Yes, I am pleased to announce that the postie just popped by with a little parcel for me - my very own first copy of DRIFT! Hooray!! The cover looks even more beautiful in real life and a little thicker and weightier...312 pages. Breathe and Undine were each around 245.
Oh yes, it's an exciting moment. It's real. I made a thing.
Can't bear to read it though. I open it tentatively, scared that I've made some critical error on the first page, or as if something terrible, some kind of flat, papery monster, lurks inside the covers waiting for me. Ooh, look. Watery images in the internal pages. Pretty.
Fred was fairly impressed for about 22 seconds. Una thinks the postman is daddy. Ha ha.
