The reviews are still flooding in…

“Just finished Thumbs and…headline is I absolutely loved it!
Cracking pace, lovely characterisation and a really rich, visceral and believable reality.
A right page turner, and an immersive and involving world. Lovely job! “
Dan Parkinson – Brand Strategist, London

“Well done. Its such a great story well written.”
Debbie – Education & Literacy Consultant, West Sussex.

“You’ve rewritten it? But I liked the last draft! And my younger brother loved it, too.”
Sam – Creative Director, New York.

“Correction. “Bloody loved it.””
James – IT Consultant, London

…and finding a silver lining amongst the rejection letters…

“We enjoyed your writing…”

“I was intrigued by the concept…and I’ve enjoyed reading. I really feel that you write well …some of your descriptions are lovely!”

(Please add “But…” at the end of these.)

The Progress of Error

By what unseen and unsuspected arts
The serpent Error twines round human hearts;
Tell where she lurks, beneath what flowery shades,
That not a glimpse of genuine light pervades,
The poisonous, black, insinuating worm
Successfully conceals her loathsome form.

 

1782
William Cowper
