Who are you like?
That’s what you get asked when people realise you’ve written a book.
‘Er..not sure,’ used to be my response but not now. Nah, not ever now because, be-cause people – all of us need drawers to put things in or hooks to hang things on or, or… er… pigeon holes! that’s it, pigeon holes to place things into. They want to position you. It settles them. So now I say stuff like, ‘Oh, James Patterson,’ or sometime if I’m feeling particularly bold: ‘My books are like Dan Brown.’ Then I nod decisively in case I seem less than convinced.
Who am I like? God knows. I wish I had the courage of the great Elvis P, who told a producer “I don’t sound like nobody” when asked a similar question.
See ya anon.
