Hello everyone, and Happy New Year! I hope you are having a great 2019, so far.
I’m working away like crazy on the next book, and I should have some news very soon to share with you. It’s freezing cold here, snowy, but we did have a brief hour of sun today (picture below). I’ve already broken a couple of New Year’s resolutions. I told myself that I would eat healthy during January. The dreaded podge settled over me after writing the last draft of the next book, which I finished in December, and the food here in Slovakia is so good, and sitting behind my computer and stuffing my face seems to be a writing habit I have to break. I put on 6kg during the last writing spree, and I’ve got another two books I want to write this year, and the weight gain maths is quite terrifying. I’m on a health kick, but last night I got my notes back from the editors of the new book, and I was so happy with them that I had to celebrate, which involved a four cheese pizza and a glass of (slightly flat) leftover champagne. I’m back on the horse today.
Thank you for all the wonderful messages over the holidays and from the recent foreign and UK publications. The UK and Commonwealth paperback edition of Dark Water was published just before Christmas, along with Chladnokrevne, the Czech edition of Cold Blood, and last week La ragazza nell’acqua, the Italian edition of Dark Water and Oiseau de nuit the French edition of The Night Stalker were published. Thank you to everyone who has messaged. I have been deep in the writing room, and need to catch up on my replies, but the messages you’ve sent have been wonderful and have given me such a boost over the last few months locked away writing.
That’s all for now, it may have seemed like I’ve been a bit quiet over the last few months, but behind the scenes there has been a lot of exciting book-related stuff going on. Thank you, as always, for all your support, it means the world to me – Rob x
