I’m delighted to confirm that I’ve finished writing my next novel, and it will be published by Orion Fiction in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the Commonwealth in hardback/ebook/audiobook in early 2020.
I joined Holly Seddon and Gillian McAllister for an episode of the Honest Authors’ Podcast. We talk about football management, how diamond shoes can feel strangely ill-fitting sometimes, and what a weird job writing is in general.
I had the surreal experience when I was in New York of being interviewed by Ellen Gamerman at the Wall Street Journal, when I talked to her about about ‘tilt’, ego and blame — in poker, and in life in general — and about the life lessons that can be taken from playing games with people for money.
I recently went on The Bestseller Experiment Podcast with my Orion Editor, Emad Akhtar, talking about the fun and humiliations of the editing process, ‘soupy’ first drafts, and how the author/editor relationship works.
Charlotte Philby interviewed me for Marie Claire’s ‘Writers bloc’ series about my working habits, imposter syndrome, and what it’s like writing for a living, rather than having (what I’ve learnt not to refer to as) a ‘real job’.
