9.57am. Friday, 16th July.
I’m sitting in the Grange Hotel in York and I have just written the last sentence of the last Alex Rider novel, SCORPIA RISING. The last chapter is called “Departures” and it’s incredibly sad.
Rewriting starts when I get to Crete. But I just thought I’d mark the moment with this brief blog. This afternoon I’m being given a doctorate by York University. Quite a day.
