  1. Well I go away on holiday and when I come back I find out you’re a local celebrity, published author and as a result no doubt part of the Reading Glitterati. Just listening to your interview in the background as I wake after a night shift. Nice to get a name check in it early on! Well done with that and the book.

    You should keep the momentum up by getting on with plans for another cycle. Would you not rather head off on the bike next year and give yourself something to Blog/Write about than be about for the Olympics?

    • The idea of a ‘Reading Glitterati’ actually exisiting makes me chuckle. Others can judge whether or not I am part of it. As far as the Olympics goes, I think my enthusiasm may wain a little if I don’t get chosen as a volunteer. I have yet to hear anything on that front. Watch this space!

    • Sorry, it’s shameless marketing. Trying to create a buzz… A bit of momentum… Fear not, things will quieten down when I go back to school on the 5th September. Please leave a review on Amazon once you’ve finished the book, good, bad or indifferent. Hopefully not too bad I hope however. Enjoy the read!

  2. Planning on getting it when I get back from Paris.. Good luck with the interview, I am sure it will go well!

What do you think?
