We may not have made the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize list, but we still have reason to celebrate!
We’ve been out to lunch today to celebrate the launch of the new website. Don’t get the wrong idea, publishing really is not made up of social fluttering and million pound deals being struck over champers at the Dorchester. It was a yummy pizza and pasta celebration but an occasion nonetheless. Now, I’m breathing garlic over my computer and trying to write a blurb. I think the garlic may have numbed my brain. The words are there but they are being quite obstinate about allowing themselves to be made into sentences. I think I may try again tomorrow.
Congrats to all the category winners for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize! Personally, I think our own ONE FOOT WRONG by Sofie Laguna should have made the list, but then as her publisher you’ll probably think me biased…
