I received a proof copy of ROAD CLOSED in the post today! I think my publisher hurried it through for London Book Fair (no longer London International Book Fair...)
It is surreal to open a book and read your own story on the pages. Strange and very exciting!
The actual cover has a little more on it than the image here (like a quotation from Jeffery Deaver - "a stylish top-of-the-line crime tale") and because it's B format the print is larger than in CUT SHORT, which is better.
I am now the author of TWO books. I can't stop grinning...
Here's a link to a new interview - pages 14-15: http://issuu.com/whitstableimp/docs/whit_may2010
Must be really cool.
How wonderful. So happy for you.
Merci, Guillaume -
Thank you, Helen -
It is very cool!
I'm at my usual muddle stage with DEAD END, having moved a few chapters around - now everything's in the wrong place aaaargh! - so my parcel arriving cheered me up a LOT.
Congratulations!! I've started reading Cut Short, that you signed for me in Uxbridge on Saturday and I'm really enjoying it.
Congratulations Leigh. I read Cut Short last week on holiday - I really enjoyed it and I'm passing it over to Husband now.
I'm so happy for you, Leigh! Now how about that interview for this new book?
I was just thinking of you so popped in to check on your upcoming book and Voila!, here it is almost ready for us. Can't wait to see what mystery and skullduggery awaits Geraldine.
Hey Jim, thanks for visiting here. It was good to meet you and I'm glad you're enjoying CUT SHORT.
Hi JJ - Good to hear from you. I've been meaning to hop over to your blog to see how you're doing. I'm glad you enjoyed CUT SHORT - hope the hubby likes it!
Hi Rick - I'm up for an interview. Any time!
Ooooh, Annie... Mystery and Skulduggery...
Congratulations... I feel excited for you. TWO real books of your work is a fantastic achievement, brilliant.
Hi Chris - I've just been over to your blog - you're so busy! I do like your photo. It looks as though you do a lot of writing at that desk.
Wonderful, Leigh! Now, when can I get my copy? ;)
I love the cover and can't wait for my copy to arrive.
The cover is eye catching - and it does have something to do with the plot...
I hope you like it when you read it. (I'm firmly ignoring that little voice in my head : what if no one likes it???)
Looking forward to reading it!
When will it be available?
I wanted to wait so I could order BOTH books.
I will be keeping these forever in my fav book collections.
Thanks for your support, Jilly
Val, I'm SO touched by your wanting to keep my books 'forever'. Thank you! It makes them sound so precious. When my children were little, they used to bring all their pictures and stories and books and whatnot home from school. I told them I would keep everything they did forever. I had a 'Keep Forever Box'. Needless to say it filled up very quickly and I had to do a little 'weeding' now and then! I still have a 'Keep Forever Box' with keepsakes of sentimental value.
Hi - nice to meet you yesterday in Harrow. The book looks good - my son thinks so as well! Might have to wait for my turn -
Congratulations on your success
Hi Maisey - how nice to hear from you. I hope you enjoy CUT SHORT, and manage to read it before ROAD CLOSED is out... delighted your son is reading it too!
