This will be my last blog until September. I will take a summer blog break.
In the next two months I will do and see things I cannot put onto this blog.
For a start I have rented a cottage all on my own, without husband or children or anyone. For two weeks. Somewhere in England. There I will read a lot of books in the search of Peirene’s 2015 series. For each book that I will like there will be at least fifteen to twenty rejections. This is a nasty business and upsetting for many authors and agents and publishers. I’d better not go into details online.
Then I am off again. To one of the channel islands. My mother-in-law has invited us. To a fortified fort that is cut off from the main island during high tide. Now, my mother-in-law is a lovely woman and we get on well. Usually. I hope our love will be strong enough to survive being marooned in the middle of the English Channel.
Upon my return to the office a blood bath will ensue. The Nymph is already unhappy because I am going away and she will be in a horrible mood when I return. Otherwise I have high hopes for my summer. I hope you do for yours. Peirene and I will see you back here at the beginning of September.
