If you don’t want to do the maths, that means it’s going on sale 1st February 2022. I know it’s disappointing that it’s not before Christmas, but I don’t pick the release dates the publishers do. I have been writing two books a year like clockwork for ten years. I’ve never had a publication date pushed back because I’ve missed a deadline. I know waiting is hard. I am old enough to remember how hard it was to wait for JK Rowling to write ‘Order of the Phoenix’. It’s all going to be alright. We’ll get there.
Thank you Books + Publishing for the lovely review for ‘Shockingly Good Stories’ (It goes on sale July 2nd, but you can pre-order now). The whole review is really wonderful so go to Books + Publishing and subscribe if you want to read it all.
I get asked for writing advice all the time. Usually I try to explain my total ignorance of how I manage to carry this off. But when my niece asked me I cracked and recorded this video. It’s all the wisdom I have. If it’s not helpful to you I do apologise. But it is seriously the structure I use myself.
Cancel your plans for 2nd February 2021 so you can camp out on the footpath outside your local bookstore that morning. The long awaited 9th instalment of the FRIDAY BARNES series will be going on sale.
