Always a miracle

BASTARDS' proofsProofs and jacket in hand for THE BASTARDS' PARADISE. It starts as an idea, a pile of sticky of sticky notes, a file - in this case, three times that process, as UNDER THE POPPY led to THE MERCURY WALTZ and now the final journey of the BASTARDS' PARADISE - and then it's complete. This is my 16th book, and it's still and always a kind of miracle: to open the envelope and take out the proofs, the smooth and crackly jacket. And the ebook is a different kind of miracle - that books can be so accessible, so easily. What a process, what a journey, what a joy.
