Well my dear blog readers, it’s all kicking off round our way!
My publisher – Scholastic Children’s Books – announced the aquisition of “THE JOSHUA FILES” series title on Tuesday. And the news is that it seems to have grabbed some attention, which is great, which is wonderful, because it will hopefully help build awareness of the book.
My agent called me on Tuesday morning and told me that the Arts Editor of the Evening Standard wanted to interview me, which she did…and sure enough, they ran a little story in the late edition – on the same page as a big article about Harry Potter, next to one about the Arctic Monkeys.
It’s not my first time in the press. But before it tended to be things like “Information World Review”, on a page about Knowledge Management software and the like…
This is different and pretty, pretty, pretty cool.
I’m really looking forward to Harry Potter 7. And the huge bar of chocolate I plan to eat while reading it. The day will be sandwiched between two salsa events (Friday night and a Sunday matinee performance of the terrific UK-based son band, Soneando), so I should be able to burn the calories off…
It’s my turn to see the latest Harry Potter movie tonight…
Oh…I am currently hugely enjoying watching “The New Adventures of Old Christine” a new sitcom starring my favourite of the Seinfeld four, Julie Louis-Dreyfus. So much that I think I’ll give it it’s own blog entry…more soon.
Still got writer’s block, by the way. I have put a Recovery Plan in place. Luckily for me, it calls for things like going to the movies and reading.
