New Cover

Here's the cover of The Museum of You. There are lots of little details from the book hidden in the art work. I love it. 

Tuesday, 29 December 2015


I received a proof of my new novel a few days ago. I think they've done a lovely job. I like the peep-hole bits on the cover (there's probably a technical name for them, but I don't know it) - they fit with the idea of not seeing the whole picture.

Earlier this month I turned 40. I remember embarking on a Creative Writing MA five years ago and quietly, secretly hoping that by the time I turned 40 I might have had something published. I feel so lucky to have finished my second novel this year - it's more than I could have imagined. I've been the recipient of so much kindness and patience from so many lovely people.

The thought that readers (including my husband) are beginning The Museum of You is terrifying - I thought it would be easier this time, but it isn't; maybe it's always like this (argh). Anyway, I'm taking a break from nail-biting and breath-holding, to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2016.

2015 books

In 2015 I decided to steer clear of Goodreads (the temptation to wallow in one star reviews was too great!) so I kept a visual record of my reading (or, in some cases, re-reading). I wasn't especially diligent in keeping up with it, so there are definitely some books missing (I'll add them if/when I remember what's missing), but, for now, here's what my 2015 looked like in books.
