It's been a real labour of love getting to this stage with THE LAST TIGER; I started writing the novel when I was living in SW Victoria and working as a hack for the local paper. And that was about ten years ago.
It took numerous re-writes, numerous agents and numerous publishers to finally find its way into print with Glasgow-based Cargo. It felt like an endless trail of pit-falls but I am confident Tiger's found its way to the right man.
|On the publicity trail for The Last Tiger this week.|
Support for Tiger, by Mark and everyone at Cargo, has been the stuff or a writer's dreams so to keep my end of the bargain up, I'll be blogging a little about the Tasmanian tiger, or Thylacine as it's known, over here for the next few weeks. It's an interesting story - the tiger was a fascinating creature - and the rapid, and extremely sad, demise of the animal is a tale that haunts me.
As a taster, here's a little piece I wrote for the Daily Record about the tiger, the book and its journey so far.
