it feels good

I have finished my novel. Took about 18 months to write, what with having a full-time job and all. It's not the first book I've written, but it is the first novel. It is called Priors Gardens. That's it for now.

Can't you tell us a little more than that Jane?

I expect it will be very good. You've had a lot of experience writing fiction on this blog.

oooh get you anon 1058, care to be more specific?

Mr Street I can tell you that Priors Gardens is a real street, and that it is in South Ruislip in the London borough of Hillingdon.

Who is publishing it and when?

Yes but is it a thriller,a political thriller,a finely wrought contribution to the literary canon or,perhaps a racy piece of political chic-lit..whats the hell is it about..[and don't say about 19/99rrp.]

Does it feature any tattooed piscatorial politicos with strange accents who once worked at Heathrow?

it's a story, that's all, and while some characters have emerged from aspects of my observation of people I have known, to anyone who thinks they recognise themself or someone else in it I would say, almost in the words of Carly Simon, "You're so vain, you probably think this book is about you".

I for one hope it's nothing to do with politics. I know people come to this blog for all that but I think you have a more interesting book in you.

it is not about politics it is about the lives of three women. I probably thought I was writing the Great British Novel but what I have in fact written is rather sophisticated chick lit - you can all be the judges of that later
