Friday on my mind…

July 10, 2012

Here’s the final cover art for Friday Brown.



It’s gone to print (well, it went to print twelve and a half days ago, but who’s counting?). This book was extremely difficult to write and I still don’t know why. I knew the final scene from the get-go and supposedly the writing is easier if you know where you’re headed, right? Riiiight.

Now I’m going to bunker down with my doomsday supplies: flannies, chocolate, Portishead, a shabby copy of The Secret History, and my dog Banjo. As you do.

      Thanks, Maggie! Buzz me an email and I'll see if I can wrangle you an advance copy. Banjo thanks you, too.

  2. I used to be suggested this blog through my cousin. I am no longer certain whether this put up is written by him as nobody else recognise such certain approximately my trouble. You are incredible! Thank you!

  3. will you be having the same cover artist for your next book? i noticed that so far both your books have this thick border on their covers and i think the same font too, to give it a more uniform look ... anyways, i bought your book (friday brown) from and i will always, always, always buy the aussie version even if i sometimes have difficulties with the slang, i think that it's part of what makes the story yours to begin with and i'd be afraid that the uk/us versions would edit them to e.g. "americanize" them ... i'm starving for your new book that has not been published yet, thirsting for the words i have not yet read! :)
