Did I mention it has my name on it?
Things are moving on apace with The Ambulance Box, folks. No sooner had I dispatched my second proofs, than third proofs and a first cover design appeared in my inbox. (Okay, I confess to a slight exaggeration there. There was a time lag of a few days.)
The cover looks as fabulous as all those other Salt jackets I’ve drooled over in the past few years but it has my name on it!
This afternoon, the web page for the book went live. It has my face on it, courtsey of the marvellous marc marnie. You can also read descriptions of the collection there, along with a brief biographical note and enblurbments. There’s a PDF sample and you can read a poem from the book and see the table of contents. I’m delighted with how it’s all coming together. Publication date is 1 March 2009, as you know, so don’t be deceived by the big BUY NOW! button. We go to press in the new year. Look out for further updates and details of readings here.
Did I mention I was excited?
