Lets see – time for a general catch up.
I feel like someone has punched me in the face. I'm actually waiting for the anaesthetic to wear off from having a filling done. I have a lovely dentist who doesn't hurt me at all.
So long as I pay promptly.
Yesterday on Amazon 'Da Book' peaked at #66 overall ranking and at #2 on the pre-release chart. My ego is coming along nicely.
Tomorrow I'm being picked up by a car from ITN News in order to do a TV interview. Yes – I am joyful. I just need to find something suitable to wear. If some bright spark could digitise it for me I would be eternally grateful. (Unless I make a prat of myself, in which case I'll find a cave to hide in).
I'm on annual leave for the next two weeks and a week of that will be spent sunning myself by the pool in the Dominican Republic. Therefore blogging may be a bit few and far between depending on any access I have out there. I think I'll need the holiday so I can deal with the book launch the day after I come back.
I'm also doing an email interview with Time Out, and various radio and print bits are planned for after I come back. I am _loving_ whoring myself for publicity and I'm extremely glad that I chose the Friday Project as my publishers. I chose them for exactly this reason, that it would be *fun*.
The Mac is coming along lovely, especially now it has a battery that works (and no, it's not a 'Pro').
Now I just need to run around like a loon getting everything sorted before I fly off for my anticipated relaxing week.
UPDATE: The interview will take place between 12.45 and 1.30pm on 'London Today', ITV1. It will be live. I will be nervous. I won't see it unless someone tapes it for me. This may be for the best.
