I woke up in Massachusetts and responded to an email from Mar Kaiser, our Germany-based editor, who said she’d just heard from Kara Lozier, who is currently working from Uzbekistan. I sent a WeChat to Tom in Beijing, and then it was time to pour my first cup of tea. There are emails from our production team in India at all hours of day and night, and with BEA (BookExpo) in New York next week, I’ve been on WeChat with people at four or five Chinese companies. I’ve had plenty of emails from Europe saying “You aren’t really awake now, are you?” and at the moment there are plenty of sign-offs “I’m going to bed now” or “Sleep well” – with the appropriate emoticons, of course!
