Back down to earth.

Just back from a week in Eurodisney with the kids, excellent fun but they sure know how to keep taking money off you in that place! Wallet says ouch!

BiteMarks had shifted somewhere around the 500 copies mark on my return, and I'm pleased with that for a start - Tim Roux at Night Publishing has done a great job of keeping me informed about the various places that he's touting the back around, and now I'm back and at the day-job again I've got a renewed sense of purpose too (as in I'd rather be writing!).

I'm aiming for a few endorsements from celebs at present - not the easiest thing in the world to do when you don't know anybody remotely famous...for those of you not in the know, the process goes something like this: find out who celebrity person's agent is and send them a polite enquiry; most of the time get ignored or get a terse and impersonal 'go away' (I can only assume that they either get this a lot, or that there are way too many nutters out there and they're forced to be very guarded!), every so often get a non-commital 'yes, send it over, but xxxx is very busy and I can't give you any indication of when they might ever look at it'; last step - send the book and hope for the best!

Okay, back to the grindstone x

  2. Sounds about as fun as a root canal. I'm not famous but I'm promoting you anyway, sent a plug on Twitter today.
