Dan Brown – on the flipside

July 31st, 2008

Poor Dan Brown. His latest novel is over a year late, and hasn’t yet been submitted to his publishers, who are taking a hit [source].

A while ago I heard rumour that he was on the phone to his editor frequently checking lots of details, as he was drafting it – not a good sign. If true, it sounds like insecurity over the new book (which is supposed to be about Kryptos and the CIA – so I’m quite interesting in reading it myself). Given all the attention, both good and bad, that The DaVinci Code attracted, I can understand his nervousness. It’s the flipside of the success we all hope for, and fair warning for any aspiring bestseller. Neither success nor failure is without its struggle; it’s just a matter of your attitude to it.

Come on Dan, let’s be ‘avin it! It’s only a book, after all.
