Finished. Kind of.

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

The final pre-edited draft of my book has gone to the editor at Hardie Grant. And the book has a working title: When Gods Collide. The name came from my friend Paul Perry. At first I just laughed at the name, and eventually I thought ‘You know, that’s not bad’. And I told my editor, and she just laughed, and the next day she emailed me and said ‘You know? That’s not bad.’
Now, of course, they’re talking about cover images. I like this one, which I often saw at the front of buses in India: pray to the god of your choice that you survive the ride.

But I think the publisher’s looking for something a bit more personal, so I’m digging out old slides of little Katy in India.

We seem to be looking at early next year for publication. You’d think I’d be exhausted, but I’m actually thinking about the next book already…
