My advance copies of Madigan Mine arrived on Monday! It’s still difficult to get my head around the concept that I will have a novel sitting on the shelves of bookshops in a week or so, a novel that people who don’t know me from Eve will be able to pick up and read. Gulp. Of course, actually holding the thing in my hot little hands helped with that a great deal.
Then this morning there was a fresh new link to a Madigan Mine book trailer sitting in my inbox. The trailer was put together by Paul Murphy at Book Tease, who has done an excellent job of capturing the feel of the novel without giving too much of the story away. So, the whole my-novel-in-bookshops thing? It’s feeling very, very real right about now!
