Sometimes I need to be quiet. I have spent a lot of the past two years talking about books, writing, myself, blah blah blah. It's time to give you and me a rest from me. It's like the old system of crop rotation where farmers left a field fallow every few years to give it a change to recover, and - apparently - for earthworms to grow.

So I won't be doing any public events or mainstream media in 2018 (unless something truly spectacular comes along). I will still be on social media, though  (https://twitter.com/Tracy_Chevalier https://www.instagram.com/tracychevalierwriter/  https://www.facebook.com/tracychevalierwriter/), and on this website.

There are many other wonderful writers out there with things to say as well as words that should be read. If you want a suggestion, try the novel Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor. Wow. It taught me a different way to tell a story, and here I thought this old dog already knew all the tricks...

 Right, I'm off to grow some worms and write a new novel. Happy New Year!
