Yesterday was the deadline for submitting the final manuscript for my 300-page crime novel Cloak and Veil: The Saudi Sisterhood to my German publisher.

I finished at 10pm Berlin time, though the editor was probably watching the Champions' League final.

Anyhow, fingers crossed that this decade-old 'masterpiece' makes the grade this time - it's 1000% better than the first in the trilogy (though I may be biased), which explains why the publisher spiked it 10 years ago. Now though, the book's topical.

Funnily enough, one character is similar to Lisbeth Salander (the book was written around the same time as Dragon Tattoo), and the hard-drinking Irish, Elvis impersonator is a dead ringer for my coordinator at work (who dresses up as Elvis at weekends), though I didn't meet him till 2010.

Now to find a UK publisher. Luckily the trilogy are all stand alone books!
