I’d like to say after last week’s double whammy of excitement that things have now settled down and I have given up media publicity (!) in favour of a quiet writing reading life. But public appearances appear to be like buses, and so on we go, with an apology to anyone who has already had ample notification of these events. (I mean I would hate anyone to have missed out!)
First of all, even before I was in touch with Thornberry or Love a Happy Ending I had been contacted via LinkedIn (ah, it was worth joining after all!) by Scottish writer Jane Riddell to do a guest appearance on her Papillon blog and I have to say she hosted an excellent interview which reveals a bit more about my e-publishing deal and which you can still read here. (And if you are fed up of me there are some other very interesting guests either side).
Then as soon as the Summer Audience event was over, the busy bees at LAHE (as we insiders call it) asked for content for my very own Featured Author Page which is already up and running. This isn’t the first pitch I have written for A Kettle of Fish by a long chalk, but I am hanging on to the hope that it just might be the last, and so I hope some of you will head over and take a look. Comments welcome of course.
LAHE also have a highly organised blog programme to which authors are asked to contribute for time to time and so right now I really should be writing something for the next ‘Who knew’ feature. Finally, a call has arrived from What the Dickens which I suspect means that another set of e-reviews is due, and so I have to sort out some reading as well as writing.
You can imagine how much electronic communication all of this has involved much of it on Facebook, another double-edged sword in the battle between communication and time management. But this blog is still my home ground, and if I have a ‘brand’ (thanks Stephanie!) as I believe I ought this is where it’s at. Perhaps this blog will become a channel for news (at last!) rather than reflection, or maybe it will trundle on as before. Either way, thanks for the support so far, and do keep in touch.
