I just read that review out loud to my mother. It is the kind of moment you daydream about when you are in the thicket of a book that is not yet a book and you cannot see your way forward or back. It is the kind of daydream that kickstarts you back into writing when you splutter to a stop. It is the kind of daydream that you never imagine will happen.
And then one day, it does. How magical.
Rick Friedman is a wonderful man who has a wonderful bookclub. It is a vast, energetic book club and he leads it with verve, skill and devotion. He makes it a lovely place to be.
My publicity team adore Rick. He and my publicist Jessica are organizing a Goodreads Giveaway. It takes time, effort, thought and kindness. I am so very, very lucky. Thank you, Rick.
Ps: It looks like I am snowed into London for Christmas and not going to the States...
