Cross Station, was great fun. It was lovely to meet up again with Helen, and also to meet several online friends for the first time, including Tamsyn, Claire and Keris herself.

As far as my own novel goes I'm still fine tuning, in preparation for a final paper edit next week. I've got a hospital appointment tomorrow, so will aim to print it out on Friday and start work on it on Monday, when the house is quiet. My synopsis and cover letter are both ready, this is all starting to become very real.

That's fabulous progress Cathy. I'm nowhere near subbing... Well done.

Cathy said...

Helen - looking forward to the next one :)

JJ- I've been working very hard on it since Xmas. It was made easier by no longer having a day job and also first the snow, then the temporary mobility problems I was suffering, kept me at home!

Lane said...

Gosh you're almost there! Well done you.
