Just finished chapter 8 of Lifer, the crunch chapter. Running total is 82K words. Just a final chapter of 8K to do by end of June – to meet the publisher’s submission deadline. I finish this term’s teaching 19 June, so should have plenty of spare time. Only problem will be a piano falling on my writing hand or something.
Next book signing event is Saturday 14 June, for Waterstones Manchester Arndale. It’s also England’s first World Cup match… against Italy. Yet the next day is Father’s Day, so hopefully there will still be the odd shopper out and about. See you there! Or in the pub.
