Andrew Davidson, author of "The Gargoyle"

Andrew Davidson, author of the critically acclaimed The Gargoyle
on how his life has changed since the release of his novel:
***

The biggest change in my life is simply the amount of travel that I'm getting to do. In the last year I've visited the States (San Francisco, New York, Seattle, New Orleans), done the Canadian book festival circuit (Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, and Winnipeg - where I live), and been to England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, and Croatia.

Over the next couple of months, I will be in Germany, Poland, Australia, and New Zealand; possibly/probably more countries as well. The Gargoyle is confirmed for translations in twenty-six languages so far, and I'll pretty much travel to any country that invites. So as they keep coming out, I keep going anywhere the publishers invite me...

Congrats on leaving the world of 9-5 to follow your writing dream. The best advice I can give is just show up at your desk and work every day; it is far too easy to get fooled by the idea that you'll have more inspiration tomorrow. Inspiration tends to come with perspiration.

Best,
Andrew
