A writer’s lift during lockdown today as my latest novel work in progress arrived in the post! I finished the final draft a few weeks ago and ordered a proof copy from Lulu. That’s not to say it’s self-published: I use Lulu for printing to proofread, before pursuing publication.


Here’s a celebratory photo of me with my final manuscript, ready for my trusty editor’s red pen! The cherry blossom tree offers a huge clue about the setting of my latest novel WIP. Of course, the title has been redacted until published, as I do with all my unpublished manuscripts.
