A lot has happened in the last year.
A dissertation on Digital Spaces and Translated Fiction was written.
A graduation. I am now a proud bearer of an MSc in Publishing from the Edinburgh Napier University.
Moving houses. Moving towns.
First Christmas and New Year away from family.
Then I went and got married to my incredible partner on the most cheesiest, corniest day of the year – 14th of February. We will struggle to book a table at a nice place to celebrate our anniversary but we will always remember the date!
Then I went and launched a publishing press – Knight Errant Press. We are currently busy putting together our first project: F, M or Other: Quarrels with the Gender Binary. I even managed to rope in a talented Editor and a fellow ENU colleague (Rhiannon Tate) to join my wee team. All in all it is going quite well. There is a lot of learning-on-the-go but, so far, I am enjoying it. Watch this space, or even better – the Press’ website, for more news and updates.
I’ve set myself a more realistic reading target this year – 36 books. I’ve read 5 so far, these:
I’m an avid library user and most of my reviews are on Goodreads.
Jackie Kay’s Red Dust Road
J.M Coetzee The Lives of Animals
Helen McClory’s Flesh of the Peach [eBook received via Netgalley, due for a review in this blog once I am done with it!]
