I’m certainly not one to bombard the blogosphere with information and updates, am I? I guess I had better lift my game a bit. It was way back in March when I announced that my book was officially being published. I’m delighted to be able to report that early this week I received the first proofs back and assuming that I didn’t miss anything, there were about ten seconds worth of changes to be made.
The book has a cover design too.There’s a funny story about the first mock ups, but I can’t talk about that yet. And I can’t reveal the actual selected design either. You’ll have to trust me, it is going to look striking and cool, and if you can’t say my convoluted name, you’ll be able to describe the cover to booksellers.
I recently answered some questions for a profile in a magazine. I can’t talk about that yet, either.
See a pattern?
But the book is coming. Soon I will talk about it and maybe people will wish I would shut up. Until then, here’s a silly photo or two of an attempt at getting a more natural bio picture.
I think I was saying something along the lines of ‘If I pull the scarf tighter I’ll only have one chin.’ Not the most natural look. I can’t say I habitually walk around with my arms in the air and a goofy expression on my face.
Spring plus me equals sneezing and wheezing. The hay fever was kicking in by this point. I used to have a little daydream about the Gardening Australia team popping by for a chat. Seeing the nutrient deficient leaves in the background of this one, I hope they don’t drop by this week.
