Cutting Tentacles

In June I went to see my agent, Catherine, who, along with Amy Waite, a new member of staff at the agency, sat with me and made some suggestions on what to do with the new book.  At the moment it’s called Octopus Crush. I hope it stays that way, but you never can tell with publishers.  It’ll probably end up being called Hairy Octopus or His Dank Tentacles.  

Catherine wants cuts, and I can understand why.  It’s because my book is far too long.  One day, perhaps, I will assemble the cuts into Octopus Crush, the Author’s Cut, but it will be rambling and have too many scenes in which nothing happens.
