Some of you may know that I am at the querying stage with agents and publishers alike in the attempt to achieve Crazy Train to Tinky Town worldwide domination. Despite having the use of Microsoft spellcheck, there’s always something which I still manage to overlook. I also happen to think that editing your own work is a bit like chewing your own tongue and then gargling with vinegar.
So as one of my besties, Barbara Cheapskate Walshaw, was staying with us, I enrolled her in the unenviable task of proofreading my query. I also asked her whether if after reading this tagline on the back of a paperback in an airport concession, would she buy the book.
Without missing a heartbeat she replied “Depends how much it is”
And that’s why I should have kept all my imaginary friends!
