There’s a lot of out-and-about coming up in the next month for me. Gateshead, Sunderland, South Tyneside, Linlithgow, Bishopbriggs, Cambridge, Great Abington and Uphall. This will entail:
a series of train trips (quiet, peaceful, work-filled journeys)
hotel rooms (with central heating that turns off, not over the pub and with fairy-footed neighbours)
book stock to sign (which will have arrived in the right place on the right day)
books to sell (to kids whose parents actually knew I was coming and sent in money)
and lots of eager faces to talk to (without having to at the same time outshout the gym class next door, the dinner ladies beyond the cardboard partition, or the toddlers crying in the picture book section).
You can tell I write fiction …
Wish me luck!
P.S. I’m also on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure on Monday, having first messed up the delayed posting option so that it appeared on last Wednesday, and then being rescued by Damian Harvey, SAS techie guru, who put it (he hopes) where it belongs on the 8th. Check it out.
