NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

T Minus 2 and a Bit Weeks…

… and I haven’t got a coherent blog post for you, I’m afraid. I’m alternating between feelings of wild elation and the feelings of a particularly confused rabbit frozen in the headlights right now, so coming up with anything remotely sensible is beyond me. September’s blog tour is taking shape nicely, though, with a wide variety of stops along the way. There are still a few places left, so if you fancy putting me up for a day, do drop me a line. I’m reasonably well behaved and I will try to leave your blog in the state it was before I arrived.

I’m also going to be posting an interview here very soon with Steve Moran of the excellent Willesden Herald Short Story Contest, at which time we will have a FREE GIVEAWAY. Which is a bit of a first for this blog and frankly rather exciting, so watch out for that.

I should also say that my online chum Nicola Morgan, whose splendid book Write to be Published has possibly the best page 246 ever committed to print, also has a new Kindle-only book out, called Tweet Right – The Sensible Person’s Guide to Twitter. I’d strongly recommend this to anyone out there who isn’t yet on Twitter or is on Twitter and can’t make sense of it, because she’s a great tweeter and she knows what she is talking about.

Finally, there’s a bit more Wickhampedia this week, although I have no idea what you’ll make of it. Incidentally, if anyone out there knows anyone really famous who’d like to publicise this a bit, it would, like, be really good, you know.

  1. You’re welcome on my blog anytime you want. Will you be doing a book tour in WH Smith stores?

    Ooh, yes please! How about September 7th? Not sure about actual real book tours yet, though – still working on that one.

    (BTW Did you spot my blink-and-you’ll-miss-it mention of “Strange Men…” here: http://www.nationalshortstoryweek.org.uk/guesteditors/jonathanpinnock.htm? I was trying to make up for not doing a proper review like I meant to until Christmas intervened!)

  3. September 7th sounds mighty fine. And I missed that mention of Strange Men (must be sleeping on the job) – thank you.

    Excellent – I’ll put the 7th in the spreadsheet :)
