Operation Oysterhood: 8 September

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Negative reader’s reports and rejection letters are never easy to write, and I started the working day today by completing and sending one.

Seeing my counsellor this morning was not easy either – stuff does come up – but she always makes me feel better about the world. An amazing human being, brilliant at her job. Facing some of my sad core beliefs is tough, but the process also involves a sense of liberation. The truth will set you free, etc.

“The future tends to occur.” A wonderful piece of dialogue from the series my love and I are watching. I spent the afternoon working at his house and waiting for a delivery while he was at the office. We then had dinner and watched another witty episode.

Great literary news: another Karavan Press title made the longlist of an award – Melissa A. Volker’s A Fractured Land – one of the first two books we ever published. It is so heartening to see that other readers are delighting in the books we bring into the world. Melissa is working on her third novel, but before we get there, her fans have a lovely summer surprise coming their way very soon. Watch this space!

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
