Thursday May 8th – Self-publishing blog diary

Review by Byron Rogers in the Spectator – not sure what it’ll do for my reputation as he starts it off by saying I threw a kettle at him … (it’s true – I did!) – but the review is very flattering.Do live interview with Radio Manchester and recorded interview with Radio Jersey – both very thoughtful interviews which last about 10 mins each. On spec I go into Waterstones in Notting Hill and Piccadilly and Hatchards asking if they’d like me to sign books which they do, so I do. Review in this month’s Conde Nast Traveller by Giles Foden – short but very nice – ‘a jewel … a wonderful book … fascinating’. Just seen the First Post review by Nicholas Shakespeare – I’d missed it but my brother had found it and posted it on Facebook.
