I’m still finding it somewhat strange to think that my book comes out in a matter of days – June 9th, to be precise. All this time spent thinking and talking about it (let alone actually writing it!) and suddenly it’s going to be out in the world, doing its own thing: independent of me and my many, many hours spent hunched over a laptop. Of course, it already exists in various formats. Proofs have already winged their way outwards, and places like Hay and Birmingham’s Foyles have been giving customers a sneak preview.
This is a quick post, as much of my time right now is being spent bashing away at my keyboard (well, that and a few golden hours whiled away sunning and swimming and reading). Lots of brilliant things will be emerging in the near future, and I’ll be doing a big round up of all the various articles and other fabulous things I’m currently working on.
For now though, if you’re in Oxford this coming Saturday, please do join me for the launch of Notes on Being Teenage at Blackwell’s. It’s from 4pm to 6.30pm, and open to all. There’ll be drinks, nibbles and lots of celebrations. It would be wonderful to see a few lovely faces there.
