If you had told me 2 years ago, that on 25th November 2013 I’d be launching my first novel, I wouldn’t have believed you, but I would have wanted to. It has always been my dream to be a writer, to send my words into the world to find homes in the imaginations of others. Many things have changed in my life, but that dream has always remained. And in 17 days (not that I’m counting) it will be a reality. Except it doesn’t feel like reality, I still can’t believe it. Maybe I won’t believe it, right up to the point where I’m signing copies. But if this isn’t reality, if this book launch and all that is to follow is nothing but a dream, then I don’t ever want to wake up.
