book deal

my first novel, the bird room, is going to be published by Canongate, spring 2009.

no internet for about 10 days, until i can set up a connection in the new flat. i said this already in the previous post.

my things-to-do list looks like this:
  • move to Chorlton.
  • quit full-time work, september 15th.
  • start work proper on the next draft of the novel.
(i'm so excited right now i'm probably pretty difficult to be around.)

Ooh, go you!

I gave up work last month to finish my novel - it is so much civilised than going out into the real world, I tell you!

Congrats on The Bird Room. Happy Moving too.

chris killen said...

you too, brian.

we should all organize some kind of 'good luck with your novel' party, and pep-talk the living hell out of each other.

Jenn said...

I need a good stiff dose of pep-talking. Just tell me when and where!

Brian said...

I agree with the pep talk party. When are are settled down, let's give it a go. Jenn, how are things going for you?
