Publication Day in Germany!

Well, it's here. I've been working towards this day for a very long time. You heard the one about the ten year overnight success? That's me. I woke up this morning, same old me. Nothing has changed, right? Wrong. I can finally call myself a published author! Yes, me!

And just as I am writing this, six copies of Sein Zorn komme über uns have arrived.

I am delighted with the way the book looks. I had no input in the jacket design but I think my German publisher, Goldmann, have done a great job. 

All of a sudden, publication is not something happening in the future. It's right here, right now. I can hardly contain myself . . . 

There are no trumpets sounding, no launch parties planned in far flung places, just a small but very special family party at home later on today.

I just couldn't let the day pass without acknowledging two very special people who have helped me on my way. My partner, who has always believed in me. Thanks, Mo. And my agent, a really cool guy for those of you who don't know him. Thanks, Oli.

The rest of my day will be spent doing absolutely nothing except holding this very special book in my hand whilst I raise a toast to Goldmann and also Sigrun Zühlke, my German translator, who I've yet to meet.

That's all. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
