« The Australian cover of Liar
Blog Every Day Month »
Some of my writer friends are going barking mad waiting for their books to come out. Especially the newbies. I have decided the only solution is for the world’s mad scientists to drop whatever they’re working on1 and instead invent a brain patch that stops the thinking-bout-next-book-coming-out part of the brain.
Could you do it now-ish, please? Some of my friends are OUT OF CONTROL.
I, of course, am completely sane and rational as I wait for Liar to come out.

And of course before the “waiting for next book to come out insanity” comes the “waiting for agent to accept book” which is followed by “waiting for agent to sell book” and then of course, you know the rest.
Authors. There’s just a lot of insanity going on.

You’re over-thinking this. A shiny object or fun little puzzle should suffice. Show it to appropriate authors, wave it around a bit and soon life will be all “when is my book.. ooh, look… shiny!”

Hold on a second. Doorbell.

I don’t know what you’re talking about, she says from the glitter-covered balloon where she sits in a daring 1870s frock having her face painted like a mime artist. I haven’t been having any funny urges at all.
