In a couple of weeks, I have to go on jury duty - a compulsory community service for almost everyone in the UK. Some might never get called, others are called more than once. It lasts two weeks but might be more if you're able to commit to a longer period. I'm not allowed to talk about what happens while I'm on the jury which is fair enough. I'm sort of looking forward to it but also not because I'd like to have finished the book I'm writing first. Not going to happen. I've read about the jury selection process in American thrillers but I don't know if we do the same in the UK. I wonder when I say I write erotic romance for a living whether any lawyer will want me. I'll have to see.
