Usually a diary is told in chronological order but I am suffering from something that I’m pretty sure Josh himself experiences: blog drift! The events of my life are moving so rapidly that I need a whole mess of catch-up to be able to document anything of interest!
I say ‘events moving so rapidly’ but mainly it’s down to one thing: naughty me, I still haven’t finished Joshua 5! My deadline is mid-May. My stretch-deadline is end of May. Cue a bunch of writerly excuses worthy of Ed Reardon himself. But basically, that’s the deal. If I’m going to avoid a late delivery then I need to write, write, write like the wind!
But, my dear blog readers, all blessed six of you, you all still want to hear about DARK PARALLEL, don’t you?
So watch out for the Dark Parallel Reverse Diaries! They start with the launch party and end with the very first time I showed off a shiny new copy of Dark Parallel in a school. College Du Leman, your photos will soon be here…
You can find photos of the Dark Parallel launch party on Flickr. Thanks to everyone who attended, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! The focus this year was on the friends and readers who helped me to make the live action sequence that appears in the Dark Parallel book trailer. We watched the ‘making of Dark Parallel’ film and oh, we did chortle. We also ate cake. There was an after-party at the pub, we sat outdoors!
April is a great month in which to release a book. Thanks to all at Scholastic for another great job with a shiny new book!
