Well, thanks for asking.
The three ‘big’ readings/launches are all now done, and the book’s off in the world. There are plenty of reviews coming, and I’ll post comments here when I get them (positive and negative!) So far the writing in the book’s been compared to Jonathan Franzen and Kazuo Ishiguro, and, frankly, I’ll take that and run off into the hills…
Who knows how much importance we should place on reviews? If you’ve read the book and have something to say, I’d love to hear it, as much for my own benefit as a writer as anything else – we crave feedback, to know that someone’s out there, somewhere…and surely criticism is better than silence?
Or, to put it another way, if someone really hated your work, would you want to know?
