My second Magda book, Mayne Island Aliens, should be in print by May 15th.  I’ve just sent my book file off  to Printorium, and they have assured me it will.

I compare the process of writing a novel to childbirth.  The labour was long and there were many episodes of false labour, but the final push was hard and productive and finally the little one has been birthed.  We’ll find out in time what sort of child it is.  Will it thrive?  Will it have the strength to stand up for itself?  Each mother hopes her child will be strong and unique, and I’m no exception.

Tomorrow is Beltane.  It’s a fitting day to bring a new life into the world.  Happy Beltane to everyone!
