I’m currently reading Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveller’s Wife and I’m loving it. It’s uniquely original, and fantastic read. It is also incredibly wonky – in its constant switching between characters and times and its all told in the present tense – I can’t help but draw parallels with my own novel, if only I could make mine this good.

It also brings to mind my own Mr Tumnal. I really want to write this story because if there ever was a ‘this year’s Time Traveller’s Wife’ then it’s Mr Tumnal… *grins*
