First response to ‘Frozen’
June 27th, 2012
The new book, ‘Frozen’, has leapt the first hurdle in fine style … my agent, Margaret Connolly, says it’s ‘a knockout’ and ‘magnificent’.
She has sent it to Allen & Unwin, who will probably take ages to read it because they are always so busy. But I’m feeling a bit more confident about it now, after Margaret’s response, so won’t chew my nails TOO much.
Writing can be such a nerve wracking business. Really, it’s much nicer being in the middle of a draft, where all you have to think about is what the characters are going to do next, and you’re not worrying about whether people are going to like the book or not. I wonder whether all authors feel like this. I suspect most of them do.
Now I am taking a break from writing, while I ponder what to do next.
