Leaving is My Colour by Amy Burns


Welcome to my Goodreads blog.

I began writing this post two days ago, not long after the postman delivered the advance copies of Leaving is My Colour. It seemed appropriate that my first entry follow closely on the heels of unpackaging the perfectly bound block of words, a.k.a. – my first novel.
