Well my long silence can be explained by the fact that I've just handed in my fifth manuscript! It felt really good to type those two little words The End. I can't say too much about the new one yet except that it will be about architecture and centre on Palladio and his great villas and churches of the Veneto.
This book will have a strange genesis because it has already been optioned for a screenplay, so I immediately have to 'adapt' it into screenplay form. What's nice about this is that I usually miss my characters when I finish writing them, but this time I won't have to, because I'm sure there will be MANY drafts to come. I'm a total novice at screenwriting so am hoping for the best and will be picking Sacha's brains constantly. I'm meeting my film producer tomorrow so more news soon.
