Another gem from Tom Gauld:
I head to the Tyrone Guthrie Centre tomorrow to finish the final rewrite on my novel Becoming Belle, out June 2018. It has been quite a journey with this novel but I am looking at the finish line now, thank the stars. I can't wait to hand it in and get on with other things: mentoring, launching my short story collection Joyride to Jupiter and doing festivals to promote it, starting at Belfast Book Festival on the 8th June. I also can't wait to write something else. The thrill of having time to start either a new novel or concentrate for a bit on short stories. Whoop! Bring. It. On.
