CHARLES DICKENS’ BIRTHDAY

Some people may think that it is great timing that I have written ‘Artful’ for publication in the bi-centenary of Charles Dickens birth.

It’s not great timing.  It’s a mixture of luck and slow writing.  I first had the idea about ten years ago and have toyed with it like a child playing with the cabbage on his plate.

Finally, towards the end of 2010, I started to pull it together when I studied on a Creative Writing course at the University of East Anglia.  I had never even heard of Kindle Self Publishing at the time.

Timing?  Luck?  Who cares?  I’ve really enjoyed writing the novel and I hope that people will enjoy reading it.
