Doing business with my sister Lesley Evans is a rather special experience.
Recently she kindly agreed to do illustrations for three of my novels: they will be needed when I finally get around to reformatting my backlist as ebooks and publishing them on Kindle.
Now, three illustrations turned out to be quite a big ask.
After this circus, Richard Parkin incorporated the illustrations into three terrific ebook covers, and sent me his perfectly reasonable invoice. Which I paid the same day: Alice and I are always delighted with his work.
I asked Lesley for her invoice, and she sent it by post. It's on my whiteboard, beaming benevolence and equanimity.
