What The Author Did Next
Friends think that when I’m in Barcelona I’m at the beach or in tapas bars. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’m working at twice my normal pace, thanks to the siesta that breaks my working day into two distinct halves and seemingly doubles my output.
As I return to London and face the hated month of June (where you’ll find me buried under eye masks, earplugs, anything to keep out the light – and therefore noise – of a city that wakes at 4am) I’m working out my schedule for the coming year. Here’s what I have so far, and you’ll notice that one of these projects is to get back volumes up on Kindle as soon as possible.
October 2014 – ‘Nyctophobia’ – Solaris
May 2015 – Bryant & May 12: ‘The Burning Man’ – Transworld
All earlier books to be put online as e-novels and e-collections – Summer 2014
TBA – ‘Invisible Ink: How 200 Successful Authors Disappeared’ (New edition – completed)
October 2015 – ‘Dream World’ – Solaris (Delivered)
TBA – There’s Something I Haven’t Told You (working title – final draft)
TBA – Crazy Lady (first draft finished)
TBA – The Foot On The Throne (outline written)
TBA – Untitled supernatural suspense novel
In the spirit of these tell-all times, I’m going to try and provide a bit more access to the process of writing along the way, if anyone’s interested.
