Well, nearly up to 20K words of the new book (The Charnel Child). Will then make a submission to publisher (via agent). Very decent book – should get a deal, but don’t hold your breath. Apparently, things have never been tougher in terms of new acquisitions. Whatever.
Got a signing event for The Book of Orm tomorrow. Waterstones Arndale, 11am-4pm. Not sure why I’m doing the event really. When you make one pound per copy sold, it’s really not worth giving up your Saturday. Oh well. Will have to ponder strategy for world domination some time soon. Maybe I need to declare some Caliphate of Book Readers or sumfink. Yeah, that might work.
Summer school starts next week. Sigh. Fulltime teaching for two months. Gotta do it, to buy Cleopatra’s cat food. The things I do for that moggie. Oh, and I’m saving for the wedding next April, of course.
