in writing a post for this blog for quite a while. My excuse is that I have been completing my book. Thanks to a great editor, the process has gone quite smoothly. Even writing several hundred captions went .. well, it went.
The book is now in the hands of a copyeditor who thinks the manuscript is “lovely”. She’s not English so she may well mean it.
Next, will come design and layout, and at some point, proofing, proofing, proofing.
It will then disappear, to return like a prodigal child, sometime in August 2018.
Post-partum authorship is something to attend to. My book has required me to travel the world a number of times, and I am conscious of missing that global drive. So, in order to assuage the possible emptiness, I have decided to keep on traveling. As many authors have stated in varying ways – ‘what the fuck, why not ?’
In a few days I fly to Bangkok, then Laos, where I will spend time at the Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden in Luang Prabang. I hope to post something from there.
