I have just signed a contract for a big-ish writing job, something large and fun and different that, with a modicum of luck, will come out next year and will carry my name on the cover (or somewhere inside).
Something I cannot tell you about, for a publisher I cannot disclose, part of a project that shall remain unnamed.
Aren’t non disclosure agreements a wonder?
But I can tell you this is one of two big jobs I have lined up for the autumn (the second being still pending), a big fat 80.000 words writing adventure that I will have to plan carefully and execute with speed, elegance and panache.
It will mean reading a lot of interesting books for research (a couple I have read already early in the summer), and then write, write, write.
So, the basic equipment is here and is ready
- a BIC pen and a copybook
- a stack of books
- a folder filled with ebooks
- a virtually infinite supply of tea
The vacations are over.
Time to get to work.
And also time to find a way to post updates about my work here, without telling you about what I am writing.
This is going to be fun.
