I had my first TV interview with Channel 10's Breakfast show yesterday. Channel 10 is based in Australia, so I had to go down to the Pacific Television Center in London at 23:10 – 08:10 over there – in order to do a live broadcast. I had a mic on my collar and an earpiece to hear the presenters. I was a tad nervous but the staff at PacTV really put me at ease, and by the time I went on air I was – hopefully – fairly composed! Having dragged myself out of bed at 06:00, I was also too tired to be nervous. You can see the interview here if you live in Oz.
I'm starting an initial edit of The Bone Season with Bloomsbury on Tuesday afternoon. I've been going over the manuscript making red marks, so it currently looks more like one of my old Maths papers than a novel *shudder*. I'm very excited to have the expert eyes of Alexandra Pringle and Alexa von Hirschberg on it.
A couple of people have said via Twitter that they'd like to ask me some questions about writing. I don't give out my email address online, but I can answer any questions via this blog. If you wish to remain anonymous, don't worry: I won't publish the comment or reveal who asked the question.
