You've got the luxury of challenging every sentence for excess. Make sure you never use more than one adjective, or one description. For example if you have wriiten 'he was breathing hard and sweating' go with either he was breathing hard' or 'he was sweating'.

Thanks V. I really enjoyed Klara and the Sun. I love the premise, particularly the period with Klara in the store, she's so innocent.

No, nothing with Radio 4, can't have everything! The audiobook is read by the actress Eva Feiler and she has a lovely (English) accent. She makes Evie (my protagonist) sound very sweet.

Nice bold site Dave, good use of your author image.

They should give Rose and me commission for selling them so well!

When you wrote about your 'helicopter site', I thought you were being metaphorical in some way, but I see on your profile you were one! 13,000 followers is huge.

Thanks Lynn! It's actually out already, since the 18th of February, although no bookshops open to find it in!
