I can't believe it has been a whole month since I last posted anything on my blog! I've been plugging away at my current work-in-progress, a novel with the working title The Crimson Teardrop. So far, it's going reasonably well. But it has also been taking up all my time!
Well, not all my time. I've also been catching up with my reading, getting stuck into my 'to be read' pile. Trouble is, for every book I finish I seem to have acquired three or four more! This year, I'm keeping a list of every book I read. I know it sounds a bit anal, but come December when people start asking me what was the best book I've read this year I won't have to rely on my shockingly poor memory.
I'm currently reading a paperback I bought in pristine condition for 50p from a market stall in Deal on Saturday. Gone Fishin' by Walter Mosley is the prequel to the Easy Rawlins series. According to the blurb on the back, Gone Fishin' was the first book Mosley wrote. I wish the first novel I wrote had been half as good! In fact, I wish the same of theone I'm struggling with now!
