And Faber (my publisher) launched a competition to find a teenage British actress to play one of the characters from my book in a set of online video diaries. Totally exciting! The video diaries will be a prequel to my book, The Glimpse, and focus on Tamsin Strike, my main character’s missing BF. In a series of 25 bite-sized episodes, the videos reveal the weeks leading up to Tamsin’s disappearance and will be laced with clues about what really happened. (But you won’t ever really know until you read the book!) Teenage girls from all over the UK are currently uploading their auditions to The Glimpse facebook page. Another great distraction for me. So much talent! I love watching those auditions.

Other news: I went through crisis mode on book 2 of The Glimpse Duet a few weeks ago, totally pulled apart my first draft and restructured. With only a couple of months until I have to hand it in, needless to say I was freaking out. That’s what comes from a planner thinking maybe she was a panster. Back on track though and all is going well again.
What about you? What was your January like?
