The SEND button
For the past year, I’ve been working with Michelle Spring on a book about writing for the Arvon writing foundation. The Arvon Book of Crime and Thriller Writing will be published in 2012, both in the UK and US markets. And I can say that with assuredness because I have just this morning hit the SEND button and flipped the final manuscript across the Atlantic to Michelle. It’s been a ton of work and I am very grateful that Michelle asked me to share the project, because I probably never would have got around to writing a How to Write book on my own.
But I’m very glad it’s (more or less…) finished, and I think it’s going to be a work of great Truth and Beauty and more than that, even Usefulness.
Now, I have a Whole! Week! Off! before I get tucked into the copyedit revisions for Garment of Shadows. Thanksgiving, indeed.
