Whilst it seems I have to wait until tomorrow morning to collect my copies of my books from the post office, other reviewers are flicking through it already. One thing that has come to light is this:
I just wanted to add that this isn’t some marketing ploy (I’d apply something much more sinister than this if I was interested in pleasing the gods of publicity). No, this is a genuine thanks. It’s incredibly difficult to forge a new career as an author, especially with all the white noise out there, and many bloggers have been directly and indirectly supportive through lovely reviews, but mostly constant coverage and links, and the cumulative effect is that it has significantly raised my profile. I’m doing far better than I should be, so I felt it would be foolish not to mention that.
