I’m so sorry I haven’t blogged in a week or so. Last week was crazy with the Beast From The East battering us with snow, snow, and oh look – more snow! I hate the cold wet stuff at the best of times, but at the beginning of March? When it’s supposed to be spring and daffodils are preparing to pop up? No thank you!
Anyway, onto nicer things!
First of all I wanted to share some fabulous news that I heard a few days before the snow hit…. I have just received an offer to write another book! I can’t share what it is at the moment, but I’m absolutely thrilled to be writing it. The book will involve elements that I have never organised before, and I’m having a fabulous time getting everything together and preparing for all manner of exciting sections! As soon as I can announce the project, I will do so right here. In the meantime, I can tell you that it will be out in or around August 2019.
The second interesting news I want to share, is the cover for the Korean version of my Madonna book. Isn’t it groovy? I don’t have my copies yet, but as soon as I do, I’ll post some pics here. It’s always exciting to see my books translated into other languages and this is the first time I’ve made it to Korea, so I’m extremely happy!
Publicity is hotting up for The Battered Body Beneath the Flagstones, and rumour has it that the book is due at the publisher’s offices this week! This week!! After finishing the book a year ago, it’s so fabulous to hear that I will soon have it in my hands. As soon as I receive my copy, I’ll post my thoughts, photos (and if I can figure out how to do it), a video! Meanwhile, I have a meeting with my publicist this week, to figure out the next move in our efforts to get the book noticed. In that regard, if you have a Book, Victorian or History blog and you’d like to review the book and maybe do an interview, please leave me a comment and I’ll get in touch as soon as I can. I’d love to hear from you!!
Of course not long after The Battered Body is released, The Girl will be here! Already my publicist has had a good response to the mailing and I will be doing radio interviews and various other events, nearer the time.
Apart from all of the above, there are a few more news items to share… In May I’ll be appearing at a London university to talk about Marilyn, and in June, an article I wrote about her will be published in a UK magazine. More news on both of these things, as soon as I can.
In the meantime, I hope that wherever you are in the world, you are happy, warm and full of joy.
Until next time,
