No posting for a while – I’ve been busy with final edits and the incorporation of a few b&w photos into the text of my book. I’m almost there – at the point when I convert the whole thing into one pdf file and upload it to the publisher. But now the Christmas holidays are going to intervene and I shall have to wait until 2008 to see the finished product.

Meanwhile, I have been preparing for the marketing ‘onslaught’. I have drafted the launch press release, made up mailing and email lists of recipients, designed and printed A4 ‘posters’ for the counters of my local bookshops – so, when I actually receive the finished book from the printers, I shall be already to go.

I’ve given up on the famous actress; I did eventually hear from a sidekick that she was tremendously busy and tied up until April, so I shall go ahead without her.

Don’t know why I am doing this, really. I’ve installed an ‘analyser’, according to which my blog has been visited by 23 people so far (and some of those ‘visits’, I suspect, may have been my own) and no-one has left a single comment. It’s like publishing into space. Perhaps I am missing something . . .

    Just to make myself feel better, I’m posting my first comment!
