Happy New Year, all. I’ve neglected this space a little over the holiday season, so here is a post I wrote for Waterstones to kick off 2014. I’ve been invited to contribute some content to the Waterstones Blog over the coming year (which is pretty awesome), and it’s a year I am really looking forward to!
Well here we are once again at January, cold month of holiday comedown and rash resolutions. I remember the one I made last year: 2013 will be different, I told myself. I was determined to make it the year I achieved an ambition that has sometimes felt ephemeral and hopelessly far off: that of becoming a published author.
