Today I feel like sharing some of these pics from The Guardian interview and photo shoot from earlier this month, portraits taken by Tristram Kenton. I hesitated to share some of these because I’m laughing, and because I feel self conscious, but decided laughing is good and so here we are: hello, this is my face.

Mrs Death Misses Death has been out for two months now and is available in hardback, ebook and audiobook with Canongate. Spring is going to be super busy for me. I will be sharing my new book at some amazing online book festivals, wonderful talks and panel events, sharing conversations with amazing authors I love and admire like Jenni Fagan and Monique Roffey plus popping up on lots of radio and podcasts too. As we get into summer some of these lovely things may even be in person! No way! Yes way! Imagine that! Face to face! The response to this book so far has blown my tiny mind. I have been particularly moved by readers images of the last page and how readers have felt a connection in that ritual. It means the world to me. Thank you for supporting this debut release and for following this journey so far, keep on keeping on... sgxx
