Those are the words my editor sent me in an email. They will remain with me for ever and should really be the title of a book. ‘Your book is conspicuous by its absence’ was a real hefty kick up the backside and now it’s done. It stopped me faffing about and made me get down to work. I say it's done. I mean the first draft. Now comes the lovely bit. The polishing tweaking, changing it to get it as good as I can.And I’ll let you know what it’s called when I’ve decided. And I’ll let you know when it appears.
