Publication Day for Plotting for Grown-ups!

It all started on Boxing Day 2011 when I emailed Jane thus -

Hi Giovanna

I hope you’re surviving your Christmas…...

We have survived an OFF Christmas thus far. Dave brought me bacon and eggs in bed, and made me a special 3d card: his contribution.

I kept the tiny tree-in-a-pot in my room, along with the cards: my contribution.

I’m writing because I read PfB again – after 5 years away – to cheer me up. And it did. It was very cheering. I loved all the stuff about Iain, and Richard and Pippa, and I loved your emails.They are a model of understated, pithy wit.

I was wondering how you felt these days about a sequel.

I know you are busy with…….and could not contribute much because of that, but how do you feel about my writing a sequel and you contributing minimally?

I have not planned it out and it is just an idea I had this morning…..

Let me know what you think………….

Happy New Year,

Love and best


and Jane’s reply (massively expurgated as I have not asked her permish to quote it)

and now….drum roll….

And now, today, Delicately Nuanced is proud to announce the worldwide publication of the ebook edition of PLOTTING FOR GROWN-UPS. (The paperback edition will be published on September 24th.)

Layout 1

You can buy it here.

The publisher and authors would be delighted if you’d post an honest review on Amazon when you’ve read it. Reviews help sales. And we need sales.

I am laughing. Why? Because it’s finally happened.
