Farewell Starry Night Skies... and to Katie.
Apart from a cover design, the 12th Katie book is finished and safely delivered to Orchard Books. They seemed to like it. I'm pretty pleased and think it has something a bit special about it, I must admit. A dream like quality that I'm a tiny bit excited about.
As always when a book is finished, I feel a bit bereft. Nevertheless this feels like a good moment to pause, and so I told my editor yesterday that I have decided that Katie will take a break for a while now. Indeed, it feels like this could be a fitting end to this series.
Katie will not quite disappear from my radar as I will be involved with the Splats Entertainment theatre show of Katie over the next year. And who knows what the future will bring...?
So it may not be farewell, only au revoir...
But after a quarter century of Katie, it feels just a bit like the end of an era.
