I am not even half way through my second novel and I have already have ideas about the third one. It will be set in contemporary London (post Olympics, because I really can't be bothered to write about it!) but will have surrealistic elements.
I have lived in London for 11 years and even though I now live about 1h away by train, it will always be my city and I go there as often as I can. London fascinates me and inspires me, but at the same time, it is heady, gigantic, all-encompassing and monstruous. I have included some of my impressions about London in "I Am a Muse".
The next six months or so are going to be very important: I will carry on sending "I Am a Muse" to literary agents, although there is apparently "no market" for my novel.
Don't you just love this word?
"I Am a Muse" will be published in 2012, probably self-published. I need to research self-publishing and make a decision about how to do things. I need to decide whether I will self-publish "I Am a Muse" only in the first instance and then "The Book of Thoth", etc. or whether I go mad and launch a mini publishing company. All I know is that I want them to be proper books with ISBNs and all... It is exciting and scary, all at the same time...
"I Am a Muse" will need another proofreading stage and I can already think of one scene to add / a few bits and bobs that need tweaking... And of course, I need to finish off the first draft of "The Book of Thoth" and work on the second and probably third draft...
A lot of work then.
I think therefore I write.
