Wow. Seven years has certainly flown in. Seven years of winning awards and winning losing and winning again agents, and countless publishers saying, not for me. And now The Glass Door, my debut novel that I began writing a decade ago, is published.
And yet I feel like it's exactly the right time, even if there have been times (many) where I have felt ignored, persecuted, hard done by. None of that was real, or did me or anyone else justice. Everything has its season, and this is Rosie's. I'm so grateful to let it loose into the world at last. My intention for it is to give whoever reads it something of value, whether that's escape, meaning, resonance, or even catharsis. Or something else entirely. I so excited to see where it travels from here...
The Dublin launch is taking place on October the 17th at 6.30pm at the Mutiny (Old Focus) Theatre on Pembroke Place.
Come by and raise a glass with me...x
