The UK and US editions of The Curses, together in all their splendour. Both of them are now out in stores, online, everywhere books can be bought.
I wish I could say that the process of having a book come out gets less nerve-wracking each time, but it's something you never get used to. Still, whoever does and doesn't like or buy it, I'm incredibly grateful that it exists, and that I have been given the chance to write it and put it out there.
Occasionally, something happens to make me step outside of myself - usually it's a stranger asking me what I do for a living - and when I say the words 'I'm a writer' I am forcibly reminded that I, well, really am. Sometimes I even say 'novelist', just for extra surreal kicks.
Teenage Laure is freaking out right now.
Here's to 2019, and however long this crazy career lasts.
