I’ve snaffled myself a writing afternoon in the middle of the working week – don’t tell my clients – and have enjoyed the crazy research threads that you follow when starting out on a new plot. Among my search terms today: apothecary, infarction, st martin’s lane, acne and butler’s pantry. Allowing for trips down numerous research rabbit-holes, I am reasonably pleased with just under 890 words written in (what is currently) chapter three of “Plank 6”.
And as if to reward me, an interview I did with the Alliance of Independent Authors – which I joined last month – has appeared on their blog. I can’t imagine there’s anything you don’t already know about why I love financial crime, but just in case – here’s where you can read it all again.
In other news, I hear from Hart’s Books in Saffron Walden that five tickets have been sold so far for my talk there next Wednesday. It sounds like it’s going to be an intimate little session but they are often the most fun. And once you’ve done a talk to three people in a tiny local library, five in a bookshop sounds like riches indeed!
