suddenly finding myself without a home for Department 57, I've been blown away by the responses from publishers. When did it happen that people like the books enough to want to pick them up?

I've been working hard to write the series, and in some ways it's run away with me, far more successful than I ever dreamed it would be.

I only ever wanted to write, not a lot else, and it was only recently I sent books to publishers. Writing is what I do, everything else is secondary, so promotion and conferences, while fun, come second.

Now I find myself with a bank of books to find homes for, and when they do settle somewhere, I won't have to write anything new for ages.

It doesn't bear thinking about. I just can't. So I'm still writing, still working and characters are still speaking to me.
