Not the general election

This morning the postman pressed the bell at around 7.30am, and handed me a suspiciously half dozen book-shaped parcel. I scissored it open and there they were - the author advance copies of The Lady Soldier. Pristine, solid (it's hardcover) and seemingly with the whole story printed on the pages inside.

Golly gosh. Folks are going to be able to buy it so very soon*, and read it. The end of a journey seems so very near. I hope the boat is heading for the beach, and not the rocks.

Then I went out to vote in the elections.

    Enjoy the moment of getting author copies - it's great. Best of all, it's still a wonderful feeling 20-odd books down the line.

    Enjoy. You and Michelle have done the hard work. Time to bask in a bit of glory and enjoy it!
