Argue your thoughts
A Bird in the Hand (a bird in the hand book), my latest novel, should always be published, it was only a matter of time. We were educated to think that chickens were not only good to feed but also important.
And I knew it was a textbook that would be useful to them. Salts, sugars, smoke were the fruit of an obsession with conservation, a longing to do it better and to know the sciences about it. At first you get the core of an ideas, then you begin to discuss it with your boyfriends and mates.
When I' m doing my research, I' m remembering the crockery. You never just write a goddamn thing. I' ve got a long menu of Estonian food that I have not yet seen the day it was born. It is both the trip and the goal, which is why I often write the intro.
Besides researching the backgrounds and recipes, the foggiest and most thrilling part of a novel bubbles all the while. It' the feeling you want to give the ledger. So I extract many pieces of references - even pieces of textured papermaking - and put them all together.
I' ve glued many images and samples of typefaces onto large scale skulls. This is the most thrilling part of any textbook for me. I' ve worked with Miranda, my creator, since my very first ever publication, so we know each other very well. You have to have your own kind of life.
I have many options for the page layout and type. I have a lot of materials, many extras and long tutorials. As soon as I have made long listings of courts, I want to make them out and get my friend and my journalist, Lucy Bannell, to look at them.
