I am in lucky circumstances – the Danish publishing house Gyldendal has taken my manuscript and so it looks like I’m getting my first novel, DYNAMO, published. It’s really thrilling but there’s obviously a long way to go since I have to edit once, twice, perhaps even more. Sometime in January I’ll sit down and get started on the first major re-writing and it will require concentration and I probably need to escape for a week or two.
If anyone knows about a nice getaway, a little cottage, a summer house, an empty apartment somewhere, inside or outside of Denmark, I will be very happy to hear from you. I will have no income in January, so all I can offer is a few bottles of wine, perhaps a piece of art or scrubbing the oven and the fridge as a thank you. I don’t need anything fancy at all, just peace and solitude, heat and electricity, some walls, a roof and a floor. Perhaps a toilet too.
Please let me know – I will appreciate it all the way and you will help me get my book published :-)
