No News is Good News

As was recently tweeted, things have been quiet around here of late but for very good reason: I’ve just finished my first book.

This isn’t the first time I’ve tentatively made this declaration, and those who have been around these parts for a while might be feeling a bit “boy who cried wolf” about Egress — as it’s long been called.

But it’s for real this time. I signed a book contract back in July. It’s been read twice by an editor. It doubled in size in the process. And now, after receiving this hugely gratifying (and hugely redacted) email, it feels somewhat out of my hands.

The process isn’t over, however — it hasn’t even been officially announced yet — but it feels like it is well and truly over some sort of threshold and on course for a release in the first quarter of 2020.

I don’t really want to say anything too much more about it here until the point of no return has most definitely passed because I’m still shitting myself that I’m going to jinx it and that nothing is real so let this be an update to say we’ll be back to our usual programming soon. I have a bunch of drafts to finish and pastures new to move onto because I’ve been wrapping up the last three years of my life in this book here and it’s all been a bit traumatic if I’m honest.

For now, I need a quick breather so I’m going to go on holiday for a week and a half. Fittingly, I’m off to the Suffolk coast for a week. I’ll probably write about it again, but for now expect a week of photography whilst I recuperate my brain a bit.
